Today is the day it all starts. There are so many restrictions on what words we can use for this mass event that starts today, so we have decided not to use any!! But we are sure you will understand, we are holding an alternative event to the one that starts today. So if you get a little bored of watching ALL 24 channels the BBC are offering, then pull out your scissors, pots of glue and colouring pens and join us with Crafting for Gold.
Over the next two weeks we have different sponsors who have awarded us fantastic prizes, to win these prizes you need to visit our Inspiration blog here
Just follow the instructions on the blog to enter for the prizes. You can enter everyday and the winners will be picked by random org after the Closing Ceremony. You will have to check that you are a winner, we will NOT contact you.
Let's start the Crafting for Gold fun, our event for today is RIBBON.
We have a truly wonderful sponsor - the best in the ribbon world........................
That's right, it is Crafty Ribbons - yeah, as we hear the crowd roar as we enter the stadium - Team CR has arrived!
You could win a whopping £25 to spend on our website, just for putting your name on the list! Our design girls have come up with some super creations for this Opening Ceremony, please pop over to the Inspirtation blog just to have a look.
This is my creation - just from ribbons and a button.............
I think Team CR, with it's youngest team member, Mollie, could be the winner of the first gold medal......................
Look how pround Mollie is of her medal as she holds it up to the camera.
Pure gold medal - ribbon gold that is! I glittered one of our heart buttons here and used bits of gold ribbon. The instructions for this medal can be found here. Mollie loved her medal so much that Rachie rang me last night to say that Mollie insisted on taking it to bed with her!! How wonderful.
Please feel free to share your Ribbon creations on our facebook page here, or join in with our current Challenge here. We love to see what everyone makes, with the school holiday upon us, why not get the children crafting. Our 3 monsters love to craft!
We hope you enjoy our Crafting for Gold event, it will be running until the 12 August. Check back to see what event it is tomorrow and of course what prize is up for grabs.
