Craft-Along Craft Party!

Are you ready for a craft party? Here's how you can create your own craft-along craft party using CreativeBug available with your HPL card.

 

 STEP ONE
 Sign in to your CreativeBug account and find a craft you want to learn about and do with friends.
 STEP TWO
 Contact some of your friends and arrange a time for an online video conference chat. Use Zoom or any video chat program you have available to everyone. Practice connecting with each other and sharing your screen, too, before your first craft-along craft party!
 STEP THREE
 Everyone gathers the supplies needed. Check the supplies list available in each CreativeBug Tutorial.
 STEP FOUR
 Meet with your friends online and go LIVE!
 STEP FIVE
 During your time together, sign in to your Creativeug account and find the craft or art lesson you've chosen. Share your screen with your friends and play the video tutorials of the art or craft you’ve chosen to do together. You can pause it whenever you need and rewind, too!

Follow along with the expert instructor in CreativeBug and make your project, together and online!
OPTIONAL: Have coffee, tea, or a glass of wine on hand!!
