Win-It Wednesday: KLUTZ Glossy Bands Book (5 Winners!)

by Tara Kuczykowski on June 30, 2010 · 377 comments

Join me every week for Win-It Wednesday. I’ll be posting 24-hour giveaways at 8 a.m., 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. ET to give you plenty of chances to win!

Klutz Glossy Bands

Looking for a fun, summer project to do with the kids? KLUTZ books always have some great options, like this new KLUTZ Glossy Bands book. The Klutz Glossy Bands book comes with everything you need to create beautiful, stretchy bracelets to share with your friends. Plus you can tailor the designs to your child's skill level -- from a simple two-color dot bracelet to a more complicated four-color flower bracelet.

If your child is into the Silly Bandz craze, he or she is sure to love making Glossy Bands! The book comes with enough gel to make 14 bracelets, so this should provide several rainy days' worth of fun. Though it's not demonstrated in the book, they also mention that you can make rings using the same techniques, so I'd imagine you could stretch it even further this way.

Five lucky Deal Seeking Mom readers will each win a copy of the Klutz Glossy Bands book with 4 colors of gel, clear plastic work surface, swirling sticks, and Klutz clear instructions for tons of bracelet designs!

To enter, tell me what your favorite craft was as a kid.

I used to love Shrinky Dinks and now my kids love them. I used to punch holes in them and make bracelets and necklaces, and also key rings for my parents. I loved making them! :-)

Klutz kits are fantastic...we've had many around our house. This kit looks like a lot of fun - I may have to join in!

I loved pottery when I was little. My kids mostly love to color or paint with found objects or interesting markers like dot markers or roller markers.

My favorite craft was making necklaces with seed beads. I would make them and then give them away. And I don't do it often, but I like crafting with beads now.
Thanks for your site!

I was never a crafty kid, I have to admit. I didn't like crafts. My daughter loves any kind of paper, drawing, or coloring craft.

As a kid we loved making paper crafts - especially cootie catchers/oragami type projects. My kids love all crafts but I think the best are the ones they can make and pass on to friends like friendship bracelets, necklaces etc.

Thank goodness for Klutz books and their wonderful ideas, instructions and materials. We use their books often and this would be a wonderful addition to our collection.

As a kid, I loved cross stitch and latch hook, both "crafts" I learned from my grandma. I'm hoping some day my 5 month old will enjoy crafts
