How to make a foldable Cardboard Box Tractor with Free Printables 3

How to make a foldable tractor out of a cardboard box with free printables is a paid collaboration with Halfords #ImaginationStation. One of my best ever gifts was a bike and this is the same for lots of children, but also kids LOVE cardboard boxes. So why not reuse the cardboard box that comes with your child bike and make a brilliant cardboard tractor, even better this cardboard box tractor folds flat for storage.


Tissue Confetti DIY Decorated Photo Frame 2

Tissue Confetti DIY Decorated Photo Frame is a paid collaborative post with Bostik. This is a super simple craft DIY that is a perfect group craft for tweens and teens. Just imagine doing this as a birthday party craft or with a group of beavers or cubs. Alternatively, you could make this for the birthday boy/girl and pop a picture of them in it.


DIY Applique Monstera Leaf Cushions using The Cricut Maker

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Cricut. The opinions and text are all mine. These DIY Applique Monstera Leaf Cushions were cut out using my Cricut Maker and its rotary cutter blade. The game changer for me between the Cricket Maker and previous Cricut cutting machines is its ability to cut fabric unstabilised with ease, accuracy and speed.


DIY Painted Terracotta Plant Pots – with Herb Puns 2

DIY Painted Terracotta Plant Pots – with Herb Puns is a paid collaboration with Bostik. If you are anything like me then you will have some of those supermarket herbs on your windowsill and these DIY painted plant pots are a great way to keep them, rather than in their sad black plastic pots with cellophane wrappers.

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Cricut. The opinions and text are all mine. This Iron on Umbrella DIY is a quick project and a great way to put a happy slant on a rainy day. I have always been a fan of personalised items and love how easy and quick it is to make my own customised umbrella using iron on vinyl with the Cricut Maker and The Cricut EasyPress 2.


DIY Etched Wooden Heart Keyrings 5

As my boys’ get older encouraging them to be creative is becoming harder and hard but they both loved making these DIY etched wooden heart keyrings perhaps it had something to do with the fact that they were using a burning tool!  I am warning you this is so addictive we now want to etch everything that is wooden! So hold on to your hats folks as this is a great craft for older kids and adults alike.
