For my mother to answer.
I think it's the clay they coat paper with that hurts the blades. So you could be A-OK. In fact the world will not end if you cut paper with sewing scissors, but people who have sewing scissors are just the sorts of people who get really picky about these things.

When I was young my mother had a big cloth poster thing "Why are Teddy Bears Sew Lovable?" (which confused me greatly, gramatically) in her sewing room. One of the reason teddy bears were preferable to brat kids was "THEY DON'T CUT PAPER WITH THE SEWING SCISSORS". So I'm no stranger to the pickiness.

The reason you would want to use sewing scissors to cut fabric is because they are better scissors. Which is also why you wouldn't want scissors that had even looked at paper to be touching your fabric.
If you don't care, you can probably use whatever scissors you want, as long as they will cut.
I think it's eye-hooks and S-hooks. The eye-hooks are the screws with a loop.

I think you would find regular scissors difficult to cut fabric with. Why not buy a cheapo pair of sewing scissors.It's eye bolts and s hooks.
