Paper crafts

Crafting with paper is very cheap and easy, with many options from simple origami decorations to more complex vases, or storage boxes. Paper crafting tutorials are especially straightforward with folds marked and technique details clearly described. Working with coloured paper or card is also easy and enjoyable for children.

You can also use paper to create artwork or flower decorations for your home or as a gift. Homemade gifts are a thoughtful way to show you care. Your friends and family will appreciate the time and effort put into a present made just for them. There are so many different types of crafting tutorials, from paper crafts to home decoration ideas, using techniques such as weaving, painting, sewing and knitting. You can find lots of craft tools in our supplies store, from complete project packs to specific items, it's all just a click away.

Crafting ideas for kids

To craft is to create, and creativity encourages fine motor skills, patience and teaches us how to follow instructions. Starting from toddler age, children can start with simple crafting tutorials, with the help of an adult. Cereal boxes are a perfect crafting material for young kids, they can make different shaped blocks, robots or simple costumes. Older kids can personalise their creations, make decorations for their bedroom or design a hair band or jewellery. For birthday parties, kids can choose their own theme and help to create unique decorations, such as banners or paper balloons. 

Crafts for decorating your home

Crafting for your home can be as simple as customising napkins or flowerpots and as advanced as making furniture. Tutorials walk you through the entire process, so even if you are tackling a complicated design, you can't go wrong. Sometimes you want those finishing touches in just the right colour or you can't buy exactly what you had in mind; crafting your own home decor pieces means your ideas come to life and as an extra bonus, you save money too! Creating decorations for special occasions, such as parties, Christmas or Easter is fun for the whole family.
