What's new with Brit Kits (December Brit+Co Co-Op Party)

Brit+Co has changed my life, and if you are a regular reader of South North South, you have indeed seen many photos of the Brit Kits.  This past spring and fall I participated in the Brit Kit Co-Op and had small DIY parties.  At the DIY parties we were each given a Brit Kit to make and share with the Brit+Co team and give feedback on whether we loved the kit, which every kit we loved!  Recently I have received other Brit Kits throughout the last few months to work with and here is a recap of those kits.

The Rhinestone Wrap Bracelets were a BLAST!  The Brit Kit came with a gold chain, rhinestone chain, and gunmetal chain.  With that you were to thread the chains together with the rhinestones and finish it off with a clasp and jump ring.  The kit came with everything you would need to create this one-of-a-kind bracelet, even the needle-nose pliers!  You can get this kit for $24.99 at the Brit+Co site now!

Another kit is the State-Shaped Memo Board.  With this Brit Kit you receive Cork Boards, an X-acto Knife, Paint, Painter's Tape, and also a free download of the state templates here.  You get everything you need to create a unique and personal memo board to use at home, or at the office.  I ended up making Arkansas and Oregon, and using the three cork board to make a plus sign.  You can get this kit now at the Brit+Co site for under $25.

Then there was the Paint Splattered Travel Case DIY Party.
Unfortunately, we had a power-outage here in the Willamette Valley the night I was set to have my Brit-Kit Co-Op party, so plans took a different turn.  I had everyone take their kits home and then send me photos of their finished projects.


Velcro Brand® also supplied the Velcro needed to make the travel cases.
So thank you Velcro!

And the gold nail polish that comes in the kit was a big hit too!  What else to do in a power-outage?  Paint your nails, of course!

Another kit was the Air Plant String Art kit.  This kit came with a wooden board, hemp twine, nails, and three air plants.  The key was to nail the nails into a fun design and add the string to make it fun.  Once the string was attached to the nails, you simply place the air plants around the board between the string.  

Air plants are easy to keep alive, and string art is one of the fastest growing DIYs out there right now.  I have my finished piece hanging in my shower.  It's so fun to look at everyday.

October's kit was a good one too!  The Clay Candle Holders kit was such a fun DIY to do right before Halloween.  I love working with polymer clay, so this kit was perfect!  The kit comes with three different colors of polymer clay, three glass tea light holders, sucker sticks, and the tea light candles to place in the finished product.  Such a fun kit to do, and it brightest up any room.  

November brought about Oreo Turkey Pops!  How cute are these?


The kit came with everything you need, and then some, to make these fun Turkeys.  This kit was such a blast for my son to help make too!  The kit came with Wilton Candy Melts in chocolate, Oreo's, Caramels, Candy Eyeballs, Fruit Slices, Piping Bag, Sucker Sticks, Small Orange Sprinkles, Red Heart-Shaped Sprinkles, and a Decorating tip.

By smashing the fruit slices together to create the tail and stacking the rest on top of each other, these Turkey Pops were so easy to make.  And eating them was so fun too!  It's such a great kit for kids!  You can get this kit, that makes six pops, on the Brit + Co site for under $25.

And finally December's kit.  This Brit Kit came in the form of a Brit Kit Co-Op party and boy was it a blast!   Everything came for each party-goer to make their very own Giant Decorative Ornament.

Food was set for a night of fun and DIY!  Even the Grinch grapes were ready!

Everyone had fun coming up with different designs to add to their Giant Ornament.

Some serious concentration here.

Such a wonderful and fun company that provides so many wonderful DIY kits for any one's interest.  You can subscribe to the Brit Kits in the form of a month, three months, or longer.  Check them out here!

What happened this time last year?

May Brit Kit Co-op DIY (PAR-DIY)

May brought about another Brit Kit Co-Op for me and this one was a BIG hit!  The chalk board cheese trays from last month were a big hit, but May's Brit Kit was so much fun to make and there was so much creativity brought about with this kit!  We all loved it!

I'm a bit old fashioned when it comes to party invites and I like the personal touch when handing someone an invite to a party.  I think a lot of people have lost touch with that tradition though, but I am still holding on strong with it. 

The rain held out for a few minutes longer while I took some pictures and while DIYers arrived, but then hit again later that evening. Good ole' Oregon.

We put our April Brit Kit, with the chalkboard theme, to good use for this co-op too.  We had quite a lovely spread of goodies and thanks to some of the Party City party ware left from last month we were all set.

Everyone put their creativity to work with this Brit Kit and it was fun watching everyone come up with different designs.

I even let Skylar paint a bag.

Some people free-handed a design, and others used the tape to lay out straight lines. 

While our bags were drying we made some tea and enjoyed the snacks.

The tea with this Brit Kit Co-Op package came from Blackbird Tea Co. and was amazing!  It was so delicious that we all had two or three mugs full.

The flavors we enjoyed were Marrakech Mint and Chai Rojo and you can actually get these flavors yourself right from the Blackbird Tea Co. site for under $12.   The tea is loose leaf tea and comes with the most adorable tea bags that you fill yourself.  It was so much fun to be able to experiment with different amounts and changes of flavor with this tea.

Thanks so much Blackbird Tea Co. for offering us a new adventure with tea. 

Blackbird Tea Co. is on Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, Tumblr, and even YoutTube too, so be sure and follow them and find out more about the tea company.

Thanks so much Brit + Co for another great Brit Kit Co-Op party.  We all had such a great time making our Brit Kit bags and everyone had different ideas on how to use them.  From the beach, to the grocery store, to even used as a library bag for books.
