Our each is a set of (8) sturdy plain white heart-shaped jigsaw puzzles, along with envelopes to mail the pieces in. You paint or draw on the blanks (think Valentines, invitations, or general lovey stuff), snap them apart and send the pieces to someone you really like. Hearts are approx 5-1/2” across on 6” x 8” cardboards.
(Not to be confused with the Lovely Hughs, a '50s doo-wop group from Philadelphia.) These are gels, actually, for low-wattage lighting applications, but for your purposes they're probably just 8" x 10" sheets of colored acetate in lovely hues just waiting for crafty applications. You get (6) sheets, one each in yellow, magenta, blue, real red, deep green and indigo.
Put a little major-league glam in your printer with our heavy, sparkly,
silvery, glittery paper that displays rainbow hues when moved. No loose
glitter to gum up your printer, of course. The sheet measures 8-1/2" x
11" x .007" thick and works in both ink-jet and laser printers. Perfect
for attention-grabbing signs, photo mats, those extra-fab memos, or
wrapping up Ziggy Stardust CDs.
Nostalgia, and presentations, are better when you put the pics in clear vinyl sleeves. You get (2) packs of (18) sleeves, 8-1/2" x 6-3/4" split in two to hold up to (4) 4-1/8" x 6" pics, with (3) binder holes.
Is that a cup of little lemon jelly beans? And lime? Orange? Light red? A bowl of burgundy-colored baked bean candies? Definitely not, no matter how sweet they look! Those are colored, scented wax shapes to be melted down to create candles. Each color is packed in 4-oz bags of approx (100) pieces. Each package contains (3) bags, (3) different colors (our choice). Enticing shapes and colors. Keep the kids away from them!
It's princess time. You get a quartet of 4-1/2" dia (pre-stretch) rainbow-colored double elastic bands with a capital letter bedazzled in rhinestones in a 7/8" circle. You'll get (4) different letters, so one of them is bound to match a local princess.
Return with me now to the Summer of Love when the girls wore flowers in their hair and everyone had a piece of twine around their wrists. We'll pick (20) authentic twine bracelets approx 12" long, and if you're lucky you just might get one with an actual painted bead woven into it.
Use it as a stencil, hang it on a wall or
from a string, or put it in front of a black light, which is what these
die-cut acrylic figures were meant for since they're UV reactive. Nice
for classrooms, craft projects, lighting fixtures, whatever. The cat
figure is approx 8" across x 7-1/4" tall plus a 1" mounting tab. It's
almost clear, except for a slight bluish tint. The dog is amber, 8"
across x 5-3/4" tall plus a 3/8" tab. The jumping dolphin is 7-1/2" long
x approx 4" OA, and bluish-clear. Behind its tailfin is a separate 4"
dia red ball with a 3/8" mounting tab. The fish skeleton is neon green,
approx 5" wide x 9-3/4" long, plus a 1/2" mounting tab. All are 3/32" thick with a
Numberetti? What else would you toss on people's heads at a Fiscal New Year's Eve party, but confetti made from punched out numbers?!? And letteretti? When she's finally published, what's better than letter confetti?!? The tissue-paper letters and numbers, in assorted colors and approx 1-3/4" high, are also a nice touch at graduation parties for accounting or journalism majors! Each bag holds a couple of good handfuls, and you get two bags of each kind.
