Here is an excerpt of one of the reviews on www.amazon.com
Fun ideas for entertaining, but to also amuse little ones on rainy days. I liked the variety of designs, ..... An iron is quite helpful. The diagrams are detailed and easy to follow, even for the more complex folds. Having a finished photograph is an additional help in showing various table settings as well.

In our circle of friends the kids always create oneÂ handmade gift for everyone, it's aÂ great tradition since it instills the idea thatÂ Christmas is all about gifting from the heart.Â
Instructions for DIY: Flower Magnets
I like their idea of re-cycling old jewelryÂ - it would look cool on my fridge.
PS a little money saving tip - I always get those shopping lists with the magnet on the back to put onÂ my fridge ($1 at the Dollar Store or at Michael's) Â - well, just re-cycle and re-use that magnet when you're done with the list.
I hope you wereÂ inspired by this week's holiday gift guideÂ and
liked the easy DIY project for you and the kids.
See you next Friday for more ideas for
