Getting ready for the Olympics: Super Glittery Union Jack Flags

Last month, Daisy and I were sent a fantastic Canon Pixma printer and the Creative Park Premium software to review. It couldn't have come at a better time, what with the torrential rain we have been subjected to recently, and we have spent many a day indoors, hiding from the miserable grey skies, staying warm and dry and getting our craft on. Owwwww!

During the Jubilee weekend, we blogged about making beeeeaaaauuutiful Royal crowns, and today we kept on with our British theme and made some super glittery Union Jack flags to wave at the telly once the Olympics have started in ten days time.

Creative Park Premium, which we used for this project, comes with the purchase of any Canon Pixma printer and it really is a genius piece of software to have if you like crafting but have limited time! It is constantly updated with ideas of things to make, and gives you all the instructions you need to make them which is fab for a busy mama that doesn't have long periods of time to devote to being crafty.

We spent 40 minutes making our flags today, and I always find that 30-40 minutes is the ideal duration for craft sessions with pre-schoolers. We printed off the flag pieces and instructions, carefully cut out the templates and chose to glam ours up with lots of glue and glitter before putting the pieces together and coming up with this bad boy!!!!

Daisy was delighted with it..... can you tell? xoxox
