10 Craft Supplies I Can’t Live Without

My funny friend Kimbo from A Girl and a Glue Gun is celebrating her birthday this week.  I’ve joined in with 38 other bloggers to bring you a HUGE craft supplies giveaway.  Before you see what we chose, I wanted to share the top 10 Craft Supplies I Can’t Live Without!  Some of them are very inexpensive and there’s one that is more of an investment…   Check out my favorites and then enter below:

Top 10 Craft Supplies I Can't Live Without

  • Laminator — yes, this a craft supply.  I use it for all kinds of printables and projects.  You can read more about why I’m obsessed with my laminator and why you should be too.
  • Crayons –  not sure what it is, but yes I love crayons.
  • Scissors – probably the most universal crafting tool ever.
  • Sewing scissors –  the nicest scissors I’ve ever known.  A must have for anything with fabric.
  • Mini Glue gun –  I use this for almost every project.
  • Paper trimmer-   I like the heavy duty kind.  But I have several versions.  The small ones come in handy when traveling.
  • Cricut Explore –  I fell in love with the new Cricut machine at it’s launch earlier this year.  I’ve loved creating with it ever since.  This canvas is one of my favorite projects.
  • Glue dots –  I use these often to adhere things.
  • Baker’s twine – I add this to most of my printable gifts.
  • Circle punches  – Useful for printables, buttons, etc.

Hi- I'm Mique (as in Mickey). I started 30days as an idea file a few years ago. After three years and hundreds of ideas, I now realize that I'll never check them all off my list. When I'm not creating, I love spending time with family and friends and long drives, especially if they end at the beach.

    Paper clay and fabric. Or paint? So difficult to choose a favorite, and I’m busy right now trying to organize all my assorted, eclectic supplies.

    My favorite craft supply would have to be glitter. As a daycare teacher you can never have enough glitter.

    I must admit, if there were a hoarding show for craft supplies, I would probably be on it. This giveaway is AWESOME! Thanks for the opportunity!
