I have been poking around You Tube again and found a few tutorials that might be handy this time of year.
This tutorial demonstrates how you can make Paper Gift Boxes from gift wrap, recycled greeting cards or decorated paper. It is a unique way to wrap a gift!
Friday freebies is a regular series in which I highlight free resources online, free patterns and links that are of interest to fiber folks. All posts in the series are in the Friday Freebie category I hope you enjoy them.

Over on Plays With Needles Susan Eliot has come up with a great idea on how to turn your kids into angels. She has even given us as step by step tutorial … dont miss it. Jokes aside it is a great idea.

Look out for some interesting pieces from Wordcast on the craft of craft and hobby blogging. During February a series of articles will focus on how crafters in all walks of life are using the web to connect, learn and share. I am sure readers will find them interesting.
