Just doing my homework

For my last Silhouette classes, I gave the ladies a homework assignment. I gave them each some vinyl and transfer paper and told them to take it home and do something with it.
I decided I should do one too.



This was a lot of fun and I am really happy with it. If you want to show me what you have done, email me a photo and I will share it.

PS. The lighting isn't very good. Its black vinyl on a white wall.

Paper Flower Bouquet

I did this for a display at work but I loved how it turned out.



I am thinking I might do a smaller one for my shelf. I used the Silhouette but it would be easy to do with a cricut also. (or even punches)

Can you stand one more?



I have to say I have really been loving the digital scrapbooking. I didn't think I would but I have. Who knew. Anyway this was another free kit from the Shabby Princess. You really should check it out.

Desk Top Calander



If you like this you can do one too. Go to http://scrapbookdimensions.com and click on the wallpaper link then just follow the instructions. There is even a video if the instructions are to hard to understand. But really its easy. I did it in less then 5 minutes.

Bunny Treats

I Think these would be fun to do for a FHE project for the neighbors. (I don't know if I will or not but I think they would be super fun to share!)





INGREDIENTS AND DIRECTIONS:

1. Reduce 1 sleeve graham crackers to crumbs.
2. Layer 2/3 of the crumbs in a 1 quart jar.
3. Place 8 marshmallow bunny peeps standing up, facing out around the inside of the jar.
4. Press them up against the glass, but don't squash them.
5. Carefully spoon remaining crumbs in the center of the jar to support the bunnies, pressing down to keep it snug.
6. On top of this pour 1-1/4 cup Easter M&M's.
7. Spoon 1/3 cup brown sugar into center of M&M's, gently pressing with a spoon.
My changes: I did M&M's first, then Peeps, then put combined brown sugar and graham cracker crumbs in baggie. I didn't like how the crumbs made a mess in the jar.


Attach a gift tag giving the following instructions:

1. Empty the jar contents into a bowl. Snip the bunnies into bits with kitchen sheers or cut up with a knife. Return the bunny bits to the mixture. Mix well.
2. Melt 1/2 cup butter; add 1 teaspoon vanilla. Pour this over the dry ingredients, mixing well. Pat into a greased 9" square pan. Bake at 350 degrees F for 15 minutes. Cool and cut into bars.
(Makes 9 to 12 bars.)

*Option - leave bunnies whole; combine remaining ingredients and place the bunnies on top; then bake as directed.

*This gift jar may be created to suit any holiday for which marshmallow candies are available.
