Here at Partygirl we know we are nothing without our essentials. Some of our best DIY's and party tricks are done on an "As-We-Dream-It-Up" basis. AKA.... on the fly. To make this happen we always have a PartyGirl tool box full of tricks that is ready at any moment and we think you should too. Our favorite essentials store is Michael's but any craft or paper source store will have what you need. Here are a few essentials to get you started!
Tool Box: Essential for obvious reasons. We love that it's fairly small and can be stored anywhere without taking up tons of room. It holds a ton of stuff and can be painted (or glittered) easily if wanted.
Glue Gun: Probably the most important thing in the entire PartyGirl tool box. It's small and compact so you can carry with you to events for touch ups on the fly. It's quick and very effective.
Scissors: No explanation necessary. You'll always need them!
Glitter: It's like having sugar in your kitchen... it can spruce up anything and the same can be said for a little glitter. It just always comes in handy.
Tape Measure: We love this small little guy because it's easy to keep in your kit or throw in your bag without taking up much room.
Modge Podge: The BEST for glittering pretty much anything. Learn to love it!
Foam brushes: the best for Modge Podge-ing anything. Also great for painting as well. They clean out quick and are super cheap so you can always have a bunch on hand.
Sharpie Marker: Labels, Gift cards, Posters.... we could go on for days.
Exacto Knife: For tearing boxes open, crafting and for when your scissors just won't cut it.
Scotch Tape: Because it's also just a life essential.
Ribbon and Bows: You never know when you'll need to do a quick gift wrap or pull together a dinner party in record time.
E6000: When you have a little more time for drying and need a stronger hold than a glue gun this is your answer!
A bottle of paint: Our wild card item. We love a metallic Martha Stewart paint for making things sparkle just a little more if needed. You probably have a wild card essential too!
