The 'Original' Creative Crafting Magazine written by Crafters, for Crafters

Creative Crafting magazine began in August/September 2009, when a group of crafting friends on the Creative Connections network decided that it would be a good idea to raise awareness of the crafting community. From this point they started work and the first issue of Creative Crafting was published in October 2009 and are still publishing today.

Followers of our Facebook page and Twitter Account may have seen that we now offer product reviews. This can either be your creations, your service or your course/workshop etc.
If you would like us to conduct a review for you further information can be found on our website.
Depending on how many products we get submitted we may offer single or multiple reviews per issue.

Our first review is for:

Alex from Dinky Things (based in Surrey, UK) sent us one of her papercuts to review. Her Owl and the Pussycat one to be precise. As with all of our reviews it starts from when it arrives through the door. Safely presented with a Dinky Things sticker on the front to show where it had come from. Nice Touch Alex. On opening the envelope we saw that the item had been carefully wrapped in tissue paper with a nicely designed label attached.

Here is how Alex described this piece to us.

“This is my Owl and Pussycat piece. Inspired by the nursery rhyme, it is cut from pearlescent paper and mounted on textured card. This is one of a series of nursery rhyme cuts I do.”

Here is the item itself. A very carefully created piece that is sure to bring delight to any that behold it. Alex offers a varied range of pieces including some rather stunning family tree papercuts. These would definitely be worth a look if you are after something with that special personalised feel.
The price for the reviewed cut is £35 without a frame.

At first glance the price seems quite high but not when you consider the time and skill that has gone in to creating the item. So if you want something created just for you or your family that is just that bit different pop on over to Dinky Things and meet Alex.
