Peter Pan was a character created in 1902 by J.M Barrie, his character is a magical one as he is a boy that can fly and will not grow up because he refuses to. So you'd think that Peter Pan crafts would include him in this article, but you would be wrong. Hold your horses though...
It is interesting to note when Peter Pan was created as a character because most of us will fondly remember him more for the Disney film, Walt Disney's Peter Pan from the 1950's or the more recent film Hook in the 1990's.
One of Peter Pans motley crew is a small fairy called Tinker Bell who is mischievous and fun. Tinker Bell crafts has over time become just as huge as the Peter Pan crafts for people who have their favorites from the story so today it is a Tinker Bell craft we have for you.
