My Creative Space - Party Preparations.

I'm sneaking my Creative Space in a day early this week because I'm going to be crazily busy tomorrow and won't manage to do it otherwise.

My Creative Space this week is all about my soon to be 4 year old and her upcoming Flower Fairy Birthday Party. I am having SO much fun with the preparations for her party and so is she. She has been my little helper all day today. We've made some paper flowers from napkins.


And we made some fairy bunting using an op shopped flower fairy book that Eloise spotted (makes me so proud!). Just cut the book pages into triangles and zig zag stitch onto ribbon. So quick, so cute!


(try to ignore how badly our windows need painting. It's on the to do list!)

And these are my favourite.


Party loot bags made from another old childrens' book. There is a tutorial for making gift bags here which is roughly what I did, without all the reinforcing. I can give you measurements and instructions for  my version next week if any of you are interested? They are super simple to make. If you can wrap a present, you can make these.

A few more bits and pieces to do before the weekend's party and then it's all decorating and party fun. Can't wait!
