I recently received a bunch of the new collection of essential crafting products from Elmer’s® CraftBond™ and X-ACTO®, and they have inspired a lot of creativity at my house.
As an avid photographer, I am always in the middle of a scrapbook project, and I will admit that I often look for the easy way out. While I love scrapbooking and making photo albums for my three sons, there just is not time enough.
In my Elmer’s® CraftBond™ and X-ACTO® bzz kit I found:
- All-Purpose Glue Stick,
- Permanent Tape Runner,
- Clear Glue Pen,
- Assortment of sticky spots
- Zig Zag Decorative Edge Scissors,
- Scalloped Decorative Edge Scissors,
- Corner Rounder Punch
I absolutely love the X-ACTO Zig Zag Decorative Edge Scissors and the Scalloped Decorative Edge Scissors, as they easily transform any paper into an elegant card, and they are great for when I have to send off a small note to someone with a package or even a prize from one of my giveaways here at Frugality Is Free.
My four-year-old seems to be fancying the Zig Zag Decorative Edge Scissors. He just recently started becoming proficient with a pair of scissors, and the X-ACTO scissors seem to be very easy for him to manage. The X-ACTO Corner Rounder Punch is good for those cards that need to be a little more conservative yet still stylish.
The Elmer’s CraftBond dual top glue pen is another favorite, because it is great for those detailed scrapbooking projects, or for making seasonal decorations. In my family making our own Christmas decorations is a big tradition, and I know the Elmer’s CraftBond dual top glue pen will come in handy for the Christmas projects. I will definitely be keeping the Elmer’s CraftBond dual top glue pen to myself, and my boys are only allowed to use this one under careful supervision, as they have a tendency of forgetting to put the tops back on their glue sticks.
The Elmer’s CraftBond permanent tape runner is fantastic, and I cannot believe this is my first encounter with a tape runner, but it will definitely not be my last. A big plus is the fact that the Elmer’s CraftBond permanent tape runner is refillable
