Gel-A-Peel Pearly Pastel Kit Review and Giveaway

My girls love to do arts and crafts and honestly if there were more hours in the day we would be getting creative on a daily basis.  Unfortunately with school taking up to much time and then the dreaded homework, trying to squeeze in reading and then not forgetting the tutors with their homework most of our days are used up so there isn’t much time to get out all our arts and crafts gear and get making fabulous designs.  The weekends are great as we have a little more time to do things so this weekend the girls were super organised and started preparing for Mother’s Day 2017 which is on the 27th of March.  It was really appropriate as apparently March is #NationalCraftMonth.  They decided to design Mother’s Day cards using a new product we had been sent to review: Gel-A-Peel.

For those like us that have never come across Gel-A-Peel before this is very easy to use and I speak from experience.  This was something we were very excited to try and we read all the instructions first to make sure we did it correctly.  There isn’t much to it, you simply choose your nozzle (tip) and pipe the gel into shapes and patterns.

The girls were very keen to do a YouTube video to tell you all about it:


Inside the box we found 3 pearly pastel gel tubes, 16 design templates, 5 designer tips, and a gel tray.  You can also use this in arts and crafts designs it’s a flexible product and isn’t limited to one thing.  We decided to get creative and make some Mother’s Day cards so firstly we used the tray provided to make some gems and flowers.

The gems and other items will take a few hours to dry.  We left ours whilst the kiddies were out so about 6 hours.  I also thought I we should also make one of the items the kit has been designed for so we made some bracelets using one of the templates provided.  We added in some crystals (these did not come with the pack) as we thought they would look great against the pearl colour of the bracelets.  The crystals were attached whilst the gel was still wet.

Then we started on our card designs.

Didn’t they do a fabulous job!

The cards could have also be made using the gel pens only like this:

The girls also loved their bracelets.  Don’t they look pretty.  They felt very soft too and the girls liked stroking them.

My girls plan to make some more bracelets for their friends.
