Using masking fluid, a ruling pen and your favourite summer colours, you can create a unique, bright and summery greeting card.

At Slanchogled we love to experiment and masking fluid allows you the freedom to try out a design and then quickly rub away what doesn’t work, leaving no trace.Post photos july2

Once you’ve settled on a design or message simply add your favourite colours and the message will be left beneath.

Watercolour adds a beautiful sense of freedom and lightness to your card – capturing the joy of summer for you to share with a loved one.

Glass Jars

19 Dec

Ranging from tiny to large, our jars are a great start to a creative project. Whether it be for Christmas or general, our jars can be transformed into many crafts or be used for many purposes.

Fill them with oils, herbs, dried flowers or put small trinkets inside.

They are a great way of storing and showing off items, or even perhaps using the small jars for jewellery themselves.

A Krafty Delight

11 Dec

“Brown paper packages tied up with strings. These are a few of my favourite things”


Wrapped up presents carefully placed beneath the Christmas tree bring about a feeling of excitement and wonder. Have the small ones got jewellery inside, or perhaps a fluffy jumper in the larger one. What ever it may be, when we see a beautifully decorated box our imaginations are free to run wild as to what may lie inside.


At Slanchogled we have a large selection of kraft paper boxes in a variety of shapes and sizes perfect for wrapping and decorating for Christmas. With a dash of some wrapping paper, a sprinkle of raffia and a final touch of a colourful tag these boxes will stand out beneath even the biggest tree.

They are also ideal for some winter crafts. We have pre-cut doll houses ready to decorated to your delight. Perhaps you could make Santa’s workshop? Or a Christmas house decorated with lights and snow? You could place the reindeer’s on the roof or make a magical house filled with toys and some of our charm teddy bears. The possibilities are endless to make this season filled with creativity.

A Visit from Santa

Father Christmas has been very busy this year but he has taken the time to stop off at Slanchogled and drop off a few magical gifts ready to give to the young children who are anticipating the sound of reindeer’s hoofs on their roof.


We have beautiful gift sets for both young boys and girls. Collaging, glitter boards, colouring in, stamping and many many more. They all have beautiful and bright illustrations guaranteed to be a hit with the kids.

And why not get the children to be creative as well. We have a large selection of folded card and envelopes in a variety of colours where they can stamp, cut, draw or paint a festive Christmas card. Or even to write their very own letter to Father Christmas.
