Klutz Glossy Bands Book Giveaway

It's no surprise that we love Klutz. We have had several of their books offered as giveaways on our site and today we have yet another one for you!

The new book is called Glossy Bands and they have a great description of it:
"Chances are good that you’ve never seen anything quite like a Glossy Band. Simply take our special, non-toxic, acrylic gel and squeeze out dots of color following the patterns in our book. Then use the swirling stick to make fancy designs. Once the bracelet is dry, wrap it around your wrist, and you’ve made your first Glossy Band: a beautiful, durable, completely wearable piece of art. Glossy Bands comes with 4 colors of gel, clear plastic work surface, swirling sticks, and Klutz clear instructions for tons of bracelet designs."

You can click here to watch a how-to video about this book.

How fun! I know I would have loved this as a little girl. Klutz is offering THREE of our readers a chance to win this fabulous book. Just head on over to the Klutz site and tell us your favorite book. Then come back and let us know what it is! This giveaway will end Saturday, May 29th at 11:59 pm PST. Good luck!

I haven't read any of them, but I'm definitely going to have to buy "Good Growing". I loved growing things when I was a kiddo (who am I kidding? now too!!), and I'd love to pass that on to my son.

skcoe said...

Doodle Journal and Melty Beads. We also love the Pipe Cleaner Animal book, but I can't find it on there!

My absolute FAVE book is "Watercolor: for the Artistically Undiscovered." I have this book, and took it with me on a vacation to the beach! I had so much fun, I absolutely LOVED it!! Totally recommend it to anyone who might even THINK they would want to ever watercolor paint in their life!

Jillemina said...

What a fun summer idea! Many of the klutz books would be great for roadtrips! My girls would love "The Only Coloring, Puzzle, Game, Dot-to Dot Activity Book You'll Ever Need" book. It sounds like a good way to kill 7 hours in the backseat of the car!

Thanks for the give away!

Oh, please please please! We have a variety of them, and the mini-book one, the tissue paper flowers one, the bottlecap bracelet one, and the fashion design one have all been a big hit with the seven year old daughter in my life. I'd love to get the BristleBots or DIY Pirate Ship ones for the little boy in my life, though!
Thanks for the fun giveaway!

I have always loved the Friendship Bracelet book. It brings back so many good memories for me. I still make those bracelets when I can find a moment of spare time.

Monica said...

The glossy bands looks like so much fun to do with my girls. My favorite, however, would be the balloon bending. I always wanted to learn how to make cute animals out of the balloons. One problem, though, I am terrified of hearing balloons pop.

organicmommy said...

My favorite is super simple sewing! What a great giveaway!!!

Tina said...

My girls would love the glossy bands and with an upcoming move it would be a great distraction for them.

My favorite was their juggling book. I learned so much about coordination and juggling.....and in a very short amount of time!

Mirissa said...

They have the best books, it's so hard to narrow it down. I've been coveting the "create anything with clay" book for a while now, so I'll say that one.

Laurel said...

We have several Klutz books. One of my favorite is the hair braiding. I think the balloon twisting would be tons of fun for the kids.
But this glossy band book would knock my girls sock off!

My pick would be the loopy potholders book as I use to make them when I was young and I know my three girls would love them.!

I haven't read any of these books, but I think the Good Growing book looks fantastic, I'd love to use it with my daughter when she's a little older.
