Stamp and Cut Shrink Sheets
It’s a blast from the past with a new-and-improved twist! Our Simon exclusive Stamp and Cut Shrink Sheets allow you to make your very own embellishments that are reminiscent to “Shrinky Dinks”. These sheets are able to be die cut, stamped on, colored with markers and pencils, or covered in mediums like alcohol ink and glitter…the creative possibilities are endless!
Fine Detail Scissors
Your shearly going to LOVE our Simon exclusive Fine Detail Scissors for all your crafty projects! These small scissors have an ultra-sharp tip that is perfect for fussy cutting and getting into tight spaces. The blades feature a non-stick coating that allows you to use these with adhesives and other mediums; if you get them messy, you’ll have no trouble getting them clean. The teal color coordinates beautifully with all of our other Simon branded tools, making them a cohesive addition to your crafty stash!
Just when you thought you had all the adhesives you’d ever need, we have a special collection of Tear-rific Tapes that are a must-have! The tape comes in 1/4”, 1/8” rolls, or 8.5”x11” sheets, ensuring you have the right type no matter what creative project you’re working on! As the name suggests, the adhesive has a paper backing (instead of plastic) that allows you to actually tear the tape off as you need it (though you can always use scissors if you prefer)! Use the rolls for quick strips of adhesive or the sheets for large coverage areas, making DIY stickers, and more!
I hope these tips have helped you learn a few tricks for your upcoming crafting projects… Thanks for tuning in today and spending some time with me!
