How to make a Gift Bag. Pretty good - quite challenging maths activity for homeschoolers! Had to convert to metric. The kids made one each but I think if we made a few they'd get competent. Photo tute pretty good. 3/5 because quite hard for kids. But 5/5 if adults are making it as it does give a nice product.

Frugality in crafting ... homemade embossing ink. Who would have thought it was a mixture of Vaseline, cooking oil and alcohol! One reviewer said this: "I find glycerin works really well and you don't get the oily bleed that can happen with oil and petroleum jelly. You can add watercolour paint or food colouring if you want to tint it. Works like a charm."
