More than 95% of Flamingo Paperie’s products are produced in the UK using UK sourced, environmentally accredited materials.

Some of My Favourite New Flamingo Paperie Designs!

Such a cute design for young pony lovers this 6×6 matt textured design by artist Tim Mason reminds me of The Moomins, one of my favourite childhood cartoons.

These 6×6 matt textured and embossed Bunny designs by  artist Mikki Butterley are ideal for a young baby or toddler’s birthday.

Blue Bunny Card Design

Pink Bunny Card Design

This gorgeous matt textured and “flittered” Patisserie design by artist Victoria Nelson is my final choice. It takes me back to my favourite weekend pastime when I was living and working in France in my early 20s; languishing in a French cafe enjoying a delicious Mille-feuille or Tarte au Citron. Those were the days! “Flitter” is bio-degradable glitter by the way.

Fancy a Challenge?

Why not try your hand at paper crafting? Our life-sized 3D paper model labrador will keep you entertained for hours. This Craft Kit contains 28 sheets of 270gsm card with printed templates, high adhesion craft glue, sticks for glue application, scissors and scoring tool.

All of our paper craft kits are aimed at adults and teens. Any under 12s would need to be supervised.

Get Creative With Paper Chains

Who doesn’t love festive paper chains?

Whether you just love crafting or are looking for ideas to keep the children entertained over the Christmas season, you’ll love these suggestions. Our team of Phoenix Traders weren’t happy to just form a garland out of their paper chain packs. They started to experiment with more creative options and this is what they have come up with.

Creating with Paper Chains : 

Absolutely love this Christmas wreath by Nichola Hannaford.

These hanging hearts from trader Su Pierce are super easy to make and using different paper would be great for Valentines Day too.

If you live in or around Verwood, I have a large selection of Christmas paper chains for you to choose from. They come in packs of 144 links for £4. When made up this equates to 12 metres of paper chain.
If you’d like to pop in to buy some, please e-mail me at sarah.l.gifford@gmail.com stating which of the two items above you plan to make. I will include instructions for making your chosen item with each pack.
