Heart Weaving Blanks – pack of 10 – £2.50

DSC_3443_optThe Heart size is 17cm wide, made from card and has pre-punched holes to weave thread through. The set does not come with any thread or pens.

We designed our heart then weaved our coloured thread through the holes. It was a fun activity, that doesn’t have to be just for valentines. It’s a great way to introduce children to weaving and they can weave however they please, making new patterns each time.

The Puzzle size 14cm x 11cm and is made from 1mm thick card. They are cute little hearts that can be a card that carries a message and a gift too. Design your heart and then place it in an envelope for your secret admirer to put together again.

We also printed off a couple of our favourite pictures and using some glue stuck them onto the heart. We had to cut the pieces out again using a craft knife. I think they turned out pretty good.

Making cards and presents with a personal touch is so much better than buying something from the shops. I think it shows that you put time, thought and effort into something that is personal and made with a loving touch.

These cute these cards can be for valentines and Mothers day

The 10cm cards come in 4 assorted pre printed designs – cat, dog, bunny and a mouse. Each pack comes with envelopes. Design your card with bright colours, stick on gems and much more. My youngest enjoyed this activity as he is just getting into colouring in and learning how to stay with in the black lines. It helps with his  fine motor control.
