Here's What's in My Party Toolkit

I've been meaning to post this for a while... Here are the items in my party toolkit that I couldn't live without. I'm dying to know what is in yours, so please comment at the end of this post.

A good pair of sissors.

A 3 inch extra large punch for making all my party circles.

A 3 inch extra large scalloped edge punch for a little variety.

Several sheets of removable glue dots. I just got turned onto these and I love them!  They are great for sticking things on the wall or sticking things to each other.

A set of permanent markers in lots of colors for any last minute signs I have to make.

Lots of safety pins in different sizes. Because I don't sew, these are a life-saver for any fabric that needs pinning or tucking.

Double-sided tape, my old standby. But since I've been using glue dots, I don't use this as much.

A big piece of white tulle. I'm always amazed at all the ways I can use it, it goes with everything, and it's cheap. This item doesn't fit in my toolkit, but I love it so much, I have to include it. A big roll of kraft paper. It's not only functional, but I think it looks cool - unfinished and playful.

Lots of ribbon. I buy them on sale in loads of colors and use them to dress up everything.

Okay, your turn.
