Valentine's Day Crafts from Baker Ross

Baker Ross sent us some great crafting goodies for creating some lovely Valentine's Day or Mother's Day gifts. 

The children really enjoyed decorating heart shaped ceramic trinket boxes using some lovely, pastel coloured porcelain paints.  The heart shaped boxes are £3.49 for a box of four, which is excellent value.  They are 8cm in size and come with a fitted lid.  They can be decorated to create very personal gifts for loved ones.

The Hobbyline Brights Porcelain Paint Pots come in six bright pastel colours: orange, rose, ice green, opal blue, reseda and white.  They cost £10.99.  The paint goes on really nicely and can be baked to heat fix the design. They are the perfect medium to decorate the ceramic trinket boxes.

The kids enjoyed coming up with different designs for each of the ceramic heart trinket boxes that they decorated. Freddy wanted to make one for his big sister Ella with her name on!  Other designs involved stippling, geometric designs and dots.

The paint dries with a nice sheen, giving a great end result.  I loved Freddy's pot with a pink snowflake on top.  It is such a good way to bring out a child's creativity.

Painting the heart shaped trinket boxes was a really lovely craft activity with good end results.  They are a really great idea for making presents for mums, grandparents and other loved ones.  It would also be a lovely activity to do at a birthday party.

We also received a Spring Card Activity Set, which sells for £6.99. Each pack includes patterned and coloured card, corrugated card, pre-punched card baskets, textured and tinted paper, ribbon, decorative crystals, split pins and stickers.  There are 88 items in the pack, making it really good value. There are also instructions for projects.

It is a kit that will let children have some springtime crafting fun, making cards, decorations, models, displays and other crafts, such as this cute birdhouse.

There is so much potential for creativity and the colours and designs of the card and paper are really subtle, seasonal and nice. It is a really versatile kit encouraging children to try card and paper crafting.

The pics of the children are lovely, they look as though they are really enjoying themselves, I think Baker Ross are doing great in their endeavour to encourage children to enjoy and make craft sets for special occasions. xxxx
