I recently had the opportunity to try out a bunch of craft supplies from EKSuccess Tools. I was very familiar with the brand because I already owned a paper punch from them and I totally loved it!
Inside my box of loot was a circle punch, decorative scissors, a border punch, dual tip markers and a bunch of other amazing goodies! I really love how there are project ideas on their packaging. Always needing inspiration to craft, I found it to be a great bonus to their products. Also on their packaging is QR Codes so if you have a smart phone you can scan the codes and get links to tutorials and info about EKSuccess Tools. Very cool!
I’m really blessed to have such wonderful family and friends in my life and I know sometimes I get so busy that it’s easy to forget to tell people how thankful I am for them and how much they mean to me. I decided to create a simple gift that anyone can make to let people in their life know how much we care.
Here’s my supplies:
(as I worked on my project I would up not using some of the supplies shown but adding other ones instead)
I took my plastic container that I picked up for a dollar and cut out a square from scrapbook paper and then trimmed the paper with a decorative scissor. Once I had the exact size I needed I glued it to the bottom so that when the container was empty you could see a pretty design underneath it. I used the bone folder from EKSuccess Tools to smooth out all of the bubbles. That is not what this tool is made for but it worked out great!
Next I took my circle punch and used it to cut out half circles (scallops) by only feeding paper in half way. I made a bunch of them so that I could attach them to the outside of the container. I used the repositionable adhesive dispenser to attach them. Worked perfect since I had to take a few off and fix the spacing. I followed up with attaching ribbon over the scallops also using the adhesive dispenser also. I filled my container with M&M’s (delicious! especially the new candy corn ones!) and created a label for the top that said “I’m Thankful for You” using a paper punch and the gold dual sided marker.
EKSuccess Tools can be found at select Walmarts. That was music to my ears. I love going food shopping at Walmart and slipping in some craft supplies that usually go undetected by the hubs. (wink wink)
