Elmer's Craft and Tell mini Party Pack (Giveaway)

Like some of you, I have a distinct memory of sitting in my preschool class and making a conscious decision to sample the glue that my peers seemed to enjoy snacking on. (Don't lie, you know you tried it too)

Thankfully, I deemed the glue much better when used for crafting purposes, and tasted it just the once. The glue in question?

Elmer's! Everyone knows that famous white bottle with the orange and blue label!
When a rep from Elmer's contacted me to see if I'd be interested in hosting a craft night (Craft and Tell!), I thought it sounded like a lot of fun. I expected the box to contain a couple of the good old fashioned glue bottles we all know and love, and maybe a few glue sticks thrown in for good measure.

Imagine how delighted I was when this ginormous box arrived at my front door!























I thought it was so cool that the company name was cut into the side of the box...until the girls spotted the bottle of glue cut into the end:


"Wow, that's gonna be a lot of glue sticks," I thought.

I got the surprise of my life when I opened up that box and spotted all the goodies inside!
























I had no idea Elmer's had so many neat products beyond glue: foam boards for craft and school projects, paint markers, tape runners, circle cutters, paper trimmers, spray adhesive, and more.

My Craft and Tell party is scheduled for this tomorrow night, and I am just giddy with excitement! I've been spray painting, organizing, CLEANING, and baking to get ready.

And guess what?

Elmer's thought it would be fun for me to get my readers involved so they are giving away TWO FREE MINI PARTY PACKS! (Two readers will each receive one)

Now you can host your own girls' craft night!

Your party pack will include (not all items pictured):






















  • 3 X-Acto Retract-a-Blade Knives
  • 3 Craft Bond Extra Strength Glue Sticks
  • 3 Craft Bond Tape Runners
  • 3 Mini Bi-fold 9 x12 Foam Board packs
  • 1 Painters Markers pack
  • 1 X-Acto Decorative Edge Scissors pack
  • 1 Circle Cutter
  • 1 X-Acto Self Healing Mat
  • 1 Glue Dots pack
  • 2 Photo Corners packs (various colors)
  • 1 Gel Pens pack
  • 1 Tacky Glue Bottle
So, seriously, whether you are crafty or just want to be, Elmer's is making it easy for you guys!

I'm leaving the Giveaway (U.S. residents only, please) open until Sunday night at 10 pm (ET), and I'll be sure to recap my Craft and Tell party next week!
