Hey, crafty friends! It’s Taylor here again with our second kit introduction of the day! Yep – two kits in one day, but this one’s for the kids (or the kids at heart!). As you’ll see in the video below, my own junior crafters had lots of fun creating button-filled cards with the Buttoned Up Kids Kit! They’d love to hear from you so if you have a minute to leave a comment I’ll be sharing the comments with them after school. 😉
Note: as I said above, we have two kits launching today. To see the Butterfly Wishes Kit, CLICK HERE.
Here’s everything in the Buttoned Up Kids Kit that retails for $25:
- 12 A2 sized cardbases (2 each of: Cherry Pop, Lollipop, Candy Corn, Lemon Meringue, Blueberry, Cookie Monster)
- 12 custom envelope seals
- 12 pre-printed A2 card layers (3 each of 4 designs)
- 12 Sugar Cube A2 envelopes
- Approximately 2 oz of buttons
- 1 glue stick
- 175 glue dots
- 1 plastic storage case with a sticker
The Clearly Crafty Hip Hip Hooray stamp set (sold separately) is designed to coordinate with the All Buttoned Up Kids Kit. There are 8 sentiments in the set to send a thank you, celebrate birthdays, and more along with several smaller star and heart images to accent the sentiments and/or add patterns to projects.
It was determined during the creation of these cards that for children under the age of 10, MORE IS MORE. *smile* I had to stop my girls from adding *all* the buttons to one card! Charlee would want me to point out that she cleverly drew lines on her hot air balloon basket (top right) and Madi would want me to tell you that her red and blue balloon bouquet (bottom left) is for her teacher who loves the Chicago Cubs. Check out the fun that was had in their quick video below:
If you have a crafty kid in your life, this kit makes for a fun weekend project! Just add ink and an acrylic block to stamp the sentiments and the kit has everything else you need! Several of the cards and sentiments in the Hip Hip Hooray clear stamp set (sold separately) are designed to be used for year-end teacher thank you cards. Get a jump start on those or if you’re crafting with a grandchild, think about creating a Mother’s Day card for mom!
Madi and Charlee would love to get to know your junior crafters so head on over to our Fans of Taylored Expressions page on Facebook and share a photo of your kid crafter in action!
In addition to Madi and Charlee, we had a few other special guests join us to craft with the Buttoned Up Kids Kit. Check out what they created!
Emily Mydlowski‘s daughter rocked out with her headphones while crafting a pile of cards with the Buttoned Up Kids Kit. She used markers to color the images and coordinated her buttons that she added to match – I love her rainbow flower line up! The cardstock circles added to the hot air balloon cards is ingenious and I love the patterns she stamped on the cards using the smaller images from the Hip Hip Hooray stamp set!
Jill Hawkin‘s son got into adding lots of buttons to his balloon cards and I love how they remind me of a certain Disney movie! Her son, however, was not into adding the buttons to the flower cards. “Flowers do NOT have buttons…” Well, I think they turned out cute, just the same! The sentiments are stamped onto the cards with Oreo ink using Hip Hip Hooray stamp set and I heard that Jill’s son couldn’t wait to give one of his cards to his teacher and has already delivered it!
These two cuties are daughters of a friend of Heather Nichols. Heather thought they would have fun crafting with the new Buttoned Up Kids Kit and judging by the photos it looks like Ailsa and Maren had a great time! They did an awesome job creating cards to give to their teachers. Ailsa and Maren’s mom said that this was a really good project for them and that the kit gave just enough creativity while still having to following directions to make the cards. She is thrilled to have teacher thank you cards completed!
Natasha Valkovskaya had her niece create with the Buttoned Up Kids Kit. She loved creating the cards with the kit and was so excited to take pictures and share her cute projects! I love all of the colors that she used on her flower cards and that pink hot air balloon just makes me smile. I know these cards will definitely bring joy to whomever receives them!
Today, I’ll be unboxing the new kits during “T Time” at 1PM Central Time on the Taylored Expressions Facebook Page and would love to have you join me! If you miss the live broadcast, it will be available to view afterward. I hope to see you there!
