BzzAgent Review- Elmer's And X-ACTO

As a BzzAgent I had the opportunity to review some fabulous products for Elmer's and X-ACTO. I was excited to be able to review these products, but I had no idea how much BzzAgent would send me, or how much I would use thse products. My BzzKit arrived faster than I had expected, and these are the products that I found inside the box:
They sent me two pairs of the X-ACTO Decorative Edge Scissors. These scissors are not like the ones I have used in the past.  These scissors are very sturdy. They make precise cuts, and are big enough for an adult-sized hand. We used these scissors for our homeschool scrap books. We also used them for the labels we put on our water bottles. We printed out regular labels with our names on them, but we cut the edges to make a neat design. These scissors weren't difficult to use on the stickers.

I also received an X-ACTO Corner Round Punch. This item is very strong and durable. There were no frayed edges on our work. The corners we made turned out very round.

The Elmer's CraftBond permanent Tape Runner holds crafts just like glue. I tested this product with help of 4 and 5 year olds. We made crafts at church and found that this product is great for our crafts. It holds well enough for all our crafts. We even used very small strips for googly eyes, and they held just as well as the things with big strips. The children were even able to use this product themselves. 

We tried out all the glue, the Elmer's CraftBond Glue Pen,the Elmer's CraftBond All-Purpose Glue Stick, and the glue spots. We used the glue stick to put our people of history on our timeline that is in the hallway. We have not always found a glue stick that would hold up to the different temperatures when the air system is on or off, but this one has kept our timeline looking well. None of the people are warped, or "bubbly."
The glue pen turned out to work so well, that we even used it on one of our Halloween costumes. : ) The glue spots are fantastic for the pictures in our scrapbooks. There is no mess to clean up when we use these. 
You can find these great products at the store. I priced them after I received them. Although they are higher priced than your local store brand, they're not much more expensive. You may have to invest a little more to purchase these products, but you'll definitely see a difference when you use these.
