Functions The Holiday Scissor works just like a regular scissor. Simply cut and snip! To use the tape function simply turn towards the handle of the scissor and pull a strip of the tape out. Another small strip of tape will “pop out,” ready for the next use When tape runs out, simply take cartridge out and replace with refills. To use the ribbon shredder slide in a strand of ribbon between the handles of the scissor Grip handles together tightly and pull the ribbon across and the ribbon will also curl as it shreds.
