Turn a magazine into a Christmas paper tree -my Tutorial

Hello dear readers,
I'm still alive... very busy but I can never forget to update my blog when I can because I will never stop creating and inspiring myself and most of all sharing it with people that appreciate it.
With this cold weather and with all the travelling, I ended up with a pile of magazines so this is what I did, not to waste them after a good reading. 
It's so fun and easy to make trees out of them. I hope my tutorial will inspire you to make better ones. Mine was done in less than an hour with just things I could find at home. 
A paint finish, glitters and nicer ribbons could turn then into real beauties that could be given as presents or sold at local no more talking and let's start:

Halloween candy bags - make your own

A bit late, but I wanted to show you how we made our candy bags this year.
We are having so many kids over that we decide to prepare bags to avoid candy fighting.

To do so, I used great liquid chalk markers from
The colours are so vibrant and the kids basically spent half an hours trying them and drawing before the final design.. even my little 3yrs old. The photo is very dark but it was done at night. I hope you can see my little artists drawings.
After, we sat at the table and started our scary bags:
and these are our (almost) scary bags:
With only few materials, the effect was fantastic.
