    Word to the crafty herd: Michaels has blessed us with a 20% off sale for ALL their regular-priced goods, which means you can get crackin' on all those household projects and Mother's Day gift you've been swearing you'd start.

    TruTV

    Lucky for you, we rounded up some items worth your (crafty) time and money:

    Michaels

    Promising review: "So much easier than an iron! Just one press for glitter or regular HTV! love the built-in timer and ability to set temperatures. Love that I don't have to worry about steam from an iron or hot/cold spots." —angie_getscraft

    BTW, most Cricut Machines at Michaels are on sale rn (therefore *not* eligible for this 20% off code) but I highly recommend taking advantage while you can! If you find yourself cutting a lot for projects, a Cricut will change your dang life (and it's so easy to use!).

    Promising review: "I love this Wilton Cake Pan. Not all pans are created equal in features that matter. As a baker my worse fear is my cake will stick. Equally important is baking even and the pan itself cleaning up great. This pan does it all and it's worth the cost. Purchased to bake this cake for my daughter's bday!" —Sissycat60

I had looked at other retailers, including Walmart for an affordable option, but had no success until finding this model. It certainly is not as fancy as other, more expensive models, but I feel that it really helped me make a beautiful cake! I would highly recommend this turntable to other light users (like me) who like an affordable and functional solution!" —Theresa3177
