The Sewing Scissors sticker
"These may look like tweezers, but in fact they are nifty little scissors and they're very sharp - perfect for snipping fine threads."
First appearance Paper Mario: Sticker Star (2012)
“When compressed by a team of Toads, this catapult is capable of low-orbit launches. As the bladed end is lethal, this was likely a discarded prototype.”
Sticker Museum plaque, Paper Mario: Sticker Star

The Sewing Scissors (known as the Sewing Clippers in the British English version) are a Thing in Paper Mario: Sticker Star. They are found in Bowser's Snow Fort. Before boarding a cart, Mario must head right to find them sitting on a pile of crates. Once collected, they remain in Mario's Album until they are into a Sticker at a Sling-a-Thing station. Once they have been used as a sticker, they return to their original position. They can also be purchased from the Shady Toad for 90 Coins. The Sewing Scissors, like the other types of scissors, come in great handy during the second phase of battling Bowser in Bowser's Sky Castle.

The Sewing Scissors take up only one square in Mario's album. If and when they are used in battle, five appear onscreen, drifting into a circle toward the center. They then slide offscreen and start cutting toward the center, snipping apart the screen and destroying any enemies thereafter. The player may also tap A Button as they are cutting the screen to increase the overall damage.

The Sewing Scissors can also be placed into the Sticker Museum as #1, alongside the other cut-related Things. Their basic description notes their similarity to tweezers and helpful purpose, while their museum description identifies them as a catapult tossed aside due to their dangerous edge.
