Christmas is just around the corner! I decided to do this Christmas Gift Guide that will be geared towards Paper Florists and for those that are struggling with shopping for the Paper Florist in their lives. Here is to my fellow paper florists!
I have come up with 10 MUST HAVES for the Paper Florist in your life, whether they are a novice or an expert.
Let's get started!!
1. Cricut Maker
This is the ultimate machine for all crafters, especially paper florists! This machine has literally changed my life. The Cricut Maker can cut anything from wood to felt!
I use my Cricut Maker to cut intricate designs from flower centers to leaves. It is a huge time saver!
It truly is the backbone for paper florists because without it, you need to rely on steady hands and a sharp pair of scissors.
2. Surebonder Hot Glue Guns
You can never have enough hot glue guns! I for one have a handful of glue guns. Personally, I am partial to Surebonder glue guns for their lightweight and durability. Here are just a few of my favorite glue gun options offered by Surebonder!
This one is the Surebonder H-195F Mini Glue Gun and is PERFECT for small paper flowers. It uses mini glue sticks.
I use this all the time when I'm assembling mini paper roses or flowers. The tip of the glue gun is extended for a more precise application of hot glue. I have not had an issue with it leaking. This is a MUST if you're a paper florist!
The Surebonder PRO2-100 is another glue gun that I use on the regular. This glue gun uses full size hot glue sticks.
This is my go to glue gun when I'm making large paper flowers. I'm talking about flowers that are anywhere from 12 inches up to 22 inches in diameter.
Now, you might be asking yourself, does it leak? NO, it does not!
This glue gun has a really nice handle and super lightweight compared to other glue guns that I have used.
This is a CORDLESS glue gun which is perfect for making paper flowers while watching TV or anywhere!
The battery and charger are included, so it is a great addition to your glue gun collection.
3. Fiskars Bent Titanium Scissors
My FAVORITE scissors! This is the Fiskars Bent Titanium scissors and I started using them in March and they have not failed me YET. I have been through so many scissors but this one can cut up to 5 pages of 65lb cardstock paper at a time!
4. Fiskars 15x18 Silicone Craft Mat
I have used this Silicone Mat for over a year now and let me tell you that it is SO GREAT when making paper flowers.
