I found a new way to protect your sharp things (rotary cutters and fingers). Use old eyeglass cases. You can buy them cheap at thrift shops or easily make your own.

I use all those hints!!
Have folded oven mitt scissor holder from the goodies bag at a convention. Soft foam vinyl cases for my medium sized scissors and small hinged glasses case for my embroidery scissors - kept pricking myself with them so they had to go into a hard case.
Bought a new rotary cutter and it self covers and has a locking pin.
Safety first for yourself and your other tools.

Great tips ladies. Thank you for sharing. :~)

I use cubes of Styrofoam that comes as protective packing and push the points of my scissors into them; especially the very small ones with delicate points. Yes, I use old eyeglass cases for my rotary cutters. You can make one by using a potholder from a dollar store and folding it in half; then stitch across the bottom and up one side. These give you a loop to hang the item by if you can't use drawer space!! Avis

Speaking of Styrofoam - when you paint a room, put a handful of picture-weight nails into the Styrofoam and paint the tips. Use these to hang pictures. If you change your mind later, they are very unobtrusive. I usually paint a picture frame or mat as well.

I kept the hard plastic part that protected my rotary cutter in the package. It is upside down in a drawer in the plastic. Thanks. I will hunt up a hinged eyeglass case that the cutter and the plastic fit into!

Sounds like a wonderful idea.

Good idea/Lillian

Or you could sew a nice ITH case and embroider the name of the object on it.
