If the scissors are unused, this can express a desire to begin a new relationship or make an existing one stronger.
Dream scissors may also suggest that you are dividing your attention among too many people.
If you are cutting with scissors, you are in the process of making an important decision. Another interpretation for scissors is that they are a symbol of sexuality, either male or female, depending on whether they are open or closed. A knot in a dream symbolizes the various ties in your life and relationships with others.
If you carefully untie a knot in your dream, this suggests a readiness to deal with a problem, rather than ignoring it by impatiently cutting the knot in two. The knot also has sexual symbolism, representing a couple’s personal and sexual union.

If the envelope is open, this signifies daily problems that can be tackled but if the envelope is closed, it may be harder to solve the problems.
If the envelope is bulging, you may be feeling that your life is overburdened with worries and emotional expectations from those around you.

Jung considers three a mystical number; the three servants of the Queen of the Night in The Magic Flute; the three witches in Macbeth; the three wishes that are free.
