Get That Holiday Feeling!
If you’re planning on giving someone money for a trip or holiday but don’t want to put it in the obligatory envelope, Liska from dekotopia.net has just the right idea for you!
The banknotes are packed behind the glass as a landscape and the mini models add the finishing touches. This gift of money becomes an eyecatcher to remind you that you’ll be off on holiday sometime soon. And when the holiday is over and the money has been spent, you can put one of your holiday snaps in the frame as a souvenir.
Cool pins for your notes!
DIY: Make your own pinboard! Order is a must. Or should be. Let's say it would be nice if things were tidy. Especially at the workplace, Liska from dekotopia.net thinks order is very important, even though she would rather describe herself as a "creative chaotic person". Liska shows how to create an individual pinboard in alpine style with cow pins in the handicraft instructions so that you and Liska can have order in the office and on the desk! If you would also rather have a "cow pasture on the wall" instead of a "pigsty on the desk", you'd better get started right now!
The mountain is calling!
Do you also have notes piling up on your fridge? Then you can use this to keep things tidy right away! We've all been there, notes upon notes and they all need to be pinned to the fridge as a reminder. Liska from dekotopia.net has a great idea for DIY fridge magnets with mountain climbers, which she shows you here!
