Just a quick post to let you know that the Ribbon Girls are running a special competition
Just for kids aged 16 and under
We know lots of you like to make cards or do various other crafts when your Mums, Aunties, Grandmas, Nannas, carers and big sisters and so on are making cards or colouring in so we thought it would be nice to have a special challenge JUST FOR KIDS!
The challenge will run from 11am Sunday 15th December until 9pm on Saturday 28th December.
The winners will be announced on New Years Eve - we're sure you will have some time to fill in before Christmas and maybe some spare time between Christmas and New Year - you might even be hoping to get some new craft things in your Christmas stocking and this is a great opportunity to put them to good use.
There will be 3 prizes of crafty goodies and the challenge will be judged by 3 well known UK crafters
Dawny Phillips freelance designer, craft tutor and TV presenter for Lili of the Valley
Kath Stewart well known Freelance Craft Designer, Craft Tutor & Demonstrator for Fiskars
Andrea Gourley - Craft Designer and Teacher
The winners will have their project displayed here on our blog, on The Ribbon Girl Facebook Page and on the front page of The Ribbon Girl online store website on New years Day, 1st January 2014 - you could be famous!
You can enter any type of project, for example you could make a card - could be a thank you card, a birthday card, a get well soon card, do a drawing or painting, a piece of knitting, bead work, embroidery, crochet or sewing - in fact, any type of craft you like to do as long as it is your own work. No need to send us the project, just ask an adult to photograph it for you and put your project on their craft blog so they can enter it for you using the inlinks button below - don't worry if you don't have a blog, just get an adult to email a photo of your project to Mary and she will enter it for you - let us have your name, age and an email address so we can make contact if you are chosen as the winner.
Good luck everyone and we're really looking forward to seeing all of your fabulous projects
g e t c r a f t i n !!!
Have a lovely week and lot of fun with crafting!
