Confiscated Scissors Transformed into Stabby Spiders

Illustration for article titled Confiscated Scissors Transformed into Stabby Spiders

Ever wonder what happens to all the pointy objects confiscated by those eagle-eyed defenders of justice at airport security? Well, at least some of the potentially-stabby scissors are turned into sweet spiders by artist Christopher Locke. He's got a step-by-step on his site on how he did it, and one thing is definitely for certain: if these scissors didn't make it onto an airplane before, they definitely won't now. Yikes.
