Origami fortune teller (aka chatterbox!)

Remember these? I used to spend loads of time as a kid making paper fortune tellers. I’ve been making them with my little ones lately and they like them as much as I do.

I’ve designed this fruity version if you want to have a go! I’ve left the message area blank – it’s more fun to write your own I think!

If you are not sure how to use a paper fortune teller then check out this video by Liam. (By the way my colours are pink, purple, red and orange – represented by the fruit!).

DIY Ladybird Party Invite

Hello! I’m back and blowing the dust off this blog! Sorry it’s been so long. Life well and truly got in the way! I hope you are all well?!

I’ve seen a few of these ladybird invites around and wanted to have a go at making some. They are very cute and perfect for a summer party. (I’ve been very minimal and haven’t put any eyes on mine – but it would be easy to glue some wobbly eyes on if you wanted to).

I also thought this would make a great 30 minute craft project for young children so I’ve made a colour-in version that you can print off.

I hope you are all having a lovely summer. We are basking in the sunshine in the UK at the moment which is lovely!

Fruity note cards // Triangular envelopes

Hello! I made some fruit gift boxes and bunting ages ago and thought the design could be transferred to these note cards. The note cards are pretty cool and fold up in the same way the heart notes do.
