oly*fun™ works inside and out and is very economical. It’s a great alternative for PARTY CRAFTING – and can be used instead of paper or tissue for many projects. It’s more durable than papers – won't crease, wrinkle or tear quickly in wind or from hyper kids - and it won’t disintegrate when coming into contact with water. Essentially all school spirit color combinations are included in the 18 color palette of oly*fun™! Make spirit pom-poms, spirit cuff bracelets, bleacher cushions, ponchos, etc. for your students and community. Can make a great fundraiser - sell easy to make projects by kids and families at reasonable cost and lots of value... perfect event before a big game!

CREATIVE GIFT WRAPPING – To sew or not to sew – that is your question! Use basic folding and wrapping techniques or more complicated origami with oly*fun™ to create beautiful, unique and durable gift wrapping. Vibrant colors can be used as is, or can be stamped, stenciled, or painted on with a variety of materials. 

If you can make it in Felt, you can make it in oly*fun™ - but it will be more weather and water resistant with a more tailored look and feel.

Easy to die cut - use oly*fun™ in your crafting, scrapbooking, bulletin board art, school projects, and all sorts of teacher/student projects.
