Hi everyone,

If you follow me on Pinterest, you’ll know I have a real obsession for two types of craft: toilet roll craft and paper plate craft.

Paper plates are incredibly cheap to buy and have so many crafty uses – they’re definitely worth purchasing next time you’re in your local supermarket or pound shop.

A few weeks ago, while we were making this awesome Dragon Mask/Puppet (which wasn’t quite a Pinterest Success!) we decided to make a few keepsakes.

I know it’s really nice to go to your local Ceramics Cafe, or make your own salt dough for this type of keepsake, but this one is incredibly cheap, looks clean and cute and will last an age (so long as it doesn’t get wet!)

We have ours hanging on the wall behind our TV, along with a few other family photos and Luke’s 1st birthday card from his Great Grandpa.

Hand print crafts are the best in my opinion. They’re easy and fun to do with children of all ages, they can be made into almost any thing with a little imagination (animals, trees/nature, faces etc) and they make great gifts for family and friends – especially the grandparents!
