Scrapbooking is a very serious undertaking. Ask any scrapbook enthusiast and they will give you an interesting list of must-have tools that you will need in your scrapbook tool kit . Two of these required tools are scrapbooking scissors and scrapbooking punches. By now you might be wondering what these objects are and what their roles are in the art of scrapbooking.

Unlike regular scissors however, scrapbooking scissors are more the decorative type and produce interesting patterned cuts. They come in an variety of patterns, with the most popular being scallops, ripple, waves, zigzags, and lace, among others. Experimenting with the various patterns can produce interesting results so be creative when using your scrapbooking scissors. Investing in several pair would be ideal especially if you're really serious about scrapbooking. These aren't just strictly for scrapbooking uses however. You can also use them in all sorts of paper crafts such, as creating your own greeting cards.

Scrapbooking punches on the other hand are more similar to their predecessors, the office punches. A typical office punch will simply punch a circular hole in the paper while scrapbooking punches can come in all sorts of imaginable shapes and sizes such as stars, hearts, animals, alphabet, squares, and even border and corner punches. There are also scrapbooking punches with changeable templates wherein you can easily change the punch's cutting shape as you see fit.

Scrapbooking punches are very valuable for scrapbooking because they provide background embellishment and they make it easy to produce identical shapes without having to resort to drawing the shapes and then cutting them individually. They can normally punch through heavy paper, but you might have trouble if you try to use it on cardstock, very thin paper, and handmade paper.

Scrapbook punches are versatile tools because you can create different effects using its shapes. For instance, you can reshape cutouts to form a new shape. Simply cut square and heart cutouts in half to make triangles and flower petals. You can experiment to your heart's content and try to discover what kinds of effects you can produce with your scrapbook punches.

It is also important that you take care of your scrapbooking tools in order for them to last a long time and maintain continuous easy use. There are various methods you can utilize to take care of your scrapbooking punches and scrapbooking scissors. Wipe the blades after usage in order to prevent build-up by debris. You can even use an eraser over the blades to get rid of paper particles and dust. Also, wash the blades every now then with soap and hot water. To sharpen the blades, try cutting through wax paper or tin foil, or you can use sandpaper to sharpen them. As much as possible try to avoid using them to cut through thick paper as it can displace the blades and break the mechanism. Maintenance is a must, but try not to overdo it as well.
