Hello, it´s Denisa. Today I´d like to share with you my handmade magnets. They´re made of ordinary jar lids. I wanted to spruce up my kitchen a little bit because it´s quite small and the only place for some flat decorations is my fridge. So decorative magnets were the right thing.

Hey there artsy peeps Rita Barakat here today! If you missed last weeks posts you might want to go and check it out. With holidays around the corner this is a great time to get creative about last minute gift wrapping ideas and we shared a lot last week! After all of that I was thinking how about those of you who say you have no time to get creative this season? Why not do a little double duty and get creative with your gift wrapping! I don't mean fancy ribbons or bows either!  I bet you thought this was a canvas? Nope it is a gift box! A 5x7, 3/4 inch deep gift box I "decorated" with my Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® products! You can create little works of art too and personalize them for the person who will be receiving this gift! It's easy, quick and I know you already have the supplies! Let's get started!
