We were sent a My Clippy set for my 8 year old daughter to test out and review. In the end it turned into a 3 generation girlie session as my mum and I joined in the fun!
The set comes with everything except glue and scissors to make customised panels for the handbag. The instructions are very simple (although of course my daughter rushed ahead without looking!). I dug out my scrapbooking tape as this turned out to be the best adhesive to use.
You simply select backgrounds to fit on the card, cut to shape, clip with the embossing tool if required and then stick together. As my daughter got going she got more and more creative and inventive with her choices and combinations. Granny and I got to make some suggestions of our own too.
The kit included plenty of variety in terms of backgrounds and push out shapes for a range of cards. They suggest cutting out pictures from magazines or adding photos to really make it your own.
My daughter was happy just using the bits that came with the kit. She decorated both sides of each card as the bag is see-through and each one was very different. There are still plenty of materials left so that if she gets bored of what she has created she can make new ones.
Having discovered that the bag was a perfect size for her Ninentdo DS she carried it around with her all weekend. Apparently the only thing she would change would be to change the straps from silver to pink!
This is a great tween crafting set and having found them on Amazon for £14.83 I think they are well worth the money if your girl is creative. I may be tempted to create my own card too!
