A good pair of Scissors
Let us start with a tried and trusted favourite, because when it comes to their usefulness, without a good pair, (or pairs) of scissors you’re not going to get very far. Almost every craft project would require them at some point. A pair of scissors whether straight edged, serrated or the scalloped kind is key in every sewing or paper crafting project.
Crafters know having a flat, even surface to lay materials out is a given. Having a crafting, or cutting mat is the ideal way to achieve this.
Pens, pencils, crayons, gel pens, and markers art supplies. Anything that you need in order to make notes, write down instructions or sketch out designs. A good supply of high-quality stationery is must for so many papercraft projects.
A glue gun is ideal for use in a wide range of crafting projects. Heated glue guns with hot melt glue sticks are the perfect tool for handmade projects involving card, wood, ceramics, fabric or textiles.
A craft box of delight
