Elmer’s CraftBond/ X-Acto Review

Thanks to BzzAgent.com, Elmers, and X-Acto, I was recently able to try out an assortment of crafting supplies. I’ve used several Elmer’s products for years—white glue, glue sticks, and wood glue, but I didn’t realize until now that they also produced scrapbooking supplies. I received a tape runner, glue spots, glue pen, glue stick, a corner rounder punch and decorative edging scissors.

I headed to the Elmer’s website for some craft ideas and decided to make some note cards.  Note: this site has LOTS of great idea for crafts and gifts---Be sure to check it out!

Emily and I cut and snipped and glued. Here are our finished cards:

I was happy with the quality of the Elmer’s and X-Acto products. One of the pairs of decorative scissors seemed to be jammed closed at first, but after opening and closing them several times, they loosened up and worked fine. I’ve never used glue spots before—I found them easy to use and I liked the 3-dimensional effect they gave to my cards. Emily thought the glue pen was “really cool.” She found it perfect for gluing narrow strips of paper and tiny cut-outs.

Elmer’s CraftBond and X-Acto craft supplies are available in the memory keeping aisle at Walmart. Visit elmers.com/crafters or facebook.com/Elmers for more information.

I received these products from BzzAgent and was encouraged to share my opinion about them. I was not required to write a positive review.
