Crafternoon in Washington Square Park

Do they look real yet?When you do a crafternoon, it’s best to think about things to do that are collaborative, easy to pick up and put down, and are hard to mess up. So, on Saturday afternoon, some friends and I gathered in Washington Square Park to play and make a craft that checks all those boxes: paper flowers!

Picnic & Craft SuppliesSupplies came from all over: left over dyed coffee filters from the Sweet Paul Makerie, a kit from Paper Source, and my May Whimseybox kit. I don’t know about you, but my crafting cupboard runneth over, and this was stuff I wasn’t going to use anyways, so it made sense to use it. Unlike my cookie party, it was a really thrifty & quick way to throw a party. Make hosting a crafternoon more affordable by using supplies you already have. [tweet it!]
