The Fun In Functional! {Link Party #25}

Welcome to The Fun In Functional, the weekly link party hosted on Practically Functional!

If you’re new here, I throw this party once a week on Wednesdays. It’s a place for you to see some awesome projects and find some inspiration. And if you’re a blogger, you can link up any projects you’ve been working on for the past week and show off your creativity!

Please support the blogging community by clicking through to these projects if you find something that interests you. Your visits are important to the bloggers who share their work here! If you link up to the party this week, comment on a few other blogs as well. There’s no downside to networking with other bloggers and finding new ideas!

Last week’s most popular project was this Tree Of Thanks shared on The Simple Things:

I love the idea of making tiny boxes out of Christmas cards! It’s a great way to hold onto those cards for a little longer, and tiny boxes are always awesome!
