A challenge was issued to create a gift item for $5 or under! I can't turn down a good challenge so I dug up items that I already had: scraps of canvas, stamps, beads, and a bit of lace. The result was a pair of artistic bracelet cuffs. One for me to keep and one to give! That's a win-win gift if you ask me!

As a public school Art teacher, I am always trying to include my passion for mixed media in my classroom. My students love to see what I do as an artist and I incorporate some of the techniques in my classroom too. Often, my kids bring me little pieces of art from home. I don't want to just say "thanks" and file them away. I have 4 clipboards that hang on one of my classroom studio walls and it just needed a finishing touch. To complete my art gallery wall, I bought some chipboard letters that are approximately 10"tall. I altered them to hang above the clipboards.

December is fast approaching! and before we know it, Christmas will be here! With that in mind, I went to town with altering this old iPad cover that I had stowed in my stash of alterables that I've been hoarding :) This cover was altered to hold wish cards for this Christmas and New Year. It can also be used to store advise cards or even to just store away the pretty things you will receive this festive season.
Here's my altered cover and a guide on how I made it look the way it does.
