Welcome to Short Cuts!

Whatever crafting you're into, we'll stick with you. We'll never cut you out or tell your other half just how much you spent on crafting supplies last month. Which is just as well, because if you love scrapping, journaling, mixed media or just being creative then we have everything you need to inspire your next project.

We've got a few PHDs (projects half-done) of our own on the go, and to help get them finished we stock South Africa's widest range of crafting goods. We love our Silhouettes, but this isn't a gym, so there's no need to worry about your figure here.

You're among friends. Let's craft, create and celebrate!

A short intro about us

Short Cuts is a family-owned business run by passionate crafters. We took the same approach to building the business as we do to everything we make – handmade, with love, lots of added sparkle and that personal touch.

The only thing we enjoy more than being creative ourselves, is inspiring our friends to release their own creativity. We'd love to help you on your crafting journey – we know you will discover amazing things along the way.

Life is all about the precious moments – and the memories we have of them. Crafting lets us capture those moments so they can be treasured forever. Take the first step on your journey by visiting Short Cuts today, and let's create something magical.


Because sticking together is fun for everyone!

Short Cuts offers crafting classes for every kind of crafter – young or old, novice or expert, it's all good. Kids are natural born crafters and love learning new skills, while adults can find outlets for their creativity and new ways to express themselves. Creativity can strike at any age, and we'll help you channel it to make beautiful gifts your friends and family will treasure forever.

Drop your kids off for one of our junior crafting classes, so they can benefit from a playful but structured approach to making things. Meanwhile, our adult classes give you the chance to share ideas and get helpful tips from fellow crafters, and we include a cup of coffee to really help those crafting ideas flow!

A great cup of coffee is just like the perfect craft project – handmade with love, some creative flair – and deeply satisfying. Plus when you've finished, you'll want to go back for more!
