Summer Craft Competition 2011

With a chance to win one of three prizes for you and your little one, why not get them involved in some crafty fun over the summer holidays. All you have to do is get your child to create a picture incorporating a fingerprint, hand or footprint. You’re welcome to give them some help or enter yourself too. The catagories for entries are as follows:

0-2 years

3-5 years

6+ years, or

Mums and Dads!

The winning entry for each catagory will receive a £20 voucher to redeem against any Vintage Charm Company product for Mum or Dad, and an age appropriate gift for the winning artist. To get you started, we’ve put some examples in our new album called “Summer Craft Competition” for inspiration.

To enter, send your entry with your child’s name and age on the front of their picture and address along with your contact number on the back and post to: The Vintage Charm Company, PO Box 16024, Bromsgrove, B60 9GX.

We can’t wait to receive your entries and display them in our studio to brighten up our summer (let’s face it, we’ll need it with the British weather!)

Your children are welcome to use crayons, felts, paints or maybe even create a collage. It’s up to them to be as creative as they like and use any materials they choose! Entries should be sent to us no later than 10th September 2011. We will judge the entries and post details of the winners on our facebook and twitter pages shortly afterwards.

Have fun creating your pictures!

Lots of Love,

The VCC Team x
