CREATING A CRAFT KIT FOR BEGINNERS



Getting started in craft and want to assemble a craft kit with all of the essentials? or looking to create a crafty gift for someone?


Here are the bits I think you are going to be reaching for time and time again, that you cant start crafting without.

CUTTING:

Scissors:

A good pair of scissors is a must-have, be sure to look after them and only use them for paper and card. Try to avoid cutting anything sticky with them!

Craft Knife:

A craft knife is great for lots of craft projects, papercutting is a great craft to get into, but you will also find a knife handy for some parts of scrapbooking and card making.

GLUE:

Glue gun:

Get a glue gun! You can pick one up for around £5 and glue sticks for it, for only a few pounds.

I use a glue gun for anything and everything that I possibly can, The heat of the glue means it can stick most materials together with ease and speed.

Pritt stick:

The old favourite, perfect for glueing card and paper projects, I always buy the smaller sticks to avoid the stick drying up.

Tape roller:

The papercrafters secret weapon, this rolls a thin strip of adhesive onto card and paper projects for mess-free sticking!

PVA/mod podge:

I always have a small pot of PVA with me, it's great for decoupage or for giving a varnished layer to projects.

TAPE:

Washi Tape:

Pretty decorative tape you are going to get addicted to but rarely use!

Masking Tape:

Perfect for doing what it does best, masking an area you are painting or holding something in place without creating any damage!

SOFT CRAFTS:

Pom pom maker:

An absolute must for any crafter, you'll be able to make pom poms faster than you can choose which colour yarn to use!

Pins:

Useful for so many things, I always have some pins and safety pins in my kit.

Needles:

Obviously a must for any embroidery, sewing or even for poking dried glue out of the end of the tube!

PENS:

You will of course want a good set of pens and pencils

Sharpie:

I can't live without a black sharpie, it comes in so handy for so many projects!

Want to do some cut calligraphy or colouring in? Invest in some brush pens!

Gel pens:

Fab for adding a little bit of journaling into a scrapbook page or for writing on coloured Card. also great for transporting you straight back to the '90s!
