Are you ready to learn about a hot new product that is being used across the country by everyone from crafters and hobbyists, teachers and students, homeschooling families, and ministry and activity leaders to create amazing art projects and activities that are limited only by one’s imagination?
Today I’d like to introduce you to Smart-Fab – a unique, non-woven fabric that is unlike any other material on the market!
Smart-Fab is considered the smart alternative to paper and cloth for several reasons:
- Smart-Fab is strong and flexible, yet soft yet durable.
- Smart-Fab is easy to cut, fold, twist, crimp, ruffle and glue.
- Smart-Fab won’t rip, fray, or wear out.
- Smart-Fab is water and wear resistant.
- Smart-Fab can easily be colored with paints, crayons, markers and all popular art media!
- Smart-Fab comes in a variety of bold and brilliant colors.
The folks at Smart-Fab sent me a Sample Pack of Smart-Fab products containing three sample rolls of the product – a color swatch-book – and a few brochures to familiarize myself with the product. Since I couldn’t wait to share Smart-Fab with you, I thought I’d put it to the test by making a card – one of my frequent crafting outlets!
For my first test of the product, I decided to use a paper punch to cut a pretty flower for the card. The paper punch did a splendid job of cutting a thick piece of cardstock – but, unfortunately, the Smart-Fab got stuck in the punch and did not cut all the way through it.
However – once the Smart-Fab was rescued from the punch – I used a pair of scissors to finish cutting the pattern out and it passed the scissors test with flying colors! Both the large and small scissors I tested the Smart-Fab with cut through the material beautifully without any of the fraying I often get when cutting through regular fabric.
Next, I ran a few strips though my Xyron machine which is currently filled with a repositionable adhesive. The Smart-Fab worked beautifully with this – there are actually two strips glued to the bottom of the card!
This is just a small sample of what you can do with Smart-Fab. For more ideas on how to use Smart-Fab:

Would you like to try Smart-Fab for yourself? The folks at Smart-Fab would love to send one lucky Create With Joy reader three sample size rolls to play with (these are the same size rolls they sent me – but the colors you receive will be a surprise!)
The kitten, of course, is not included!
