MADISON, Wis. (June 16, 2014) – Whether you’re personalizing a school project or creating one-of-a-kind apparel and accessories with duct tape, every crafter needs a great pair of scissors. To help people spend more time creating and less time struggling with sticky scissors, Fiskars and Duck® brand duct tape have partnered to introduce Fiskars® Duck® Edition Scissors.
To celebrate the launch, the “Imagination on a Roll” sweepstakes begins today on the Fiskars Facebook page where fans can share their Duck Tape® crafting project ideas for a chance to win 21 rolls of Duck Tape® and the new Fiskars® Duck® Edition scissors, a prize valued at more than $90.
