4th of July gift basket #craftit

Today I’m going to share with you a quick little 4th of July gift basket I made over the weekend, featuring some of Elmer’s new products. This would be a great craft to get the kids involved with. AND there may just be a VLOG. Don’t laugh… it was late and I was tired. :)

These little tin basket’s are super fun and make the perfect gifts. You can find them in the dollar section at Target or Michaels. The Elmer’s paint pens dress them up quite nicely.

Elmer’s recently launched a new facebook page,  so I was sent some fun products along with a video camera to film this short video for you. I’m sure there will be a few more vlogs over the summer to mix things up a bit. We could a few surprises right? ;)

You can find the patterned tape at Wallmart. There are lots of fun colors and patterns! :) I love Elmers products because you can find them almost anywhere and they make crafting super easy! :)

Have a GREAT day! XO

    I didn’t know Elmer’s made Washi-style tape! I have to run out and get some right now. Thanks for sharing.

    I LOVE that Elmer’s patterned tape. I had no idea that Wal-Mart sold it. I have to go purchase some of that now. Thank you for the heads up. And, your little 4th of July tin is super adorable too. ; ) Those cookies look extra yummy.

    I was curious where might I find that tape in Walmart. Our walmart redid everything- and we don’t have much of a craft dept anymore. Would it be in the office supplies? Cute cute tape. I definitely want some!!

      Hi Margie! I believe it would be right by the Elmers glue in the scrap booking supplies. Hope that helps!
