    My top craft tip is that I always wear latex gloves when using pen or glue. I always used to smudge my work, or get glue everywhere, so this is really good to prevent this and to help get a good grip when colouring or painting a piece.

  2. Heather Haigh says

    never throw anything pretty away – as soon as I do I can guarantee I think of somethink I could have used it for

  3. Sandra Clarke says

    I always look for bits & pieces at Car Boot Sales to use for crafts. I once found a load of craft stamps, mainly new, which were very cheap.

  4. Kathy D says

    Make sure you have the card round the right way before starting. HOW MANY OF US HAVE MADE UPSIDE DOWN CARDS – or is it just me


    i use olf magazines and yogurt pots to make things with
    . and look in the poundshop for cheap craft activites and craft things

  6. felicity smith says

    always have a surface bigger than you think you need. Nothing will frustrate you as much as a tiny table or square to work in and not be able to lay things out

  7. Allan Wilson says

    Collect sea glass every time you visit the beach and use to decorate tea light holders etc. The kids love it.

  8. Laura Wheatley says

    use modpodge, its amazing stuff, I cover things in paper or fabric and it makes them waterproof

  9. Hayley Todd says

    I keep a crafting inspiration notebook, which i fill with clippings from magazines, sketches, and ideas I see for my crafting sessions.

  10. susan willshee says

    be tidy and organised with your craft goodies – I often buy things and then ‘lose’ them. I spend as much time searching for the things I’ve bought as I do actually using them :-)

  11. Emma Wolski says

    Take it slow and don’t rush! I always make mistakes when making cards as I don’t allow myself time to enjoy it!

  12. Sue Brett says

    Cut buttons off old clothes before you throw them away, and sort and store in small jars – they come in useful for many different craft projects

  13. Lynn Heath says

    When the kids are getting crafty I always lay newspaper over the table and I have some plastic sheets that go under the table in an attempt to save the carpet!!!!

  14. Hazel Rea says

    Don’t be afraid to experiment, and embrace ideas that evolve as the project progresses! You might be surprised at the results.
