Learn the Art of Crunching!

  • Crunch in the center of each fabric square with the shiny side facing UP for a better, longer-lasting hold.
  • Make sure you are only crunching ONE piece of fabric at a time!
  • Be sure to press the cruncher downward until it cannot go any further to ensure fabric is far enough through the foam.
  • To prevent foam from tearing, avoid crunching too close to the edge of the templates & avoid crunching pieces of fabric too closely together.

Activity Set Tips

The fun doesn't stop after crunching! Your finished creations have endless possibilities using craft supplies you already have at home:

  • Crunch a hole & add a ribbon to hang designs around the house!
  • Tape your creations to the mirror in your room!
  • Glue a magnet to the back of your creation & stick to the fridge!

Mega Set Tips

  • The circle foam shape can be more than just a smiley face. Design a peace sign, soccer ball... whatever you want!
  • Googly eyes stick best when applied straight to the foam - remember to leave a space for them when crunching.
  • When your creations are complete, tie the ends of ribbon in double-knots for a strong, secure hold.
  • Hang your finished creations from a door knob, on the wall or from a magnet on your fridge!

Frame Making Set Tips

(Oops... our mistake! Please disregard the label on the large frame back, and use as instructions state with a 5" x 7" photo.

For the small frame back, please insert a 3" x 5" photo OR tape a 4" x 6" photo - your choice!

We apologize for any confusion!)

  • Multiple foam frames are included so you can switch up your style! Crunch 1 large and 1 small frame at a time. Later, remove fabric & re-crunch onto blank templates for a whole new look!
  • Pop out the center square inside the foam frames to use as a practice surface to perfect your crunching techniques!

Mirror Making Set Tips

  • Two foam templates are included so you can switch up your style! Crunch 1 mirror template at a time. Later, remove fabric & re-crunch onto the second template for a whole new look!
  • Pop out the center circle inside the foam templates to use as a practice surface to perfect your crunching techniques!
  • Double-knot the ends of the ribbon before hanging your mirror for a strong, secure hold.
