DIY Crafts, a new term for basic crafting with a twist, are creative, functional projects that require a little or a lot of hands on crafting. The word crafting has gone in and out of favor over the years and we are so excited that it is definitely in favor right now for both personal and creative small businesses.
Today’s DIY Crafter is looking for quality components to create ideas of their own or to re-create ideas they are seeing on Pinterest, Instagram or while searching the web. Projects are truly functional from wall décor and DIY pillows to party décor and unique teacher gifts and everywhere in between.
Along with the need for quality, we know that DIY crafters are looking for unique, trendy components that allow their projects to feel up to date, match their style and also easy to personalize. Across all of our brands we are always looking for new craft components that are missing in the market, from vintage wooden trays to jester style Christmas stockings or mixed media paints that we designed to paint on burlap when we could not find anything that worked the way we hoped.
Our three brands come together to provide surfaces, paints and embellishments that together are the building blocks of your creative imagination. While we don’t carry everything, we play well with others and focus on the basic, classic products.
Here are just a few of the categories of craft products you will find throughout Canvas Corp Brands:

Sometimes the simplest craft supplies are the very hardest to find, like blank calendar sheets, blank postcard sheets and recipe cards. Available in kraft, white and ivory, these basics are ready to be crafted upon.

Wooden Trays and Crates
Vintage inspired Letterblock trays, library drawers and shadow boxes that are ready to be filled with ephemera new and old. These amazing bases are sized for display of photos, pieces of art, vintage found pieces or something that is newly created.
Stretched Burlap and Canvas
Unlike traditional stretched canvas, ours is natural (no gesso included) this opens up the design possibilities to almost endless results. The natural materials will accept just about any craft paints, rub-ons, iron-ons, inks, mists, dyes, stamp inks and more. If gesso is required on all or part of the canvas it can be easily added in the desired thickness and color. The canvases range from 2”x2” to larger sizes such as 12”x24” and 18”x18”. We also offer them in a “chunky” or double the size of our standard format, as well as, standard depth of 1”. We have been just as created on the front of the stretched canvas and burlap as we are on the flip side. So think outside of the stretched canvas and burlap and design anything and anywhere you want to.
We offer a wide range of products for creating mini and hand-held books. These basic components are the perfect building blocks for creating art journals, gratitude journals, guest books, photo albums, baby books, brag books, picture books, mixed media books and so much more. Our newest addition to the line are canvas portfolios in two sizes that were inspired by basic office portfolios. A perfect new crafting blank.
Under our Tattered Angels brand we offer a collection of paints for all of your crafting needs. Our mists, including Glimmer Mist, Simply Sheer, Chalkboard and Baseboard are water-based paints filled with glimmer and color and are ready to mist just about any craft surface including canvas, burlap, paper, cardstock, velum, vinyl, acrylic, plastic, glass, lace, silk, raw wood, finished wood, vintage wood, barn wood, mdf, and many other surfaces. Our mists are not designed to paint on clothing or material that will be washed, but we have found they work on just about any other surface. While we love our mist paints, which is where company began, we have spread our wings and crated some additional paints including Glimmer Glaze a nail-polish style paint that comes with its own brush applicator and can be applied to any surface to add color and a touch of glimmer. Glimmer Glam is paint filled with big chunky glitter and can be applied with any style paint brush. Stained Glass was designed to adhere to clear crystals, acrylic, glass or plastic allowing the light to shine through; the objects can be dipped into the paint container or applied with a brush. Our newest paint in the collection is High Impact and it comes in both a metallic and a pigment collection. We needed a paint that would paint onto any surface with solid, pure color and High Impact Paint does just that. Originally designed for painting on burlap, as we could not find a paint that worked the way we wanted it to. This paint is perfect for mixed media, home décor, indoor and outdoor painting and so much more.
Vintage Craft Supplies
The 7gypsies line was conceived with the idea of bringing to life vintage pieces, paper and art to the market with a fun and quirky twist. Available in stand alone pieces, as well as, mix and match collections with a wide range of vintage themes including Christmas, Halloween, Wedding, Sports, Vintage Photos, Travel, Food, Beach and Cruise Vacation, African and Zoo Travel and many more unique vintage themes.
