Craft and Tell from Elmer’s and X-Acto

This post may contain affiliate links. Please read my Privacy and Disclosure Notice for more information.

One weekend at the end of March I hosted a Craft & Tell gathering sponsored by Elmer’s and X-Acto who sent a box of crafting nirvana (see below) for a marathon session of gluing, cutting, coloring and creating. For those of you who wished it could be you, then this may be your lucky day! Read on! (You can skip to the bottom where the details are if you’re in a hurry!)

It worked out that a few people came on Saturday and then a few more came on Sunday. In the picture below you can see Becky, Lana and Katie hard at work. Becky and Lana made cards, while Katie used the X-Acto knife and the circle cutter to create designs she will use on her individually designed t-shirts. She was very happy to have these items to take home. She especially liked the color of X-Acto knife (dark pink.)

Lana made a few different cards including this one for her best friend, Kay (Katie to you and me.)

 Here is Katie using the circle cutter. She loved that it was so easy to use and so easy to adjust settings to cut different size circles.

Below is a sample of one of Katie’s specially designed shirts. Isn’t this awesome! (Twilight fans will recognize this.)

Becky cut the card stock she used in her handmade cards with the new cutter that X-Acto sent with the package. Once we figured out where the blade made the cuts, it was a snap.

Becky made a few different cards. I admired her colored yarn so she shared some with me. What a good friend. Talented too.

Ashley and little Kiera used the foam boards from Elmers to create their individual masterpieces.

 On Sunday, Niki and Lynda got busy. Lynda made a poster and Niki made a card. Niki liked the nice quality of the sculpted scissors.

Me? I like to make cards too, but this time I made a collage. I find I am keeping more bits of scrap and whatnot to make postcards to send to all my postal friends. Loved using the Elmer’s Dot Runner.

    I'd like to win! 🙂 I have a group of 50 local people who love art and craft get-togethers. We'd definitely put all this to good use!

    I would love to win this so I could donate it to my daughter's school. Their art program relies heavily on donations, so this would help a lot. Thanks!!

    It would be so much fun to host a Craft and Tell, I'd love to! Most of my friends are paper crafters and aside from the glue and glue sticks, I had no idea that Elmer's made all of those things.
