  12. Jessie C. Says:

    Series X-ACTO blade, Recycled Scissors by X-ACTO and Shapes Template are my top three choices.

  13. terry Says:

    I use a craft blade for many different media and would love blades that lasted longer and were sharper so my first choice to try would be the Z series exacto blades. And since I travel with my tools, the exacto cutter with retractable blades would be great. Those paint pens sound like they would be great for mixed media work for adding pops of color atop of other things since they are opaque.

  14. miriam Says:

    i use elmers glue & glue stick all the time, i wish i could get more of the elmers glitter glue and the paint pens have been a great help!

  15. Claudia Says:

    Oh how I love Scissors. And the re-cycled Scissors by X-acto are one of my three choices. The other two are Elmers Craft App. Wow, very useful and the X-acto designer swivel blade. Handy to have it swivel.

  16. JOAN SMITH Says:

    I really love the Mother’s Day card made with Elmer’s Brands, Kraft Bond Multi Purpose Spray Adhesive and the X-Acto Designer Swive Blade

    Thanks for putting all these reviews in one place. My favorites are the Painters, spray adhesive and app. I am a big fan of the Painters. I use them on pellon to create flannel board pieces for children’s story times. The colors are so vibrant and child friendly. I’ve also used the spray adhesive on a number of projects and it’s super strong and does the job well. Lastly, I found the app review very helpful and will be recommending this to others.

  47. gil Says:

    Recycled scissors,X-acto swivel blade and the X-acto shape templates.Thank-you

  48. Charlotte Zweigoron Says:

    O.K. Here goes…. (and I actually got some info that will put a couple of these items on my craft shopping list ASAP.
    1… The new exacto-knife with the super sharp blade
    2… The Spray adhesive (I actually have some but wasn’t totally sure how to use it or what would be necessary to catch the overspray. I had though a box would be best but didn’t think I could angle the can most effectively. Also, I have been using my big Xeron to put adhesive on the back of items and the refills are very expensive and I’ve had a lot of problems with the glue part doubling over on itself or leaving empty patches… hence my desire to give the spray a try.)
    3… The Elmer’s App. I’m one of those people standing in the aisle reading labels and price tags and working myself into a panic attack trying to find what I need. If this thing is dependable as far as recommendations are concerned, it would be a real boon1

  49. Rebecca Bodine Says:

    1. I’d choose the craft and tell, because it seems like it would be so neat to get a bunch of like minded people together and show them the product; 2 I’d choose the markers; I’ve used the white one and it works really well, so I figure the others do too; and 3 I’d take the exacto 5 series because I use exacto knives so much that I’m always having to replace the blades. Thanks
    Becca

  50. Carmen Lucero Says:

    I really like the Elmer’s App – easy to find the right glue. I use Exacto knives all the time and always need more, and Spray adhesive!

    Thanks for the chance,

  53. Niki Schmidt Says:

    I don’t know how I’ve crafted this long with an Exacto knife – it was already on my Christmas list before I saw this post (I better be getting the set from my husband this year.)

  72. ArcyEm Says:

    Once upon a time I made a very good living doing graphic design and ad production and Xacto blades were an absolute necessity – I would buy them in bulk! I would have loved to have had the swivel blade and Z-series would have been great for using a lot less blades. I’m going to suggest the Painters Markers to my daughter who paints on glass.

  76. Tyler Brown Says:

    I love the X-Acto Z Series, I’ve had to use it several times in college doing design. Recycled scissors sounds like a novel idea, and friendly to the environment. The craft bond is a better alternative to the glue when you want stuff to stick but don’t want to have that “glued on” look.

  77. Sheila A Says:

    i love the Elmer’s Painters Paint Markers. It so easy for my daughter to use and less mess for me lol The Elmer’s Craft Bond looks like a great way to larger surfaces..never used it and will have to give it a go!
