How to make our handprint flower vase art
Start by drawing around little one’s hand and then cutting out 3-5 handprints from your different coloured paper.
Next cut out an equal amount of green paper stems to match the amount of handprint flowers. Glue the stems onto the back of the flowers. Then glue the flowers down onto your paper with all the stems directing towards the middle of the page
Cut out the shape of your flower pot and add any extra decoration you would like. We used some ribbon to make a bow on ours! Glue the flower pot down at the bottom of your page across the stems.
Finish off by adding a few paper leaves and any optional extra message and your picture is done and ready to display once dry! Don’t these look adorable?
How cute is this simple toilet roll flower craft? These little flowers are a great project for kids to work on with a grownup. They look fabulous on display and are perfect for gifting for mothers day or valentines day too!
Heres what we used
Paint & a paintbrush (we used green for the stem and leaves & yellow for the petals)
Glue (we used a glue gun but pva and pegs work too!)
How to make this toilet roll flower craft
Start by taking the paper rolls and stem item and coating them in colored paint. we used one yellow roll, one green roll and one painted green skewer (with the pointy end chopped off!) Per flower.
Cut your coloured paper roll into 5-7 rings. For this flower we used 5.
Pinch the rings at each side to form the petal shapes. Using a blob of glue at one end, glue a petal on either side of the stem. Then continue to glue the petals around ensuring they are glued to the petal on either side of it.
Cut out a coloured circle to make the centre of the flower and use a black marker to add some seeds. Glue the circle down in place.
Take the green paper roll and cut out some thin green rings. Pinch them at either end to make the leaf shape and then glue them onto the stem. Once dry your toilet roll flower craft is finished! Aren’t these just the sweetest?

Here’s what we used
Quilling strips OR coloured paper cut into long thin strips
Cocktail stick (optional)
How to make this adorable Paper flower card
First you’ll want to Start by making your card. We made ours tall and narrow by folding a square piece of card. Once you have your card, cut out a white paper rectangle to glue onto the front and create the frame effect.
Next take your quilling strips/ long thin pieces of coloured paper and begin rolling them tightly. We did ours just by hand but some people find it handy to use a cocktail stick. Once you have reached the end glue the loose end down onto the paper roll.
Glue down a rolled peice of paper for the centre of the flower and then cut out and glue down a thin strip of paper for the stem.
Build up the rolled paper petals around the outside of the flower. 5-6 normally works perfectly.
To make the leaves, roll and glue your paper a little less tightly and then pinch it at opposite ends. Add a paper flower pot and a name/message and this adorable paper flower card is complete and ready to gift!
How cute are these yarn wrapped hearts – Perfect for gifting!
It’s a little bit late to be sharing these for valentines day but we made them a couple of days ago and I think they are just too cute not to share! These little hearts are so sweet and fun to craft and are fab as little handmade gifts for children to make and gift for valentines day, mothers day, fathers day, birthdays and much more. The best part is that they’re so simple and quick to make too!
Here’s what you’ll need
A piece of cardboard (an old box will do!)
Stapler or tape
How to make these yarn wrapped hearts
Take a piece of old cardboard and cut out the base shape of your heart. Attach the end of the yarn onto the heart using either tape or staples.
Wrap the yarn around the heart several times until you get a nice thick and puffy heart shape. Don’t worry if the yarn slips during the first couple of rounds, it gets easier as the heart gets bigger and you have more yarn for it to catch on. Once you’re happy with the size of the heart, snip off the yarn and tie your loose end around one of the strands on the heart before gentle tucking the loose end into the heart.
To use the yarn heart as a hanging ornament simply cut out a length of yarn, thread it under the yarn at the top center of the heart and tie it into a knot.
With Easter right around the corner we’ve been loving all the adorable spring animal crafts and products that are about at the moment and We decided to make our own Easter cards. After a bit of experimenting we came up with these super cute kawaii bunny cards. With the current virus situation my son won’t be able to hand them out but we can always send a picture to his friends! Besides, we can stash them in the cupboard as back up birthday cards for the next time I forget to pick one up (it happens more than i’d like to admit!).
You will need
Start off by taking an A4 piece of card and fold it in half. Draw the shape of your bunny head on to your card by drawing an egg shape with two elongated ears (you’ll need a flat section at the bottom so that your card can stand up). Remember to leave part of your fold line intact otherwise instead of one card you will have two separate bunny faces! Now cut out your card.
Once you have your bunny card cut out, cut out and glue down two coloured ovals to make the rabbit’s inner ears.
Now to make the eyes! There are two examples in the picture above. If you want to make the happy squinting eyes, cut out three rounded strips of black card and stick them into a triangular shape as above. For the big open eyes, cut out a black circle then add a white circle and a smaller white circle to make the light spots. Make two eyes and glue them down on your bunny.
Cut out a black number 3 shaped piece and glue it down to make the mouth.
finish off by adding two pink ovals to make some rosy cheeks. Optionally, add a bow by cutting out an hourglass shape and a different coloured circle, glue the two pieces together and stick them at the base of your bunny’s ear.
