You can earn $400 a week or more sitting at home in a recliner making crafts. There are many legitimate work at home crafts assembly jobs you can do. Here is some advice about setting up your workplace and the supplies you need to work at home assembling crafts. There are also five legitimate craft assembly jobs you can do at home with websites. You can work part time or full time. You may have to practice to make the crafts item correctly and you have to pay attention to detail and be patient.

You will need a place to work with a table and lamp in your home. If you have a sewing room that might be a good place to work. You can also get a craft table and set it up in the living room or den. Try to decide on a good location for making crafts in your house. You may need plenty of light to see through a magnifying glass so you may want to set up a craft table near a window and a lamp.

You may need to have a sewing basket and supplies like scissors, rulers, glue and pencils. You might need to have glue guns and glue for glue guns. You may need to have needles and thread. You can keep these supplies in sewing or craft baskets and plastic totes near the craft table. You may want to have a combination light and magnifying glass that rests on your shoulder to do crafts with. You may also want to add some flexible lights you can attach to the table you work at. You can find those at crafts stores and discount stores.

You will also probably need plenty of plastic bags to keep the finished craft items in. When you have completed a craft item put it in a plastic bag immediately so it does not get soiled. The item may not pass inspection if there is anything wrong with it. So keep every craft item you make in plastic bags. You will also probably want to keep them in a safe place like a plastic storage container with a lid so they won't be damaged.

You also may need plenty of cardboard boxes to mail the craft items in, labels and postage stamps. You can also print labels with postage. You will also need tape for packages. The tape you ordinarily use is not wide or strong enough, you need tape that is made for packages that are mailed. If you don't see it anywhere else the Post Office sells it.
