One of the greatest dilemmas facing crafters is organized, convenient storage. Of course you want your craft supplies to be safe, but you also want them to be easily accessible and portable. Large cardboard boxes, hefty tote bags and baskets just don’t fit the bill. This week only, we’re featuring the ultimate storage solution as the Deal Of The Week. The Artbin Yarn Drum is the smart choice for yarn storage whether you’re crafting at home or on-the-go. Grab your special discount today at CutRateCrafts!
Crafting on-the-go is a hassle. You have to know exactly what supplies you’ll need beforehand. You even have to foreshadow which yarn you’ll feel like using! And if you forget the pattern or the hook… well, you’re doomed. Because portable crafting not only fights boredom during commutes or long waits, but also gives you ample time to finish projects for the holidays, we consider portable storage a necessity! Enter the Artbin Yarn Drum, one of our favorite storage solutions. It holds up to eight standard-sized skeins. The textured PVC base keeps contents dry, and the pouch and pocket hold all the patterns and tools you’ll need. You can even carry this handy bag three easy, comfortable ways.
CutRateCrafts is dedicated to supplying crafters with the best products for the best prices. That’s why this special Deal Of The Week is a whopping 35% off the retail price! Normally sold at $19.99, CutRateCrafts is offering the Artbin Yarn Drum for only $12.99. That’s a whole $7.00 in savings – which is enough to get you started on filling your new storage system! Take advantage of this special discount and order your very own Artbin Yarn Drum today. Available in Periwinkle, Pink and Raspberry, you’re sure to find a color you love.

There are two places that we spend the majority of our time in: our office (because we have to), and our craft room (because we NEED to!) Whether you’re engaging in work or play, make sure you love every moment by making the space your own. Hang up your favorite photos, add a few candles or air fresheners, and add a personal touch with stylish supplies. CutRateCrafts has a variety of trendy supplies that will add personality to your office or craft room for a low cost.
Tape is a basic necessity. You never realize how necessary it is until you’ve used the last roll! Always have a roll at the ready with the Scotch Dispenser With Magic Tape. This tape dispenser isn’t the boring, traditional dispenser you see on shelves of office supply stores. It’s shaped like a turquoise sandal! This flirty, fabulous tape dispenser adds a touch of personality to your craft room or office desk. It also makes a wonderful gift. Available for only $11.89.
Average file cabinets are a snooze. Often available in dull beige or plain black, they’re a perpetual eye sore in most offices and, even worse, craft rooms. Store your papers, files, craft supplies, and more in style with the Fashion Furnishings Apothecary Chest. This sturdy wood chest of drawers has a premium white finish that will add a touch of class to any room. It features nine customizable drawers with protective acrylic fronts, which are perfect for holding important work or your favorite projects and patterns. Make a statement with this chest of drawers for only $110.49.
Sticky notes are a life-saver. From holding your place in a file, to jotting down a phone number, to reminding yourself to pick up more yarn, it’s difficult to imagine what life would be like without these handy little notes. Never forget a thought again with the Knit Happy Mega Sticky Case. The perfect product for a knitting-enthusiast, this is the ultimate case for sticky notes; it includes a stitched vinyl cover that contains 400 sticky notes and flags in a variety of colors. The cover has room for a calendar, or personalize it with a photo. Plus, this package is refillable, so you can enjoy this case over and over again. Available for only $8.49.

The trees are changing colors, the air is crisp and cool, and we spend our weekends watching America’s favorite pastime… football! We love the game, but we also love the entire football experience that makes games memorable. From tailgating to decorating team gear to throwing watch parties, we absolutely love all that football has to offer. Check out CutRateCrafts for discounts on all of your team spirit needs!
Official team gear can be expensive. Hats, blankets, scarves and other memorabilia in your favorite team’s colors can cost more than a ticket to the big game! Luckily, it’s easy to make your favorite projects in team colors with Red Heart Team Spirit Yarn. Whether you’re cheering on your favorite professional team, university, or youth league, Red Heart Team Spirit Yarn has a color combination so you can cheer them on in style! Available for only $3.99.
Football wouldn’t be the same without tailgating! Barbecue, coleslaw, and hotdogs are all favorite fan fare to enjoy before a game. This year, bring the ultimate dish that will amaze everyone: an edible football! With the Wilton Novelty Cake Pan, you can create a football-shaped cake or sandwich that can feed a crowd. Much more creative than plain old sandwiches and tastier than concession food, you’ll want to bring a cake or sandwich made with this pan to every football game! Available for only $11.89.
If you’re hosting a watch party to cheer on your favorite team, you’ll want to set up the atmosphere so it’s festive and fun. You can accomplish this with Jolee’s Boutique Dimensional Stickers in Football. This fun, sporty package contains an assortment of stickers that feature a football jersey, helmet, and other football motifs. Use them to decorate a scrapbook page, party banner, or even invitations to your game day event. Available for only $3.73.

Did you know that today, October 4, 2014, is World Card Making Day? It’s a great way to show people how much you care, because nothing is more sentimental than a homemade card with a thoughtful, handwritten message on the inside. If you forgot about this special paper crafting holiday, don’t worry! CutRateCrafts has everything you’ll need to create your own handmade notes or cards for someone special in your life, no matter what day it is.
You have your different sheets of carefully selected cardstock. Now what? You need to decide what message you would like your card to convey. A card can say anything from “Happy Birthday” to “Get Well Soon” to “I’m Just Thinking About You.” Keep in mind that the best messages are the ones from the heart. Messages printed in store-bought cards sound flowery, but they lack a personal touch. That’s why we love the Vintage Floral EZ Mount Cling Stamp Set. These stamps come in a variety of pretty but simple sentiments that convey your message clearly without drawing attention away from your lovely homemade card. Available for only $11.01.
Once you’ve decided on your message, a card needs decoration! We love embellishments with a vintage look because it’s appropriate for any gender or occasion. Try Blossomwood Cardstock & Acetate Die-Cuts With Foil & Glitter. Each package comes with 65 shapes with foil and glitter accents that will make your homemade card appear extra-special. The classic but attention-grabbing adornments are an ideal addition, no matter what message you’re trying to send. Available for only $4.67.
Finally, after you’ve added a message and decoration to your card, you need to add depth! If you browse the aisles of any card store, you’ll notice that the most eye-catching displays are the ones that utilize dimension. Unfortunately, dimension isn’t cheap on store-bought cards. These days, an elaborate card is practically as expensive as the present that accompanies it! You can add depth to your handmade card inexpensively with Parchment Petals Paper Flowers. The gorgeous vintage-inspired flowers will look amazing framing your special message. Each package contains eight 1 ½ inch paper flowers. Available for only $4.25.

October is a beautiful month best known for snuggly scarves, vibrant leaves, and hot apple cider. But October is also Breast Cancer Awareness month. Whether you are a survivor of this disease, know someone who is fighting it, or wish to bring awareness, there are tons of Pink Ribbon-inspired crafts that you can create. Keep them for yourself or donate them to help in the fight against breast cancer.
The Knit For A Cause Kit is an easy and charitable way to learn how to knit. Not only can you create a fun knit project, but a portion of the proceeds from each kit sold will be donated to benefit the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation. Complete with two skeins of pink Fun Fur yarn, size 15 pink knitting needles, large-eyed blunt needle for finishing, fully illustrated beginner knitting instructions, and step-by-step instructions, you’ll be amazed at how easy it is to knit your own scarf. Plus, this kit is further proof that crafting can be good for your health: each kit also includes a laminated self-exam guide. Available for only $14.44.
This special yarn from Bernat is not only stunning, but is also a statement for Breast Cancer Awareness. Ruffelina is a fun ruffle-style yarn that can make one scarf using just one ball of yarn. The shades of pink look great, and bringing awareness to this disease will make you feel great, too. We think the ruffles and pretty hues of this yarn make it an especially pretty selection. Available for only $4.24.
You can also make pink jewelry to support Breast Cancer Awareness. Craft a necklace, bracelet or set of earrings with Jolee’s Jewels Swarovski Elements Bicone. These gorgeous pink 6mm bi-cone beads are impossible to ignore. They’re a great way to spark conversation about why you’re wearing them. Each package features a mixture of light, dark, and opalescent pink. Available for only $4.24.

Each season has its own signature aromas and flavors, and we think that Fall is the champion in this arena! From fresh crackling leaves to comforting casseroles baking in the oven, Fall is the season where crisp outdoor scents combine with the rich smells of home to create a deliciously cozy feeling. These scents and flavors of our favorite autumn staples have been transformed into Fall-inspired yarns that you can enjoy all season long! CutRateCrafts wants you to enjoy the best Fall has to offer, so we’ve selected our favorites for your next craft project. But be careful! These skeins look good enough to eat!
On a chilly autumn morning, nothing tastes better than a hot mug of apple cider! The crisp apple flavor makes for a delicious wake-up call! Now, you can feel just as snuggly as when you take that first sip when you craft with Delish Yarn in Apple Cider. When you wear a knit sweater or crochet scarf in this yarn, you’ll feel as comfortable as if you were drinking your favorite Fall beverage all day long. Available for only $11.04.
Fall wouldn’t be the same without pumpkins! We use them in our decorating, cooking, and of course our pumpkin spice lattes! Pay homage to the most popular autumn symbol with Softee Chunky Yarn in Pumpkin. Make a homemade hot pad for taking pumpkin pies out of the oven, or craft a DIY pair of socks with this ultra-comfy yarn. Available for only $2.80.
Pie is a savory Fall indulgence, and there are so many great flavors to choose from! Our favorite is pecan, which translates perfectly in this skein of Nature’s Choice Yarn in Pecan. This easy-to-work-with, organic cotton yarn was grown and spun without the use of pesticides, herbicides or other chemicals. Good for your crafts and good for the planet, you’ll love making a crochet baby afghan or knit hat with this sweet skein! Available for only $7.22.
