I received these items for review from Klutz, all opinions are my own.
My girls absolutely love to do crafts, this year they wanted to make their cousins and teacher some really creative and fun presents for Christmas. The girls were really excited to work with clay in the Klutz Make Glitter Clay Charms Book. They each chose what they wanted to make and Leah made her own while I helped Charlotte! The book comes with instructions for tons of different designs, clay, glitter, glaze and more! The girls loved making charms for their best friends who happen to be their cousins. Leah can’t wait to gift her charm bracelet and Charlotte can’t wait to share her necklace!
“Design your own bracelet with itty-bitty glittery charms! As a follow-up to our beloved bestseller Make Clay Charms, this book comes with 35 new charm designs, new clay colors, and two packets of accent glitter to make your charms sparkle and shine.
Starting with a few basic shapes and easy-to-mold clay, you can sculpt mini food, tiny aliens and robots, pocket-sized unicorns, and dozens of other cuties that you can customize with extra personality. Just pop your creations in the oven to set (with an adult’s help, of course), use our special glaze to give them polish and add as much glitter as you want, then attach them to the included bracelet. Each project has clear instructions and a true-to-life sizing guide to help you craft your own glitter charms.” (Klutz website)
Leah really wanted to make her teacher a card that she could also hang up in her classroom. Leah loved the Pop Collage book that had so many different ideas! She decided to go with the Owl that could be hung up in a frame on her teacher’s wall.
The Pop Collage Book has so many fun ideas and comes with glue, paper, sparkles and more! I love that it gives you a few ideas but you can also use any of your household items! Leah worked on her owl cutout and it turned out great! She had so much fun cutting out the different shapes and finding which papers to use.
“Nothing is cooler than a look that’s unmistakably you. Luckily, when it comes to sprucing up your stuff, Pop Collage has you covered (pun intended). We make collages simple with our crystal-clear instructions and everything you need to get started.
Learn to tear, cut, hole-punch, and layer the included Pop Pages in unexpected ways. It’s a no-mistake, anything-goes activity-chaos encouraged. Tackle the 10 projects included in the book like paper bowls, a bookmark, an owl, an accessory tray, a frame, and more. Then get inspired with ideas from the book so you can make anything pop!” (Klutz Press Release)
Klutz has so many different and fun books! Leah is really excited to bring some of these to her Grandma’s for Christmas so that all of the cousins can make fun items together! These books are perfect for making handmade gifts for Christmas.
The Shrink & Link Jewelry is perfect for ages 10+ or with help from a parent. My girls Love Jewelry and can’t wait to make some with their cousins!
“With more than 2 million Shrink Art Jewelry and Shrinky Dinks books in print, we at Klutz are pretty much shrink plastic experts. But when it’s as easy as tracing, cutting, and baking . . . you can become a shrink art expert too! Even if you’re totally new to this whole shrink art thing, our step-by-step instructions will have your friends admiring your “did-you-really-make-that?!” jewelry in no time.
This is the only book out there that lets you make reusable, transferable, dimensional pendants and attach them to a ring or a necklace. With Shrink and Link Jewelry, you can create brilliant shrink art charms from over 50 traceable designs – and then mix and match them for a limitless wardrobe of unique, colorful jewelry!
Finger Knitting is so much fun especially with the Finger Knitting book from Klutz!
“Cozy knit accessories are right at your fingertips-literally! Make scarves, hats, jewelry, cat ear headbands, boot toppers, and much more with easy instructions for 15 projects. Even if you’ve never knit a stitch before, you’ll be amazed by what you can make without needles. And with 200 yards of metallic-sparkle yarn right in the box, you can whip up 2 extra-large scarves or several smaller projects.
How do you finger knit? Simply weave the yarn back and forth between your fingers, and then pick up the loops. Really, it’s that easy! When you’re ready to take a break, use the handy stitch holder until it’s time to continue. Then braid, fold, wrap, or tie your finger-knit chains into cool creations, such as a flower-embellished scarf, a beaded necklace, or a boho-style fringe. Everything you need comes with the book (fingertips not included).” (Klutz Press Release)
“String art used to be just for squares (and triangles and other geometric shapes), but our new string art system opens up a whole new world of possibilities. From cute critters to fashionable flowers to trendy typography, kids can make everything in the book after learning just three simple methods.
The final results may look intricate, but we include an only-from-Klutz pin-pushing tool so even a string-art newbie can create awesome art with this classic craft. And our pin-pusher solves string art’s prickliest problems by making sure that every pin goes in straight and at the same height. With instructions for 20 projects and enough materials for six, kids will be making amazing art in no time.” (Klutz Press Release)
All of these books are perfect for giving or making Handmade Christmas Gifts!
