A Gift for Everyone on Your List

I know what you're thinking right now....same ole, same old. But that's because you don't know what's inside this cutey pie little tin! If my friend, Stephanie, were here, she would talking up a storm to these little guys! "What? You want to come home with me? Oh, I'd love for you too! Wouldn't you look so sweet on my refrigerator holding up my child's artwork? You sure do!" (Um, Yeah. Stephanie and her projects really do talk to each other. I have witnesses.)

Now I would love to brag and tell you how smart and creative I am and pretend that this whole thing was my idea but you know better! This is my take on on the projects Andrea Walford featured on her Twelve Weeks of Christmas emails. I don't think you can still access any of the individual projects but she has made a dvd available of all the projects, I think.

The tin above contains twelve glass magnets and is my Christmas version. The reason I made a slew of the them is because you don't have to be really smart to do them! Here's the secret:

Pick any pack of Designer Series Paper and punch a 1-3/8" circle out of EACH of the designs. DUH! There's no coordinating or thinking involved. And Stampin' Up has already told you what papers go with it so go wild! Make your own! Here's a ton more that I made this weekend for gifts. Some of them are retired paper. If you really like one, contact me and I'll put together a kit for you to be able to make it.

Hope you like my gifts for everyone on your list! Please leave me a comment. It's gets a little lonely in cyberspace, you know! I'll pretend you're here and you can pretend I made you a glass of sweet tea.

I was inspired by Andrea as well. My glass discs were at my doorstep when I arrived home from work today. I love your take on her project. Each set is beautiful. Can't wait to give it a try! Did you use DVD tins?

Thanks for the inspiration!

These are just adorable. Can you tell me where you got your glass for the magnet. All I have ever seen come in bags of all different sizes.
Thanks for Sharing.
