What we do

An inspiration for parties & play, we pride ourselves on making activities & gifts you'll love to give, & children will love to receive. 

Nostalgic, chic, simple & inherently satisfying, crafts draw upon a palette of raw materials from lolly sticks to boxes, & from twine to felt. Wave goodbye to all that plastic!

Crafts are carefully designed to spark learning & play in a fun & imaginative way. A world of make believe is ready to be uncovered.

Activities are perfect for party bags, stocking fillers, wedding day activities, travelling & rainy days.

About me

Cotton Twist was set up my me, Anne-Clare, in 2015 after the birth of my third child. With my older two constantly at parties, I started to tire of the plastic rubbish they brought home in party bags.

I think it's fair to say I have never been one to keep it simple...

Why buy a cake when you could stay up until all hours making one? Why purchase a birthday card when you could rummage through the craft drawer and create one.? Why just read inspiring blogs when you could write your own?

True to form then, I channelled my 'excess energy' into a raft of products and activities to spark creativity in the sphere of gifts and celebrations.

Having spent time in a monster sized corporate and a small entrepreneurial business, I felt I had the best of both worlds behind me. Time to put my creativity in motion.
