I couldn't find a pencil topper that I liked so I decided to make my own............Not in a hurry to make any more any time soon since while trying to cut the hole for the pencil to go through I put the scissors through my finger instead..

Yep. Been there. Done that. It always surprises me that others do the same things I do. We keep the bandaid people in business.

Ouch, no fun at all. Please take care you don't get an infection. I really like the suggestion below. I think I might have to look for one of those.

Very cute toppers. Thanks for showing them. Sorry to hear about your finger, I hope shopping makes it feel better. Here's something you can shop for. Its called a Buttonhole Cutter Set, I use it for all kinds of holes. With the mini cutting mat underneath, just a light tap with a hammer and voila, no stabbed fingers.

Won't think too much about your finger hurt! I use to faint if I see or think of blood. So I try to avoid concentrating on it - but I feel so sorry for you and wish you relief soon.
Please take care in future - Love and Hugs Maria

The pencil toppers are nice but not good that their creator must suffer

Safety first please!
Maybe you wee using the 'wrong' sort of scissors for the job.?!?..
Some scissors cut well at the tip while others are better near the pivot point.
That spot hurts the worst, I think. Ouch!! in sympathy.
A nice bandage to cover and some nice ice cream to sooth the hurt should do the trick.

Oh! my Loralye, that looks so painful. I hope you don't get an infection. Your pencil toppers look great anyway. Love Chris


I think you were thinking of a HEMOSTAT Loralye - but they do not have sharp pointy ends, more like clamps. I use them sometimes for pulling thread through my needle when the automatic needle threader is out of alignment!
