A little craft for a little flower

“Just living is not enough,” said the butterfly, “one must have sunshine, freedom, and a little flower.”
– Hans Christian Andersen

paperflowers-5307The school holidays are coming up and at Slanchogled we cannot think of a better art project other from making beautiful flowers out of lots of different materials. Felt, paper, crepe paper, tissue paper, foam, the materials that can be used to make flowers are endless, and each material brings its own texture making the flowers all individual. Just like a real flower.

There is something about flowers that brightens up a grey day and here at Slanchogled we have tried out a few crafts to get our customers inspired, creating, and brightening up their days too.
