Craft Tips from Ucreate

I love Ucreate's blog! Here are some Craft Tips that were recently posted......

  • Use a cookie sheet w/ newspaper or wax paper for a portable craft surface…super easy cleanup!
  • Sharpen your scissors by cutting sand paper.
  • Place a little bit of Vaseline to the end of your glue gun to get rid of those long glue strings.
  • Soak your paint brushes in fabric softener or hair conditioner for 10 min…cleans right off!
  • Recycle large plastic lids by using them for a painter’s pallette or cutting them up for stencils.
  • Need to create a large pattern? Use newspapers!
  • Keeping a magnet close by makes picking up those sewing pins a sinch!
  • Store those pipe cleaners for kid’s crafts inside of a paper towel tubes.
  • Break up some styrofoam to create snow for craft projects.
  • Keep those cardboard boxes! Cut & cover with patterned paper to make a mini album, cover with art paper and use as a canvas, and I always use them to eliminate a mess while spraypainting!
