I Try DIY Shop

It’s been busy at the I Try DIY HQ. We had our first bazaar this Christmas season, put up crafts stations at a couple birthday parties, churned out a lot of halloween tutorials for the site, and worked on new workshop offerings! The biggest undertaking though is finally complete, and we can’t wait to share it with you.

We finally opened the online I Try DIY Shop! After a couple years of selling craft tools and handmade goods at random bazaars, we thought we had to make our items available to a bigger crowd. We have a wide array of craft tools, decorative punchers, stamps and stationery items.


Yes, another Giveaway!
