Get Crafty-National Stationery Week


Today is Day Two of National Stationery Week!

Just in case you didn’t catch yesterday’s National Stationery Week post for Pen and Pencil Day, have a nose HERE-Pen And Pencil Day-National Stationery Week!
Throughout this week, I’ll be sharing a post a day on here, with some of my top choices for your stationery needs, and some of our family favourites!

Today’s theme is Get Crafty!


Today we’re featuring a craft session with my littlest kidlet, some giant black paper from Hobbycraft and some fab metallic and chalk style pens from Edding!.




Olivia loves drawing the moon and stars-so the black paper from Hobbycraft gets used a lot!  We used the white chalk marker (which we also use on our family notice black board), the gold metallic pen and the silver metallic pen.



The Edding Chalk Marker, contains non-permanent ink that can be easily wiped off with a damp cloth. We use ours on our blackboard and black paper, but it can be used on almost all non-porous surfaces, such as glass, dark paintings and mirrors. Ideal for bold and prominent text, the water based, liquid chalk is odourless and is easy to use, aiding smooth writing and drawing.


Currently over on Amazon priced at £5.04*, this is a great chalk pen and well worth the money!  Click HERE to buy!

The Edding Gold PaintMarker is so easy to use.  You just give it a shake and press the nib down, and the metallic gold colour is released, ready for you to use!  It’s ideal for writing, marking and labelling on almost all materials including metal, plastic and glass. The ink is quick-drying and waterproof and gives excellent adhesion and a high wear resistance on almost all surfaces.  The colour against the black paper we use, also gives an incredible shine (perfect for drawing stars)!
