Make-at-Home Kits: A New Way to Get Your IOD Fix

Last updated May 28, 2020

While you might not be able to attend in-person workshops right now, that doesn’t mean you have to stop creating with IOD.

Our stockists (you know, the lovely local shopkeepers that help us get IOD transfers, moulds, and stamps to you) came up with some creative ways to help you get your craft on with IOD “Make-at-Home Kits.”

What are Make-at-Home Kits?

A “Make-at-Home Kit” comes with the creative products that you need to complete a specific project all bundled together. They might contain full transfers or smaller, cut up sections, single project sized portions of paints, brushes, or project blanks, such as a pre-cut wooden board.

The kits make it easier for you to create at home because, instead of having to assemble all the different components for a DIY project, the supplies come all together – and include print or video instructions.

Make-at-home kits are cost effective too. Rather than buying bulk supplies for one project, you get the exact amount needed. And you get the chance to try out new decor tools without investing in the purchase of a full-size product.

Each kit is different so be sure to read what’s included before making a purchase.

    I need the spring pennant set

  2. Lori Otto on April 28, 2020 at 5:05 pm

    I would like to see a kit using various rub-on flowers for a dresser or a coffee cart. I have seen photos but no one says what flower packs they used or how many packages of each different one. I would like to see a kit.
