THE PROPER WAY TO HOLD A PAIR OF SCISSORS

Start with the hand in a thumb up position. Place the thumb in the smaller top loop of the scissors' handle. Maintain this position while cutting. Wrap the pointer finger around the bottom of the scissors handle, using the pointer finger to lead the way by guiding the direction of the scissors. Place the middle and ring fingers in the bottom loop. If the pinkie finger will fit in the bottom loop, place it there also. If not, the pinkie finger should remain behind the scissors. Open and close scissors while slowly pushing them forward.
