Oh you can’t beat a simple leaf craft – easy, thrifty, abundant. And of course I love homemade cards, I like their homemade-ness, their less than perfectness and heartful-ness.

To make a card like this you simply need

clear glue

an artists marker (mine was running out and i got it all over me but you get the gist)

Leaves are of course always in abundance which makes this a year round nature craft too.

 

This was such a treat to make for my lovely other half-  13 years today!

We have had so much fun making simple Easter crafts.

We just love being Bostik bloggers. Each month a fabulous box of crafting goodies arrives with some lovely Bostik products and we are urged to get creative.

This month’s box was filled with the colours of Spring and just cheered us up no end!

Easter is in site and we embraced the pastels and set to crafting. Would you like to see what we made?

 

Easter wall hanging

We made a beautiful Easter wall hanging for our kitchen wall.

First of all we decided to use felt as our wall hanging base and gathered some bits we wanted to include.

Pipe cleaners are tricky to attach and we needed it to hang strongly so we used masking tape here.

The blu tack was perfect for attaching straw stalks.

The fine and wide glu pen from Bostik  is so great when you want to be precise and it dries clear. It beats PVA by miles!! So much neater.

 

Our wall hanging was soon completed.

What else did we make?

Do you like this beautiful card made byusing clear easy to apply Bostik glue and lots of Easter-y bits and bobs. Perfect!

simple easter crafts, simple easter basket

Well you can’t have Easter without an Easter basket. Lise fashioned the basket out of rolling paper. She used  blu tack to affix the eggs to the base and used the Bostik  glue to affix the cheery yellow handle. It is so cute.

Using the Bostik glue Lise attached twine to the back of a cut of card and a lovely butterfly and made me this cute inspirational card for my notice board.

In return I also took a cut of card and some Bostik glue and made my little book worm a spring inspired bookmark.

We love to make each other things.

We are now totally ready for Spring!

The cute little Chocolate Jazzies take just 60 seconds to prepare and are a taste sensation. Children love to get involved with these and you only need chocolate and hundreds and thousands.

These are a lovely treat or a fabulous little gift idea for teacher or mothers day you simply need a little cellophane and a ribbon

Simple.
