Giveaway #1: Tidy Trays – CLOSED

Hello Amazing Crap Makers!

I found and fell in love with The Crap I’ve Made very recently when my sister in law sent me the link. I have linked from blog to blog taking on different craft ideas that seem fun to me. I have recently started blogging at my attempts at the crafts I have found and other ideas I come up with on my own or around the internet. I work for our family owned business New Phase Inc. the makers of Tidy Craft, craft, sewing and fly fishing organization products. We have an ebay store where you can see our products

I am happy to offer a set of Tidy Trays to celebrate the success of The Crap I’ve Made.

Here is what you will get:


Our Combo Trays-No more glitter or powders ending up all over the table or floor. This no spill funnel tray is designed to control craft media…glitter, powders, beads, colored sand, and more.

Controls the media during use, then just hold the funnel end of the tray back over its original container (or one of our shuttle cups) and watch the material glide easily back into it – safety and neatly-no waste-no mess.

Durable, high impact styrene 10”x16”x1” purple tray and 6″ x 10.1″ pink tray. Both trays come with a convenient plug for the funnel.

Brush and glitter not included (Hint for ease of use: wipe down with a dryer sheet before using for glitter and powders, it helps to reduce the static and allows them to funnel out easier)

Please follow and like us:
