Designers Craft Connection November Challenge

I could not be more excited about becoming a part of the "Designers Craft Connection". It is a group of  talented Professional Craft Educators like myself that bring awesome design concepts and projects for you!!! This month we were challenge to work with a fabulous product you all might be familiar with...

It is called "Smoothfoam™" aka "The Crafter's Foam"

Smoothfoam™ is our brand name for EPS or Expandable Polystyrene. It is a smooth, closed cell foam. It is often referred to as the smooth Styrofoam. It is molded from tiny beads into many shapes like balls, bells, eggs, miniature fruit shapes and more. Because of its smooth surface it is excellent for painting. It is also very durable, making it great for projects requiring pins or glue.

This companies products have been featured in Martha Stewart Living Magazine and more!!

 I had the pleasure to create with this awesome product!!! Earlier this year I created this lovely Rosette Wreath using the Smoothfoam™ 9" Wreath Shape. It was perfect for all the hot glueing, pinning and the flatness of the rosettes. It was very durable and truly the "Crafters Foam.
