Make your own goody bag this Autumn

Make your very own waterproof goody bag to carry all of your discoveries that you find on autumn walks. Why not include some leaves in the layers of your bag and try to find the same shapes on your walk.

 

 

This goody bag is also a great idea for Halloween! Are you going trick or treating this year? Why not make your very own goody bag to carry all of your treats, you could even make one to match your costume.

You will need:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  • Cling Film
  • Collage materials: Tissue Paper, Cellophane, Paper, Feathers, Leaves

Step 1 

Cut a length of cling film roughly 60cm long.

Step 2

 

Sprinkle the collage materials onto the cling film, don’t put everything in at once as you will be creating layers to make your bag strong enough to hold lots of treats.

Step 3

 

 

Cut another piece of cling film and place over the top of your previous piece, this should hold all the decorations in place.

 

 

Step 4

 

 

Repeat steps 2 and 3 another 4 times. You should end up with 6 layers of cling film.

Step 5

 

 

Once you have added all the decorations you want to your bag. Fold over the edges to create a neat seam and keep all the decorations in place.

 

 

Step 6

 

 

Fold the whole thing in half like a book, then cellotape along the side and along the bottom. You will need to fold the cellotape over the two sides of the bag. Put your hand inside the bag to check for any holes.

Step 7

 

 

Create a handle by cutting 30cm of cling film. Along one edge place some decoration, fold over approx. 3cm.  Add some more decorations along the fold and fold again, repeat this until you have run out of cling film. This should then be strong enough to form a handle.

 

 

Step 8

 

 

Cellotape the two ends of the handle to the inside of the bag, make sure it is secure so that you don't loose all of your goodies.

Your bag is now finished and ready to hold all your amazing goodies, whether it be leaves and conkers or yummy surprises from Halloween.

Lovely class ??‍???‍???

Such a lovely Time today. Nothing too much to ask from Alexis and certainly felt very safe and comfortable in current circumstances! I only wish I could have come when my twins were smaller and could move less! Would love to come back for another session- thank you!

We had a lovely session, and made some beautiful keepsakes. Alexis made us feel welcome and she was helpful when needed but also let us get on with things ourselves.

Get crafty in a relaxed

Get crafty in a relaxed, stress-free and supportive atmosphere with a lovely, friendly group of people. There is of course, the added bonus that you get to take your creation home!!

Creative fun had by all!

My youngest daughter loves her weekly session at The Creation Station! Splashsuits are provided to keep the little ones clean and the class is held in a COVID safe environment. Great, creative fun for children and parents to have together, we just wish the time didn't go so quickly!

Can’t wait to go again!

I went along to a baby creation station session. I’m not the most creative person but thought it would be fun for my baby. Had the best time and made some brilliant little keepsakes and the host Alexis was great and gave me so ideas, the cake and coffee was a bonus too! Booked in for the Xmas keepsakes session and can’t wait!! Thanks so much for a lovely morning

Holiday Club

My two girls came to the Creation Station holiday club and absolutely LOVED it, wore their creations the whole evening and talked about their day none stop. Claire is incredible with the kids and we will not hesitate to book our girls on to more of her Holiday sessions! Thank you!
