Disclosure: We were given this selection of paper & card by Paper Cutz free of charge for the purpose of this post.
Paper Cutz sent us a great selection of A4 and A3 paper and card to get crafting with, and so the kids and I had some fun on a rainy afternoon doing some paper crafts last week. We’ve got some A3 cards and coloured papers, and some A4 coloured papers, cards and self adhesive paper sheets.
We visited the sea life centre a few days before and the girls got origami fish, so they wanted to make fish pictures to go up on the wall. We used large A3 paper for the sea, and I printed some fish outlines onto some fluorescent orange paper, for the girls to stick on.
I also cut some green paper up for seaweed, and cut small fish out of holographic silver and blue card. The girls had a great time arranging all of their fish and seaweed, and sticking everything into place with glue sticks.
Once their sea pictures were complete, we printed out our own stickers using some A4 self adhesive paper, and then used trimmed down A4 holographic card and white A3 card to make some cards for their friend Sophie. The girls glued down the sparkly card onto folded A3 sheets to give the cards some fun shiny colour.
I cut out the pictures on the label sheets, and helped them to peel off the backing, so they could stick them down however they liked on the front of their cards. They both drew pictures on the inside of their cards for Sophie to enjoy.
On Monday, none of us were feeling too great and so we had a quiet day at home. Georgie has been really enjoying games recently and has been tearing up scraps of paper to make “pairs” so I thought I would cut her some cards and help her make her very own set of cards for memory games.
I measured out and drew a grid on some A3 card then cut up the cards, and she and I drew pairs of pictures on one side. We had a lot of fun and she has been enjoying using her very own cards to play “pairs” with, although she wasn’t too amused when Lydia beat her at a game!
We still have plenty of different colour papers and cards to craft with, so I will be doing some more crafting with the kids very soon, I’m sure! Thanks to Paper Cutz for the lovely paper products; the quality was fab and we really enjoyed ourselves.
