Memo box - Take note

I´ve found this super cute memo box at Bellas and I had to make a box myself. I´ve changed a little bit the measurements (from cm into inches) and added a satin ribbon to lift the stack of paper. This makes it easier to grab a piece of paper.

Goodie bags with Snowman Soup

 Yesterday I´ve made 20 of these Goodie bags for the children of my bible-group. We were invited by my friends, the italian "Missionaries of the Immaculate - Father Kolbe". Tiziana made plenty of her gorgeous pizzas for us and we had a wonderful evening, eating pizza and playing Bingo. Before going home the children got the Snowman soup and they were so happy about it !

Christmas card - Origami tree

I´ve seen this orgiami christmas tree on several blogs and I had to try out one myself. It´s much easier to do than it looks like :-) I even think it´s a quick-made card for mass production.

A christmas card in brown... unusual colors for christmas but I think it turned out quite nice...

A nice idea to use rosettes for christmas cards... though this card was my idea, I´ve also seen it on some other blogs...

Christmas card - Snowman

I´ve made this Snowman-card with my students.

I´ve seen this card (in fact the snowman) on another blog, but unfortunately I can´t remember the name of the talented lady.... It´s so cute and I just had to do this snowman-card myself :-)
