My ‘2018 CRAFTERS CHRISTMAS GIFT IDEAS‘ gift guide is here! I’ve collected ALL the tools/machines/supplies you need to get the crafter in your life. Or if you’re a crafter yourself, strap in because here is a list of ALL the things you’ll secretly want to get yourself for the holidays.
WHAT TO GET A CRAFTER FOR CHRISTMAS
It’s no secret that the Cricut Maker is my FAVORITE crafting tool on the planet. I use it everyday and I promise you that you need one. It will change your life! It cuts: paper, felt, fabric, wood, vinyl, iron-on. You name it…it cuts it.
I’ve used my Maker to: make Sprinkle Napkins, make Back To School Door Decor, Pumpkin Party Favors, make Birthday Party Decor, and Backdrops.
The Cricut Scoring Wheel came out earlier this year and I LOVE IT! As a major paper crafter, this tool is sent from the heavens. I used it to make these Paper Christmas Trees a few weeks ago and I was blown away and how perfectly it scored my trees. GAME CHANGER people….GAME CHANGER.
The EasyPress 2 also came out recently and I have one in EVERY SIZE! It’s like a heat press on steroids, but a more convenient size, shape and functionality.
Here’s what I’ve made with my EasyPresses: Embroidery Hoop Craft Tutorial, DIY Sprinkle Napkins, DIY RAINBOW T-SHIRT and DIY Teacher Tote Bag.
I’ve had this baby Paper Trimmer FOR YEARS. Like years and years. I think it was my first crafting tool ever. It still works like a champ and I LOVE it. I use it every Sunday as I cut out handouts for church in bulk. Oh baby…this thing cuts like a dream.
I actually don’t have this collection of Rainbow Washi Tape, but it’s on my Christmas list. Can you have too many Washi Tapes? Nope. I don’t think so.
I received these PowerCut Easy Action Snips from Fiskars earlier this year and WHOA! These babies cut all the hardcore things: wire, leather, cork, burlap, felt, chipboard. I want a pairs for EVERY drawer and purse in my house.
Oh man. This machine. I’ve been watching and reading about it ALL YEAR LONG. The Glowforge Plus might just be the new EVERYTHING in the crafting world. It’s a lazer cutter that cuts dozen of materials! Precise to a thousandth of an inch, and the laser can focus to the width of a human hair. Carve up to 1/2″ deep and print at over 1,300 lines per inch. The Glowforge Plus makes it easy to engrave or print beautiful and useful products with wood, leather, paper, fabric, acrylic, glass, metal, cardboard… even chocolate. I want one of these desperately.
I don’t know a crafter that doesn’t love a good set of Brush Lettering Pens. I’ve been using this brand for years and LOVE them. They are affordable, but write perfectly.
This is another thing on my Christmas List. I’ve been wanting a HUGE collection of Felt Balls for years. This collection on Amazon is affordable and comes in SO many colors.
Here’s another crafter’s staple. I’ve been using this Glue Gun for years and it runs like a champ and for $12 why not go for it!
Another fabulous Cricut product that hit the market this year. The TrueControl Knife is baller. It’s great for the projects that you need precision for, but don’t want to pull out your Maker for.
I’ve been eying this Brother Sewing & Quilting Machine for a few years. The price is ridiculous for a quilting machine and the reviews are great.
Love this stuff! I use it for ALL my paper crafting projects. Tombow always nails it with their adhesives.
