Sakura Sticklers

sakura_sticklers.jpgIn a departure from her usual content, today Carole Arsenault of Newborn Nurses shares the craftastic results of her daughter’s recent test drive of Sakura Sticklers. Read on for her review, as well as to learn how to be one of two winners to receive a Sakura Sticklers gift pack!
“Stickers and crafts are some of my 8-year-old daughter’s favorite activities, but she usually tires of stickers within a relatively short time window. Sakura’s Sticklers activity kit, however, kept her entertained for hours.

Sakura Sticklers kits include gold or silver outline stickers with glaze or soufflé colored ink pens that your child can use to color in the metallic stickers. The stickers are easy and fun to decorate, the pen inks leave a 3D impression, and the metallic colors were such a huge hit that even my 13- and 16-year-old boys wanted in on some of the fun.

Fun for decorating cards, crafts, or personal items, by the end of the weekend our cell phones (4 of them), a Blackberry, camera, home phone, and alarm clock were just a few household items adorned with these cool 3D stickers. My daughter also used the sticklers to make several birthday cards for her friends. I also loved the mess-free nature of this craft project, and that the stickers can be removed easily (as was the case with my husband’s Blackberry).

These Sticklers kits will be great for holiday travel and car rides, and I think they’ll make a perfect birthday gift for some of my daughter’s similarly craft minded friends.”
