Santa's Magic Key has arrived!!

Does your house not have a chimney? Are your children wondering how santa will get in the house?

If you love the spirit of Christmas and want to keep it alive and magical then why not check out Santa's Magic Key?

It is a magical key which you can display throughout the Christmas season and then Christmas Eve leave the key in the porch or have your children put it outside before bed. The key is magic, only Santa can use it! In the morning watch your children's faces be amazed as the key has returned to it's cabinet and the presents have been laid out!

The key comes in a festively decorated cabinet so that you can have this item on display along with your other Christmas ornaments instead of just using it for Christmas Eve. The cabinet is free standing or you can mount it to a wall if you wish. The key itself is individually cut out of wood and is decorated with magic Christmas sparkles.

It can be used year after year and really keep that Christmas magic alive!

If you would like to order one then don't delay as they are in demand and in short supply! They cost £10.50 each plus £2.00 postage. Santa's Magic Key and Cabinet are unique to Calico Cards, you will not find this anywhere else.

Feel free to contact me or to check out my facebook page for more information www.facebook.com/calico.cards

Santa's Magic Key- Update!

We are working away here like busy little elves for the Christmas season! Santa's Magic Key will be released later this week!

Father Christmas likes to visit good little girls and boys every Christmas Eve and leave them presents. His preferred way to do this is to pop in through the chimney with his big bag of gifts, however, more and more houses now do not have chimneys or if they do then the fire may still be hot so Santa cannot get down it.

Children may wonder how Father Christmas can get into their house to leave them their special gifts if he cannot use a chimney well this is where the magic key comes in!

The magic key is very special, it is made just for Father Christmas and can be left outside/in the porch on Christmas Eve and he will be able to use it to let himself into the house- but only he can enter with it, nobody else can!

The magic keys that we are making here are very special as they can be used throughout the festive season as a decoration so not just put out on Christmas Eve but can be displayed before that too.

There will be two variations of the key so that you can have the option as to which one you would like:

1. A magical key which comes with a special key cabinet to store it in safely on the run up to Christmas. This key cabinet will be decorated in festive colours and embellished with glittery motifs. The cabinet can actually hold 3 magic keys so you could always buy more than one should you wish. The cabinet is free standing so can fit on a shelf or mantel piece or you could mount it to the wall it's completely up to you!

2. A magical key which comes with a festively decorated plaque for you to hang the key from on the run up to Christmas. This plaque will be painted in Christmassy colours and embellished with glittery seasonal motifs. It will need to be fixed to a wall or door but is only very light so just blue tac alone will secure it.

Photographs of the two key options will be available later in the week as well as prices.

Stock will be in limited supply and so if you are interested please get in touch soon!

The design of the key and the plaque will be completely unique to us here at Calico Cards so you will not be able to get this anywhere else!

Nursery bunting

After a few busy days I have logged on to upload a photo of my latest bunting which was made for a friend's nursery.

I enjoy making the wooden bunting, it's nice to know that it will be used to add some colour and focal point to a special room in a house :)

I am working on making some bunting to say 'Happy new Year' just trying to think of a good colour scheme for this! Any suggestions welcome!

Here's pictures of the wooden bunting for a new baby!
