Earth Days means eco-exciting news at Artterro. This week they are introducing new packaging made of 100% recycled cardboard and new bead bags that are biodegradable. The new packaging includes a sturdy outer box with a playful shape, an inner tray that slides out, and a vibrant, glossy band featuring large, detailed project images.
Plus they now have TWO bonus projects: the outer box can turn into a mailbox, birdhouse or special treasure box, and the inner tray can be decorated as a frame for finished art.
First, let me show you a couple of examples that come IN the boxes…though the boxes are fun in themselves!
Canvas Book Kit
Explore your story with fabric art! Combine gorgeous hand-dyed batik and solid cotton fabric with ribbon, beads, and artist quality acrylic paint to illustrate a unique canvas book. Sew or glue fabric shapes onto the 6×8 inch pages. Multiple award winner! Ages 8 and up.
O’Bear loves writing stories so what a unique twist to be able to create a book really using your imagination with just crafty materials. His favorite topic? Dragons. He is always writing stories about dragons so it was only natural that we came up with this cover.
What will come next? Only this little mind knows, but I am excited to find out!
Paint With Wool Kit
This kit is a perfect introduction to the art of needle felting. Very satisfying and easy to do, simply poke colorful roving wool into the base shape with a felting needle to paint pictures of anything you can imagine! No glue or sewing required. Create four 4-inch masterpieces. This eco art kit provides hours of fun with friends & family, and includes a bonus project–the box turns into a frame for your finished artwork! Ages 8 and up.
I have to admit to you that I was a tad nervous about this one, just because I have never seen anything like it and was intimidated. Once I figured it out, I LOVE it. I made that Easter egg. O’Bear saw what I created and instantly tried his hand at it. What a super fun and different craft. I know we will be heading to the store to buy more felt…Artterro has started something here!
Again, the boxes can be turned into two more crafts…whatever your imagine can come up with. Right now the tray is perfect for holding our pretty eggs in and we’re spinning ideas on what to do with the box. More Projects, More Creativity, More Quality Time with my kids!
