I was overjoyed when Stephanie from The Kit Place contacted me to host a Review/Giveaway for her amazing crafty kits. I am but a bored housewife most of the time so a change in my routine and a chance to do something hands on sounded very appealing. I could barely contain myself when I recieved this Garden of Flowers craft kit in the mail. Probably so much so that I didn’t take the proper care in making sure the paint was secure before getting busy (My kitten and I both learned a valuable lesson and he got his first bath).
Anywho, the first thing I noticed upon opening my The Kit Place box was how wonderfully everything was packaged and just how generous these kits truly were. I don’t often make a habit of saving the wrapping from packages but the ribbon on my kit was amazing and I carefully removed it and stashed it away. In my kit was enough craft material to fully customize my flowers and plenty of paint that I was able to mix colors which I loved, I haven’t mixed paint since art class in high school. What fun! The craft materials in this kit were not only plentiful but also really good quality. I was shocked at how cute the flower cutouts were and the brush that was included is a wonderful paint brush that I am definitly going to be reusing. This Garden of Flowers Kit came with the following items: pots, acrylic paint, stencils, paper and patterns for various flowers, stem wire, and ideas for making flowers and pots.
One of the suggestions for ideas for this kit was to put cupcakes inside the pot which I thought was a wonderful idea. I think this kit would be just wonderful for a childs birthday party craft idea or simply to purchase for a gift or rainy day. I know when I was a younger girl I would have loved to recieve one of these. I remember being obsessed with Lisa Frank Art Kits and they were not nearly as neat as this kit. It makes me wish I knew a little girl to gift one of these to, I’m thinking my sister she is twelve but I think even pre-teens would enjoy customizing this kit and using it as decoration in their bedrooms.
The Kit Place offers many other amazing kits for the ultimate in handmade products, stuff you make on your own. Another of the kits I had my eye on is The Pirate Hunt Kit (because I love pirates hehe). The Pirate Hunt Kit would be so great for a little boy! It includes materials to make your own pirate costume and supplies to create a treasure hunt of your very own. I think the thing that appeals to me the most on this kit is that it includes stencils to make your own iron on transfers which would be great for a party. Speaking of party, The Kit Place offers amazing pricing on kits for 8 guests to make these crafts. This makes party planning really easy, you couldn’t buy party favors, games, and prizes for what these costs and your guests will have something memorable to take with them. Why did they not make things like this when I was younger?
So what if you don’t have little kids? Well The Kit Place offers amazing gift kits including the Wedding Stress Kit which is less of a craft kit and more of a lifesaver. This kit comes complete with: A First Aid Kit, Packing List, Advil, Hem Tape, Packing List, Sewing Kit, Tide To Go stick, Mints, Toothpaste and a Toothbrush. A great bridal shower gift if I do say so myself. Or how about the College 101 Kit that has many essentials for the soon to be big man (or lady) on campus. I really love the idea behind these two kits!
