10 Gift Ideas for Crafters

craft tools 

Sizzix Big Shot Die Cut Machine

Can I tell you how much I love this thing?  It has saved so much time cutting out shapes and patterns for our projects that it isn’t even funny.  It will cut multiple sheets of paper and will even cut multiple layers of fabric! We cut out burlap leaves for our Thankful Bucket Garland with it.  The best part is that that they sell the die cuts at all craft stores and online.

 Fabri-Tac Adhesive

If you have never used this adhesive you are so missing out!  Fabri-Tac glue works like hot glue without the heat.  It is designed to be washable, dries clear, and is acid-free. My favorite part is that if I want to take a project on the go, but can’t bring my glue gun, I can bring this!  You can see how we used it on our Lace Embellished Tote Bag { a perfect gift idea too! } This also comes in very handy for projects for the kiddos because it dries super fast and it is safe to handle.

Martha Stewart Crafts Fringe Scissors

You may remember the Thanksgiving placemats that Trish made with these bad boys?  They are so much fun to use!  I plan on using them to fringe some crepe paper for New Years and who knows what else!

Heat’n Bond Lite Iron-on Adhesive

This is a daily must have for both Trish and I.  Any time that we do appliqués of any type we always use this to adhere the fabrics together.  We simply stitch around the appliqué and it doesn’t leave any residue that will gunk up the needle on your sewing machine. This is far better that the webbing-type adhesive, especially when it comes to removing the paper backing!

Martha Stewart Crafts Glitter Glue

I don’t know what the magic formula is for this stuff, but it works wonders!  It is a little thicker than regular glue and I love that it comes with it’s own brush.  Brings back memories of being so excited to use rubber cement as a child.  I guess I have always been a crafting geek!

Grabbit Magnetic Pin Cushion

Thsi little guy is the BEST THING EVER!  This handy pincushion is magnetic and if you put it on your ironing  board, it will stick to the board and the pins will stick to it.  So, Santa, if you are reading this… Trish needs one of these :)

craft tools

Porcelaine China Paint Marker

Do you remember my super cute Thanks A Latte teacher gift? Well, she used this super fine tip porcelaine marker to paint on regular china and it looked fabulous.  This marker can be air-dried or baked and will stay on the china… even after washing!

Rust-Oleum Heirloom White Spray Paint

After using nearly every brand of spray paint, we are a fan of Rust-Oleum’s Heirloom White above any other off white paint.  It covers better and requires less coats, overall. We used this color on our  JOY Letters for Trish’s Christmas Mantel.   I would also say that the color is just so pretty and is the perfect neutral color for a ton of our projects!

craft tools

Multi Temp Cordless Gun

This glue gun sure does make a crafter’s life much easier.  Not only is it multi-temp, it is cordless!  Not only is it cordless, you can prop it up right on its bottom.  Love!

Silhouette Cameo Starter Kit

Yep.  This one pretty much speaks for itself!
