New Tea & Ceremony Retro Camera DIY Paper Craft Kits

Visit the Tea & Ceremony Etsy shop to see my latest DIY paper craft kits. The new kits allow you to print and make a set of free-standing retro camera greetings cards.

The camera cards are available to purchase as single kits that feature one colour variation but can also be bought as a set of four so that you can make the cards in blue, coral, green and yellow.

All of the cards are free-standing when made and can be folded flat to fit inside a C6 envelope after assembly for posting.

The paper craft kit is available for instant download following purchase and the PDFs include assembly instructions. You can print the designs as often as you like so long as it is for personal use only so go ahead and create your own little display.

Fig + Sparrow

Walking around the Northern Quarter in Manchester with my partner yesterday, we stumbled across a new lifestyle store and coffee bar called Fig + Sparrow. Stocking a choice selection of goodies including items by Donna Wilson and my favourite local crafter, Nicola Rowlands, I managed to get my hands on a birthday present that I had my eye on in an online shop earlier in the week. The cafĂ© is friendly and relaxed a served a delicious thirst quenching iced tea, perfect for such a hot summer day.  After speaking to one of the lovely owners, it's obvious that they know and love great design.  I'm excited to see what they have on their shelves the next time I visit!
