Diva Challenge 248: The Gift of Zentangle

I was quite pleased when I saw the topic of this week's challenge, because I've been making tangled gifts right and left since October!
First off, I am giving many of the women on my list tangled magnets, made according to a tutorial I shared here.
Here is a small sampling of a few waiting to be wrapped.

Next, I am packaging most of these in folded boxes like this one
And, once again, I have basic instructions - including a link to a nice tutorial - right here
Most of the people who read this blog are tanglers and won't be interested in coloring my designs, but I did include downloadable templates with and without the tree, in color and black and white. 

Finally, I made a birthday card for a dear friend from this tile

Unfortunately, I forgot to photograph the finished product, which was really pretty cool. I cut around the edges of the design, matted on black paper - also clipped to the spiky shape - and mounted it on a silver foil textured card. 
The tangle here, by the way, is Skep, with a step-out by yours truly! While I've done it in a spiral before for an earlier Diva challenge, this is the first time I've done it in a circle. I like it. :)
