Following the highly successful launches of craft collections since June 2016 including Frozen, Disney Princess, Winnie-the-Pooh and The Lion King, Create and Craft TV has once again teamed up with Character World to launch the latest range of Disney crafting products; Beauty and the Beast on sale from 18th May 2017.
This latest craft collection brings the beloved characters from the Disney live action film Beauty and the Beast to life; Belle, the Beast, Mrs Potts, Lumiere, Cogsworth and Plumette. Beauty and the Beast tells the story of Belle, who after a twist of fate arrives at an enchanted castle, becoming the prisoner of a Prince who was transformed into a hideous Beast due to his cruelty and heartlessness. The Beast must learn to gain Belle’s trust and love before it is too late. This elevated retelling of a timeless classic story is brought to life in this enchanting craft collection for all the family, bringing home the important message from the film; ‘Beauty is found within’.
This new craft collection includes character dies of Belle, her household item friends, and of course, the Beast himself, coordinating embellishment and sentiment dies and character and background scene pads. All of the dies from the range have been made using the most detailed die technology. The dies incorporate essential detail, to enable crafters to get the truest likeness to each Disney character possible through precision cutting. Using these alongside the coordinating character paper pads enables both beginners and experienced crafters to create the same professional results.
Stephanie Weightman, Creative Director at Create and Craft said “We are so excited to introduce this latest collection of craft products, with a Beauty and the Beast range launching with Create and Craft this May. These beloved characters are sure to be a hit with all the family and the designs are ideal for creating projects for all occasions. We are proud to be bringing designs from the latest live-action version of Beauty and the Beast which only opened in cinemas a couple of months ago to our collection. Giving our customers the opportunity to bring the Disney magic to life through their crafts is something we are honored to have the chance to do.”
Danny Schweiger, Joint Managing Director at Character World, said: “We’re excited to be working with Disney and Create and Craft TV to manage the launch of this new range of licensed crafting products. We’ve worked hard to ensure the products and experience will be the same high quality that customers have come to know and love from ourselves and from Disney.”
