What I Craft With: Products that I use for my Etsy Shop

Hello and welcome back! For the past few month, I have been creating custom tumblers and selling them! I have been obsessed and also have been purchasing a ton of supplies. Today I want to share all of the products that I use daily for my Etsy Shop.

The main tool that I use is my Cricut Explore Air 2 in Emerald. This machine is badass and cuts like no other. The system comes with different templets that make it easy when creating a project. Right now the Cricut Explore Air 2 is on sale if you have really been wanting to get your hands on it! You can find the link here. I use mine everyday and let me tell you, I have made my money back on this machine, plus more.

My next tools that I use daily are the Nicapa basic tool set. They help so much when weeding vinyl, scrapping card stock from my mats, and applying vinyl to cups.

Another essential for a vinyl based craft is transfer tape. I picked up a large roll from Amazon and so far it’s the best that I have tried.

I can’t forget to mention scissors! I use them for just about everything, cutting the transfer tape, cutting ribbon, and the other obvious reasons for owning a pair of scissors. You can check out these good ones here.

They vinyl that I use I also purchased from Amazon. I use a holographic vinyl and a regular vinyl. The matte colored vinyl is a little bit harder to weed, but still turns out gorgeous.

And there you have it people! Those are my everyday, basic tools. I just added a new piece to my collection, so I’ll have to update you in a blog post very soon! I hope that you enjoyed.

Let me know which tools that you can’t live without, I would love to try them.

DIY Summer Wreath

Hello there! I know that you seen DIY in the title and just had to stop by! Summer is right around the corner, that means that it is time to decorate for summer! Today I made this cute little summer wreath and thought that I would share it with you. It is super simple and cost me less than $5 to make it.

To make this wreath you are going to need:

  • hula hoop (whatever size that you want) 
  • hot glue gun and glue sticks
  • twine 
  • flowers of your choice
  • bow is optional

 

This project is very simple, but very time consuming. All I did to create this wreath is hot glue the twine around the hula hoop until the coop was completely covered. I made sure that that when I was gluing the twine down, I pulled it tight and close together.

Next I hot glued my flowers in place and All done!

Feel free to add a bow, I was going to at first and then decided that I liked it better without one.

Happy Crafting!
