Fairytale Things

If you're anything like me, January-March are hard months to get through. Between the short days and the cold nights, I sometimes feel like a zombie who has been cooped up in the house for far too long. So, the other day I decided to put my little cupcake down for a nap and flex my often neglected creative muscle.I have this great little book that I picked up for scrapbooking ideas called, Fairytale Things To Make and Do. It's part of the Usborne series, and is filled with all kinds of wonderful projects to make and create with your kids. Some of the activities might be a little hard for younger children to do by themselves. However, if you have some patience, love and scrapbooking supplies, it should be a piece of (cup)cake.
I decided to try the hardest project in the book first (a paper Cinderella), which took me about 1 hour to get it exactly right. (Don't you just love her leopard-print clutch)? With easy-to-follow instructions, and big beautiful pictures, it's hard to go wrong. Best of all, it comes with two pages of matching stickers to help create your fairytale design. This book is perfect for a gloomy day spent indoors. So turn off the TV and create something fun. Happy crafting!

I SOOOOOO love this! I bought a similar book a while back, when I was at Dover Castle. It's so cute. Now all I need are some nieces to spoil with it!
