My little girl is 6 and decided this year she wanted to learn how to make your own Christmas cards.
I had a good look around pinterest and some crafts sites and got lots of ideas but some looked pretty complicated and some needed things that we don’t have. In the end I just got out lots of Christmastime bits and plonked them on the table. We decided to use out own imaginations and rather than spending anything we would simply work with what we had.
Luckily fo rme I had been sent some really useful craft review items form Bostik. We had 2 types of glu dots removable (brilliant for glass/photosgrapohs and extra strong for metal /wood and paper.
Me and Lisi had the most wonderful time talking about what she wants for Christmas, Mrs Claus , How Santa must be super fast on his sleigh and we made a variety of cards.
She took a few goes to get the hang of the glitter pens but loved them once she had,. They made so much less mess that glitter.
We also like the glue dots enormously. We didn’t get glue all over our hands and it didn’t soak of wrinkle or tear the paper as normal runny glue can. It work really well too, no leaving it hours to dry and hoping for the best. This stuff is seriously sticky ( but easy for little hands to manage)

We had such a nice time and thanks to our Bostik products and lots of scrappy bits and bobs I think we made some lovely home grown Christmas cards.
