Etsy Craft Party

A craft party is a perfect chance to spend quality time with the kids, and get creative. Etsy invited us to take part in their paper crafting theme party, and we had a blast. I set the scene with paper honeycombs and print balloons from My Little day, a fresh bouquet from Debenhams flowers and covered the table with Dear Lizzie patterned paper from Hobbycraft.

There are plenty of tutorials on the Etsy blog but the mini adorn kids went to town on their own ideas. Mini Adorngirl took a selfie with her brother with her Fuji Instax mini, framing the Instax film with sticky back ribbon, and covering the joined edges with cute die cut shapes. My son settled on a calendar, after cutting out and creating a lion, gluing to stripe paper, stamping letters, and drew numbers freehand. The tricky part was not taking over, and letting them be. It was such a great day and might become our new weekend tradition.
