We thoroughly enjoyed our Christmas bloggers day so we thought we would show what we got up to throughout the day in this crafty article!
As we were launching our fabulous Christmas collections in August, we had to make sure our decorations were top knotch for our bloggers event, including building this fireplace made of foam and cardboard to act as a festive photo prop! (Well Done Cat, this was your most impressive craft yet!)
Our bloggers day was all about revealing the beautiful Christmas collections we were releasing for 2017 as well as getting our bloggers in the festive spirit..in August. Challenging we know but we think we pulled it off!
The bloggers began decorating polystyrene wreaths with our jolly selection of First Edition Deco Mache papers. They did a fantastic job and amazingly, each one looked entirely unique. Each wreath was finished with sparkling embellishments and pinecones Claire had collected from her garden! Kirsty Allsop would have definitely been wowed by these brilliant home decor projects.
Next, we went on to make an item every Christmas dinner needs...a cracker! Maxine showed our bloggers how to use our free templates to create 3 brilliant shapes and it was definitely a success!
Inbetween craft tutorials, we made sure to replenish everyone's energy with our scrumptious buffet, mince pies and lots of popcorn! (Decorated to fit the festive theme of course)
To make this bloggers event a day to remember, we challenged our bloggers to create their own felt christmas tree decoration with the free templates provided. So many cute characters began to appear amidst the coloured felt and jingle bells including penguins and gingerbread men!
Our last craft tutorial of the day was to design a card that we would send to a charity at Christmas! The designs were so endearing and we think our chosen charity will love to receive these pretty projects.
To finish we gave each blogger a sack of goodies (way better than what santa and his elves could offer) along with a personalised mug with the sentiment, 'I'm so craft-tea!'
Thank you to all the bloggers who attended our event and for those who joined in on the fun by keeping up to date on our social media. If you'd like to see our sneaky peek of our Christmas collections, check out this article! Ooh and the free templates we used throughout the day are in our freebies folder. We will be sharing videos from the fantastic bloggers that attended soon, so make sure to keep your eyes peeled for those!
