Scissorcraft Survives Through Kindness of Strangers
Scissorcraft survives solely through the kindness of strangers. These days Scissorcraft is relatively invisible from the Internet. Can't possibly compete in this electronic world with electronic apps that play themselves and other distractions that dwarf imagination and creativity.
As of 5/3/2018 all current and future paid Scissorcraft subscribers are now lifetime, never-expiring, subscriptions. If you are a previous member simply log back on, pay the low fee and enjoy the best the Internet has to offer...in my humble opinion :-)
As the e-world grows traffic evoves to the highest bidder. If it's not an app it does't exist. As apps take over the Internet, like push button cartoon cash registers did to fast food joints, public access to unfiltered (aka un-apped-pc-sanctified) content becomes ever narrower in scope.
How children/people in general can expect to develop creativity or imaginatation while placated by apps and other entertainment without effort? Apparently I am not the market, and thankfully so.
These images are for printing on paper and intended for hands-on activities with scissors, paper, pencils, coloring crayons, markets and so on.
Scissorcraft is not sanctified by the PC crowd. These websites contain images and ideas familiar and interesting to me, one person, one artist with untameable curiosity and desire to share knowledge. What you get for your small entry fee is access to a huge collection of my images. Images I drew for my grandchildren to help them learn about cultures and traditions of the world as I see it so they could grow into well-rounded, educated adults.
One logon, same passcode gives you access to all seventeen Scissorcraft websites available on the pull-down menus.
PLEASE: Support Scissorcraft. membership allows you to browse safely without obnoxious advertisments, pop-ups/unders or snoopy marketing tracking to worry about. Scissorcraft pages are safe for classroom overhead display in teaching situations.
Plus you can talk to me.

I am here and answer every single email inquiry. I do custom work. If you are in need of free illustrations for a particular theme, contact me. I am open for all suggestions and challenges to add value for all members of Scissorcraft.
For the cost of a lunch meal, members have access to the sum total of my life's work. I rely upon income generated from my work and request members resist the temptation of electronically sharing or posting in blogs and image sharing sites.
Scissorcraft is Classroom Safe
No advertising means no surprises. Sissorcraft images are safe to display in classroom, audience participation situations using overhead projectors or classroom PCs and other display options.
I began Scissorcrafts to provide quality color book crafts to entertain and educate my own grandchildren over the years as they grew and matured. Fortunately these web sites also provided the perfect repository for all the boxes of sketches and doodles I've made and carted around for 30 years or so. To date Scissorcraft holds approximately forty thousand images specifically intended to entertain and educate children, parents, teachers and care givers.
Scissorcraft will be here and growing in content for years to come simply because I love to draw and create and will continue to do so :-)
Custom orders don't upset me.
If you have a specific need for an image to be personally illustrated please feel free to contact me. There will never be a specific charge as long as you agree the image may be shared with other paid Scissorcraft members. It is important to check back regularly to review new content. I update these images every day of the week.
I love that people find my images useful but it does bother me when people re-post, share or take images to emblazon upon marketing products for profit without including me in the decision for prior financial compensation so I implore members to show respect for my work and not repost.
I believe Scissorcraft images and activities are worth the visit and the cost of a very low priced subscription membership.
Note: Because once logged in with access to all my images, no refunds can be issued once paid membership activates and member logs into Scissorcraft web sites.
My Scissorcraft images are unique and personally illustrated. Some images are re-creations of ancient folk art and public domain images.
