This Thursday the Museum of the University of St Andrews (MUSA) team will be getting in the mood for Christmas with some quick and easy crafts. From 1-2.30pm in the MUSA Learning Loft we will be creating Christmas decorations from the everyday items you have to hand at home including wrapping paper, paper tags and card. From these humble items, and with a little glue, a few staples and a bit of cutting, you will learn how to make a decorative star, a variety of ball-balls (decoupage and origami), gifts tags and pop-up Christmas cards.
No prior skills are required, as many of the crafts merely involve manipulating paper in simple but effective ways, but an enthusiasm for getting a tiny bit messy and a desire to get into the Christmas spirit is preferred!
So come along and get your creative juices flowing!
