Retractable Scissor Fob

 Another simple Christmas Present Idea.
I found these retractable reel pulls in Savers the other day and they were 5 for $2. and I was estatic! I thought they would be a great thing to turn into scissor keepers. They had seven packets so I bought them all, so now I have 35 of these beauties to tun into gifts.
Very much in the same way that I made the other gifts, all hand sewing and circles. First I took off the metal clip on off the back, made a lovely puffy pincushion and sewed it onto the fabric covered cardboard band around the middle and on the back added a fabric covered circle to enclose it all. All I have to do is hot glue a pin brooch back to the back. Another gift idea done.
