Craft-tastic Yarn Giraffes Kit

When beginning this craft, it's important to make sure that your cardboard pieces are lined up and assembled firmly together. Having extra double-sided tape around can be handy, especially to help any loose yarn stick to the cardboard when wrapping. Don't forget to pull the yarn tightly when wrapping around the cardboard, and also to keep the yarn as flat and smooth as possible. Tip: don't twist the yarn!

Craft-tastic Paper Bowls Kit

This is one of our favorite crafts, but it does take some patience. Start by generously applying glue to both sides of the paper circle, then placing it onto the bowl form provided. We find that it's best if you begin placing them around the rim, then work towards the center. Know that it's okay to have gaps between the circles - this is normal!

Also, if you are having trouble getting your paper circles to curve with the bowl, wait a few minutes for the glue to become tacky, then press down the paper edges and they will stay in place. While you are waiting for the glue to try between coats, don't forget to wrap your foam applicator in plastic wrap so the glue doesn't dry onto the applicator brush.

Craft Crush Felt Succulents Kit

One of the coolest things about our Felt Succulents Kit is that you don't necessarily need to display them in the tray included, but you can actually use them individually or separate them into groups for decor around your home or office.

When you start this craft, it's important to make sure that you are rolling the felt tightly, and to secure the rolled felt petals tightly with the rubber bands provided, even if it means wrapping them around a few times.

Once you've created a tight roll of felt and secured it, arrange the petals by pulling on them gently to separate and create dimension. This may take some practice and finessing, to get the desired look you want. Be patient!

Once you've finished your succulent, customize it with colored chalk to make it look realistic and for added texture. Tip: use a little bit of hairspray to set the chalk and voilà! You've just created beautiful, felt succulents.
