Creatables was founded in 2008 by a group of Swedish designers and engineers with the mission of upcycling material from production factories into tangible teaching tools for teachers and students.
What started as a wildly popular and successful Kickstarter Campaign is now one of the hottest items in the maker space. Strawbees by Creatables allows crafters, students, hobbyists and everyone in between to build anything they can dream up using recyclable material and straws. There are many applications for Strawbees, from hosting mini maker labs for students to prototyping for larger scale projects. The sculpture possibilities are endless. Watch the video.
AccuCut has partnered with Creatables to launch Strawbees. These new dies are designed to inspire students and makers to dream BIG and create new and imaginative projects using simple materials like straws and recycled plastic. See the Strawbees Connections chart.
You can buy the dies and materials to make your own Strawbees sets or purchase any of our three kits. Whatever you choose, you’re sure to spark creativity.
