Homemade Christmas!

December 17, 2013

I am the least crafty person in the world. Trust me. When an email from cartridgesave.co.uk dropped in my inbox about Christmas crafting I laughed and left it. A few days later, after a few glasses of wine, I thought ‘How hard could it be?!’ and accepted the challenge. There is a prize to win £500 for the best cracker but as we had no loo rolls in the house (we forgot and threw then out!) we’re out of that. I did want to share what we made as we’re so proud of ourselves!

cartridgesave.co.uk have created 6 downloadable (free) guides suitable for children to make various decorations, including the ill fated crackers. We went for the 3D tree decoration.

We had so much fun making this that after Sam put his jim jams on, he played some more. He sat ever so quietly, cutting, sticking and creating until almost 9pm. We didn’t have the heart to stop him when he was enjoying himself so much!

Thank you for sending the craft pack through – you may have just made a very uncrafty family, crafty!
