Safari Print Paper Animals
Wild looking safari print paper animals look brilliant dangling from the shelves of bookcases and cupboards. Also try them dangling from large indoor plants. This will give your plants an extra special boost to their appearance. Create your very own indoor jungle, and enjoy the company of your newly created safari print paper animals. Invite some other crafters around, the more the merrier, have a chat and a cup of tea whilst your hands are busy at work.
