Crafts with Wilkinson

Another contributor to our Easter party's craft materials is Wilkinson, and they have provided some gorgeous and useful materials as well to make our Easter party successful! They have a wide selection of craft papers, including A4 sized Fluorescent Coloured Sheets (35 sheets pad for £0.55), Holographic Cards in assorted colours (8 a pack for £1.10) and Corrugated papers in assorted colours (8 per pack for £1), all gorgeous to make baskets and other crafts. You can even shred them for special effect straws! My favourite is the holographic cards, they have beautiful patterns that 'moves'! I was staring at the purple card and loved it so much I didn't want to use it! I'll just have to close my eyes when Abby eventually use it for her crafts. My sister in law made a golden basket with the gold colour one and it was absolutely beautiful!

Their Craft Time Glue Stick (£1) was a big help for most of our paper sticking. Although a Wilkinson brand, it was as good as the major brand I used to use when I was still a student. They've also sent Abby a craft apron with sleeves (£3.05, assorted) to use, which I was very pleased with! The apron covered her body and arms up completely, and she can be as messy as she wants to be (all 3 of her school tops are covered with ink spots for some reason) with it on. She did complain about the new plastic smell, which just required some aerating and washing to remove.

For decorating the Easter eggs, they have sent us Butterflies and Flowers Stickers (£1) that were the most popular craft material used at the party, and a pack of gorgeous blue and pink Fabric Butterflies (pack of 40 in assorted sizes for £0.85) that has a rainbow reflection effect. Needless to say, our Easter eggs were covered with Spring flowers and lovely butterflies fluttering all over them!
