Product: Elmer’s CraftBond Adhesives and X-ACTO cutting tools

Elmer’s All-Purpose Glue Stick, Permanent Tape Runner, Clear Glue Pen, and sticky spots (range in price from $2 – $9)

X-ACTO Designer Series: Zig Zag Decorative Edge Scissors, Scalloped Edge Decorative Edge Scissors, Corner Rounder Punch (Products in the entire Designer Series range in price from $2 – $20.)

About: Elmer’s adhesives are acid-free and archival safe – the perfect adhesive for those projects you want to last! They are available in a variety of sizes and formulas, and each product is designed for easy use and top performance. X-ACTO Designer Series products are a new spin on traditional crafting tools – so you can craft with precision and style!

Pros: Wow! These are fantastic crafting products! I recently got married and we’re a DIY kinda couple, so we made invitations, favor tags, signs, rsvp cards, and tons more! I wish I had these crafting items then! It would’ve made my life (and the hubby’s!) a lot easier. I had no idea that X-ACTO had decorative edge scissors – I just assumed they only had straight edge razors. But they actually have an entire line of crafting products!

Cons: I wasn’t super impressed with the Corner Rounder Punch. It didn’t work on plain paper. It worked fine with the cardstock, but it was kind of tough to punch, so this was my least favorite tool

Learn More: Check out the memory keeping aisle of Walmart where you can find the new collection of essential crafting products from Elmer’s CraftBond and X-Acto.

Elmer’s Crafters website offers information about products as well as tips, techniques and crafting projects.

X-ACTO‘s website offers an overview of all their products.

Disclosure: I was provided with a complimentary sample pack of Elmer’s CraftBond Adhesives and X-ACTO cutting tools. This sample was provided by BuzzAgent. This is not a paid post and my opinions are honest and remain my own.
