Crafter's Companion Inspirers Design Team - Project #2

Good morning everyone

Well I'm here today to share the 2nd of my March Crafter's Companion Design Team projects with you. Today's project celebrates Children's Craft Day, so in honour of this fabulous day I created a mini craft kit using Crafter's Companion products plus a few extras elements. For my kit I decided on a Mother's Day theme, and aimed my kit at children from 5+. For the full kit content please check below the photo. I have included a sample card in the pictures to show what could be made using some of the content.

The kit could easily be adopted for any occasion eg birthday, Christmas, kids parties, Halloween etc. All that is required is some glue and the kit will keep the kiddie winkies occupied for hours.  Just a thought...why not get a few ready for the next half term holidays (Easter).

You could also tweak my idea for a friend who you're trying to get into crafting....simply let your imagination go wild. Thanks for looking 💚

Here's What I Did
Using the patterned papers as a colour guide, I simply die cut lots of flower shapes and letters in different sizes and colours, and included a few gems, buttons and glitter. Everything was slipped inside the cellophane bag and added a bag topper which I created using a computer program. I did package the buttons, tiny die cuts, sequins and glitter separately so they didn't get lost or spilt. All that is required now is some wet glue or a glue stick, and a willing child. :)
