We learned two important lessons from the afternoon; firstly you can never have enough glitter, and secondly no matter how much newspaper you cover the table with, children will always find a way to make a mess regardless. Despite our newly glittered walls, we had a fantastic day and really enjoyed seeing the creative designs that the group came up with. From elegant, effortless and simple to bold, bright and shiny, there was something to suit everyone’s tastes and all for next to nothing as they recycled old accessories, cards and wrap.
Millie and mum Emma created some stunning designs with old ribbon and leftover glitter from last year
Amelie, Olivia and mum Katy made these colourful designs from old Christmas cards
Jamie made this sweet penguin card from scraps of black card and glitter
Rachel and mum Mel made these rustic cards using old tags and brown paper
