Sorry to hear about your bad experience with the bugs - that might sour me on birdseed too - hope you got your money back.
Didn't have a problem with the birds trying to eat it when the kids were playing but birds around here are fairly skittish.
Maybe in larger cities like New York City where people feed birds all of the time and they have no fear or humans wouldn't be a good idea - wouldn't want to recreate a scene from Hitchcock's "The Birds".
My son still preferred the messy sandbox for his cars, but this wasn't as messy and it was fun because it was something different than what he was used to.

Would be cute for all sorts of craft applications and you could also use wood stain if you wanted to give them a different look.
If it they are were going to be used on a garment that will be washed in a washing machine very often, you would probably want to use a waterproof sealer (available at any hardware store), glaze or resin, as the water will cause them to swell and weaken and cause them to break over time.
I love the little owl on the tree - cute idea.

I still have one like this from when my son was little and it does make a wonderful keepsake. Also kids like to show off how much they have grown when they visit by comparing the size of their hands when they were little to how big their hands get as they have grown.
This looks fabulous!
To Toxic Tea Party - Edward Scissorhands is a character from Tim Burton's 1990 movie of the same name that was portrayed by Johnny Depp where he was created by inventor that died before finishing him which left him scissors for hands. Sort of like an adorable humanistic goth pinocchio. If you have never seen it is worth taking a look at. My son is in his teens and saw it a few years ago an loved it even though to him it is an "old" movie because it came out before he was born.

Good explanation of what eggnog is by TK Rainy above. I have never heard of advaakart and couldn't find it in when I googled it so I don't know if is similar.
I live in the US and eggnog is readily available in the dairy case, but it doesn't sound like it is in other parts of the world. Cat Morely posted a recipe on here for eggnog if you want to try it: http://www.cutoutandkeep.net/projects/eggnog
If you have never had it is sort of sweet and creamy like a milkshake, but not as cold and not as thick and is more syrupy and has the flavor of a rich custard with nutmeg. I use the version without alcohol, but if you use alcohol it adds a bit a warm, slightly fruity kick to the mix.
Sounds yummy. Have too much to do before Christmas, but going to give this a try sometime. Thanks for sharing it with us!
The cake looks great and it sounds delicious.

It should, as the Amazing Goop "glues whatever bonds forever". I did a test run through the with just the stones with interfacing in a pillowcase 3 times and they held fast.
I would recommend, as with any top that has studs or any 3-D embellishments, wash inside a lingere bag or zippered pillowcase to avoid them them from catching on other items and falling off or possibly damaging other items.
Another possibility would be to put them on removable yolk that you would attach with Velcro instead of putting them on the T-shirt.
Very pretty. I made a long sleeve version too but used and old polo - I definitely like the way your t-shirt version drapes and will be on the lookout a garage and thift stores to try this. Thanks for sharing it with us!

Boy, this brought back memories! I remember making these when I was in grade school. This is a great craft for kids to make (with supervision) not only because it result in a fun and cool looking toy/decoration, but it builds confidence as it does not take a lot of skill to get great results. I remember thinking, gee, if I can make something this cool, what else can I make?

If you carry a lot of stuff in your backpack or bookbag it seems like the spiral spine get bent up and then the paper doesn't tear evenly - doing this project would eliminate that and give you twice as much paper to work with - you could even put a slightly larger piece of paper or cardboard between the two notebooks if you wanted to use it for two different subjects.
Instead of cutting the wire out you could just unwind it from the pages.
My son loves soft pretzels! This is going on my projects to try list. Thanks for sharing it with us!

Cute! What little boy (or snake lover - I work with a woman who used to love and have snakes) wouldn't love this.
Sounds interesting and imagine that the beans would absord the chocolate and coffee flavor to produce a healthier than typical type brownie - is one I want to try!
This would be great to wear for a special summer outing and thank you for putting it into a tutorial here - I have dial up only and it cannot handle Youtube or any other types of videos and would never even thought to make something like this on my nails.
This looks great for summer!
Great upcycle and tutorial.
They look spooky when you hold them up to the light with the glowing red eyes. Awesome!
It is very pretty and intricate.
Wow! This is really cool and a great upcycle of an old vinyl album.
I would never have thought use it as "canvas" for a painting and I love the colors on this and how the black vinyl background adds to the texture and shading of the painting.
Great way to use what you have on hand and they do sound yummy.
Great idea and sounds like it would be not only more affordable than a leather bracelet, but much more comfortable.
Sounds invigorating. This would be great to make and give as gifts.
It turned out great!
Great idea. This would be cool to wear to a party - would be a great conversation starter!
Looks like a very fun skirt and flamenco dancing sounds fun.

Awesome idea! Think I am going to start saving candy wrappers as this would make a unique gift to make a teen.

Congrats on your first sewing project - it looks great! Keep on sewing!
Great way to save an old love t-shirt!
This is a good basic list and person could build on this depending on what type of crafts they are into
In mine like to keep googly eyes, a seam gauge, a seam ripper and/or small scissors, snaps, velcro, buttons, zippers, black, white, red and glow-in-the-dark fabric paint, crochet hooks and at least a small ball of crochet thread in black and a small ball or two of yarn in black and white.

Great idea for toting around your supplies and keep them tidy.
Great upcycle of turning what would be trash into a lovely, cool treasure.
This looks delicious!
I remember reading about this recently about someone who posted they had received a toy via the toy society drop. Very cool concept; however, if you don't receive confirmation about where it ended up it does not mean the toy did not end up in hands of a child that will love it; it could be they are too young to use a computer or there family doesn't have access to one.
Very pretty and unique.
Sad,but true, there are many people all over the globe styling their protective breathing masks...it is a sign of the times.
Heck, if you need to wear them, might as well try to decorate them (but still make them functional).
I am sure there are other out there, like me, that only have dial up and watching videos on Youtube is not a viable option and you make it look doable. Thanks for sharing this tutorial with us!
Great upcycle - it is adorable!
This is really cool and would be great to wear on Halloween. With how you have painted them they look intimidating.

It is definitely a 70's dress! I used to have a dress similar to this as a kid in the 70's.
I am sure this is a fun dress for her or any girl to wear - I remember the big batwing sleeves made me feel like I was wearing a superhero cape.
I love the contrasting sleeves and the neckline.

These are great to make cards with and it looks classy, yet fresh.
As some flowers can stain pages, you may want to lie the flower between a layer of wax paper on each side (it also make it easier to remove as some flowers can become very brittle or stick to the page of the book).
Sound interesting. I had never heard of an Azuki bean before. What sort of taste does it have?
Cool idea. I especially like the one that looks like red velvet cake.
This sounds like it would be great to make up batches for Christmas to give as an unique, personalized present. Who couldn'd do with a mini at-home spa treatment for a little you time in the tub after a long day.
I like it better as a square also and with the beads farther apart - it looks more like leaves that way.
He turned out great! I especially love the little Elmo earrings.

Very colorful. Are they braided, knitted or crocheted?
I painted the disc of the "Starship Enterprise" project with the brush and it was a smooth surface the texture of the sock didn't really have much of an impact.
When I paint other items with the brush, I will note it here.
Very entertaining tutorial! I have all sorts of scraps lying around and this is going on my project to-do list. Thanks for sharing it!
Sounds delicious! Will have to try this sometime.
They look very nice.
These are cool!
I love it in purple! He looks fine wiht painted on eyes and would probably make it easier for flipping back and forth from fish to sushi.
On the ones that I made, I resorted to hand sewing the googly eyes on in order for them to stay on.

Awesome tutorial and it looks very elegant and stylish.
Looks cool. Would be great to use to make Warholian type of creations.
Great job on the t-shirt; I love the shading on the "shades" - looks very realistic.
Also a cool concept to start a trend and would be a great ice breaker/conversation piece at parties and clubs to a walk in wearing the shirt and the shade, especially if a whole group was wearing it (even though it would be hard to see in a dark club).
This would be great way to upcycle an old envelope (the the return ones that come in junk mail) into something useful.

It is very pretty. I have not worked much with clay before but interested in learning - not sure what you mean by blending - do you roll it out vertically or horizontally?
It is super easy and it is one of the few craft projects that I have done that my teen son thinks is cool.
After Easter they will not only serve a decorative purpose, but likely hold memory cards, an MP3 player, batteries and other assorted small items so they will be easy to find.
I love how it looks too and how you use it as a candle holder surrounded by rocks.
I love how it looks and the tutorial is easy to follow. By having your 7 year old daughter do it also makes it seem much less intimidating to try (but she does have an artistic eye - she did a great job on this scarf).
I love wearing skirts in summer and yours look very comfy. I especially like the 2nd one with the split up the side.

Kitty obviously has taken a shine to it and that is what is important.
I looks awesome and I love the idea of presenting it with the chocolate covered strawberries and putting a chocolate covered strawberry on top of the mini-cheese cakes.
The mini-cakes would be great for a potluck, carry in or even as an appetizer for a dinner party.
Very original as most jean bags are cut off at or above the crotch area and have straps sewn on, but by leaving a bit of the leg on and using a cord for the straps they still look like shorts - cute!
It is very elegant.
My son loved crafts like this when he was younger and this and it helped him to build tacticle skills and confidence in preparing him to go to school with small successes with simple projects.
is cute and it is simple enough that even younger children can make or help make with supervison and proudly show of their creations to visitors.
I have seen cassette wallets, but I like this concept more as you use a zipper and an 8 track is bigger and would hold.
If I find that Styx 8 track when I clean out the garage this summer, I am going to attempt this.
He looks like an angry monster, but you got to love him because he is so cute when he is angry!
What a great upcycle! This is very lovely an unique.

Cool idea! I love how the pins look like sprinkles on the cupcake.

This sounds delicious.
This would be a cool thing to make for Valentine's Day for the Snickers lover on your list.
Hope that the dog is found and returned.
This looks great and as it does catch the eye it should make people take a second look and stick out in their mind should they see Jake.
They were worth your extra effort as they are adorable and I love how you used different colored toothpicks to hold them together.
Great upcycle! The are very lovely and would be great to wear for Valentine's Day.
These are really cool and would make a great present for pre-schoolers for Easter instead of candy.

It looks very festive and fun.
These look great - I especially like the pink one.
It is cute and I it is cool that you used the flowered print for the body as it makes it unique.
Great upcycle of old guitar strings and a great modern twist on a historic craft. It is very lovely.
Very original and I can see this design being very popular with the teen crowd.
I love th concept and I always say what isn't perfect means that it has a distictive personality all its own.
This is adorable, but just too cute to ever use.
They are very pretty.
These are adorable and would make a great appetizer for a winter party.
This is really clever and I like how it looks.
It is very pretty.
Great upcycle of turning what might otherwise be trash into a treasure; makes a unique decoration and great conversation piece. Would also be a cool gift to give a fellow music lover.
They look very roomy and love the pleated one with the flowers on it.
They are very lovely. The colors used in the second picture would be perfect to make and give for a Valentine's Day present.
What an adorable bracelet!
It brings back summer memories of my childhood where we would go out at night and catch fire flies in a mason jar and whoever got the most got a treat (a soda or a piece of candy).
If you have a keyring that is approaching what a jailer's would look like (like mine) color coding them, or even texture covering them with different fabrics if you have to look for them in the dark is a great idea. Thanks for sharing it with us!
I haven't made regular popcorn in years, but this sounds yummy.
Thanks, Mrs. T and thank you for sharing your wonderful how-to that made it all possible.
It is special to me as we used to have a Scotty dog, Dutchess, and she was a wonderful dog. Wearing the scarf keeps her memory alive.
Great upcycle! I love how the re-fashioned ones look.
I would have never guessed it held tools as it is fashionable enough just to be a snazzy purse and the yellow color makes me think of a bright, sunny day - very cool and creative!
LOL. Too funny (and very creative and cute too)! This would be one way to keep the guy(s) in your life from ever snooping through your purse again.
It is cool that you now have a fashionable bag to carry your laptop in that you were able to craft for free out of an old pair of pants and a strap off another bag.
With Valentine's Day around the corner this would make a nice, inexpensive gift to make.
This would be much better than what you could buy in the store because you could coordinate it with your outfits. They had similar bangles at Old Navy a Christmas for $7.50 ea. that were not as nice with limited color options.
It is cool that you crafted something for your fish and it looks great and I am sure he will enjoy it.
Great way to upcycle something that would have ended up in the trash into something useful and pretty.
They are both cool, but I like the skulls one the best.
It is not only pretty and stylish, but I imagine it is very durable too, being made out of duct tape.
I think it looks cuter with having one of the Olly's wonky - it shows he is a non-conformist and gives him personality.
Lucky boyfriend to be getting such cool shoes for his birthday. They look great!
I like the kayaking one the best - totally original.
These are very lovely and unique - have never seen dragonfly earrings before.
What a great way to upcycle magazines! It looks very artistic.

I love Pacman and these are awesome!
This would be a perfect cake to make for a kid's birthday as most are nuts over dinosaurs.

These are awesome! My son used to love Pikachu.
Great job and love the fabric!
I love this version with the striped fabric and the buttons.
Very unique and great way to upcycle!
They turned out cute and thanks for the tips as I have this item on my "to craft" list.
This would be great to make and keep in your purse for small projects. I sometimes take project to work to do on my lunch hour and this would be a great way to keep them organized.
Great way to upcycle an old box and get your sewing item organized in a stylish way. I love how you have made all the different compartments to keep it tidy.
I have made many necklaces out of paper beads, but never thought to make earrings and yours look great!
You can also use magazine pages to make beads as many of them have a heavier weight also, but if not you can use another sheet of paper and use a glue stick to attach it to the back of the page, then roll it.
You find pages that match colors in an outfit and make a custom piece to match the outfit and save the paper from going to a landfill all at the same time. What could be better?
Never seen a crocheted cauldren before - very original. These would be cute to hang on mini "Halloween" tree or for playing witch with a Barbie.
Looks very bright and cheery.
I had never heard of mamegomas before but yours sure are cute! Thanks for sharing the how to with all of us.
Very original and clever. It sure made me look twice!

Very unique texture. This would be a great technique for bringing texture to a blustery sea or a stormy night.
Great idea to recycle old sim cards and they look techno cool!
This is really cool.
I love how you have done the eyes and how you coordinated the beak to be the same color as the wings.
I had never heard of paper piecing before, but as the things that you have made have turned out so amazing I am going to put this on my list of new things to try in 2009.
Thanks for the tutorial!
I like this version the best because of all of the colors and it is also a great way to recycle an old magazine.
Great way to upcycle something that would normally be discarded into something cute and clever.
This would be good to make bows for kid's hair. It would also be great to attach to shoes and decorate the shoes with the same candy theme or even decopogue the rest of the shoes with the same type of wrapper.
These would be great for a "Think Spring" encouragement on snow days.
Cool hat. Thanks for the tutorial!
It turned out really great!
It is really neat how you have used your own inspirations and talents to this project and the end result is amazing.
Great way to upcycle and turn old school LPs into modern glam bracelets.
I really like all the glitz and while might not wear it for every day, would be great for a night out or even just dressing up to go out to eat.
It is very unique and your tutorial if very professional looking.
Great idea! If I didn't rent I would put this in my kitchen. It seems like it is always a pain to get the pans out or find the right pan when I need without having to get everything out; with this, it is right at your fingertips.
This is the first time I have seen a woven duct tape purse -it is very different and I like the choice of colors and how the red weaves in with the purple and great thinking in using a manila folder material to stablize the bag.
Awesome quilt! Lots of time, patience and love went into making something as detailed as this for it to turn out so lovely and professional looking. You Mimi deserves lots of hugs and praises.
This looks like it would be great to wear if you have arthritis or pins in your joints if you have ever broken your ankle to give the extra added warmth that helps aleviate pain and much more fashionable an elastic brace or bulky ankle wrap.
It is inspiring that you have only been crocheting 2 months and turned out such a lovely and useful item.
My Mom was heavily into crochet, but I never quite got the hang of it. Since she has since passed on, I have been trying to learn to honor her memory and I am favoriting this as a possible starter project.
Thanks for sharing the link with the pattern and your experience and tweaks to it.
It looks very elegant and well made at first I thought it was a jewelry roll. It is very pretty and will be great for toting around crochet hooks.
Very creative upcycle of an old whoppie cushion!
While a rolls that are common are great for travel and portablily, at home having them in plain site is much better as they are not only easier to find, they sort of beg for you to use them and spur inspirations and with the cake theme, they also make a clever decoration and conversation piece.
Very clever idea...a crocheted crochet hook holder.
This would be a great idea to use up scraps of fabric from other projects to turn into something functional and well as pretty. Also would be great from traveling and if you have a lot of needles, make them easier to find.
It really does class up a pony tail.
Cute. He could also be adapted to make Southpark's "Kenny".
Neat concept! I had never thought to make a book in to a clock before. It looks very cool.
Awesome idea! This is going to go on my future "to do" projects list. Thanks for sharing this with us all!
This is a great idea. About how much fabric and fleece does it take?
Great idea! This is going to go on my "to try" to make list.
Great idea! I don't have the tools to do it (maybe will put them on my wish list for next Christmas though!), otherwise I would definitely give this a try.
These are cute! I like the one in orange the best.
Thanks for sharing your ideas.
The plastic bag idea is great for oversize and odd shaped gifts and I like the way the bag fluffs out over the top of the ribbon.
The rosettes made from wrapping paper looks like they would hold up better it shipping that traditional bows that get totally squashed.
Great personalization of your jacket. Very cute!
Awesome idea and they look very fashionable.
Cute idea! Looks like a bouquet of flowers.
Thanks for the tutorial.
This would be a great gift idea for tweens and teen girls to give to their friends.
It would also good present for a plumber as they use small mirrors to check the other side of joints in tight places that they cannot get to and you could make it look manly - my ex used to use my old pink Mary Kay compact and got teased horribly for it, but it would fit in his pocket and he could carry it around without it getting easily broken and got the job done.
It gives them something useful, but personalized and one-of-a-kind.
It also gives new life to something that might otherwise end up in the trash if you use a used compact for this project.
I am sure your Grandma will be very "hoppy" with it and want to "leap" for joy over your thoughtfulness to make her a present instead of just going out and buying something.
LOL. This is cool!
I have made cresent rolls with with a layer of cinnamon sugar and butter and to make cinnomon rolls and they are good. Jelly might be good and maybe frosting, but not sure how pudding would work out after being baked and cooled again.
Thanks for sharing this - I haven't made biscuits from scratch in forever, but will give your recipe a go after the next time I buy shortening (I usually use butter in everything instead).
I usually do it the other way around - buy Pillbury Grand flaky biscuits and then make the gravy from scratch and I am glad to see I am not the only person that likes to add cheese to their gravy - it is so much better that way.
The cat in oven is a riot. We used to have a cat, much to our dismay, that loved to sleep on the top of the stove.
These sound delicious! I am definitely going to try this sometime.
It is very unique and I love the pink straws with the glitter on the end and with being pink, great for breast cancer awareness!
Great use of a small space to study or just get away from everyone else. It is very well organize and inviting despite the limited space.
I love the paper bows and the cut out bow is very clever.
Cute and would make a great, inexpensive gift to give to co-workers and family members to get coffee on the go.
This is a great project for grade school kids (or older) to make something to welcome a new sibling to the family.
All they need to be able to do is to the the fabric around the edges (to make it uniform, the parent could baste around the edges to the line where the child needs to stop cutting)and tie both pieces of fleece together at the edges on all size.
These also make great lap blankets when you are on the couch watching TV or reading a book, or even an extra layer on top of your blankets in bed as they keep you very warm and toasty.
Great idea! You could also use larger lids, like those off of Gatorade, if you wanted to make a larger design.
Great way to recycle and old lightbulb and a stray sock into an unique Christmas ornament!
It does look easy enough for grade schoolers to do too. Another added bonus is that this is a safer option that just a decorated glass bulb because if there is an accident and bulb is broken, it is contained within the sock.
Great idea! Cards usually end up getting tossed, but an ornament can go on the tree every year and when you put it on the tree, you think about the people that send it to you.
The green one on the end is amazing...it looks like a real piece of candy.
Love the fabric!
Nice concept happy to hear that the strings were replaced with elastic to avoid a choking hazard making it baby safe. It looks like it would keep a bab toasty and cozy in cold weathre.
One thing you might want to add is a hole where the child safety seat restraints go so it will be car friendly.
Nice bag and with the thermal lining should make i super sturdy.
It is very pretty. If I had any bulbs that size I would try this.
What a great gift for your niece.
I like the 3 panel on th bottom and how you used two different types of prints on the top and the pockets.
Thanks for the tutorial - it is easy to understand.
It is wonderful that you have made such a nifty looking hat for your roomies son to play dress up in and encourage imaginative play.
The hat looks very well made and I am sure he will get a lot of use out of.
It is very cute and you have done a great job on the tutorial.
He is adorable! This would make a great gift for a child for Christmas also.
Thanks for the pattern and the tutorial.
LOL, love the evil twin idea! They both are adorable!
Looks cool. What sort of material are the tiles inlayed to?
He turned out really cute.
I have this project on my "want to attempt" list and I really like the colors you used and may go for a more tropical look myself.
I always like to try different salsa recipes and I especially want to try this one as it has garlic in it.
Wonderful idea and it looks very fashionable!
These sound great and unique and would go over great at a carry in. Thanks for sharing this with us.
It does look yummy! Will put his on my "to make" list for when Strawberries come back into season where I live.
Cute bag and the tutorial was easy to understand. Thanks for sharing it with us!
It looks great and wonderful idea for using up scraps from a stash.

Great way to recycle a broken controller. The earring are awesome and would make a great present for any Playstation gaming enthusiast.
Unique concept. Great way to use up old fabric scraps into a cool necklace.
Now this is my kind of bouquet! Even if you pick out the other person's favorite flowers, it could be people around them have allergies - no worries about that with a candy bouquet!
Whoever made this had a very active imagination and eye for creativity...I would never have thought to make a skeleton out of old tape cases and I would not have guessed that is what this was made out of if it was not indicated. Pretty cool!
Awh! It is yesterday. We used to have Scottie dog and think I am going to try to make it as an ornament in for the Christmas tree in her memory.
What a wonderful Christmas craft! It is very pretty.
I had never heard of doing this before and will have to give it a try some time.
This sounds like it would work very well for things that are washed infrequently like small throw pillows, wall hangings, purses or wallets, or not at all, like to decorate fabric to use on making scrapbooks or journals.
It looks like a professionally made cake and that you put thought, effort and heart into it I am sure made it all the more special to your hubby.
Sounds yummy...going to have to try it sometime!
I had never heard of sage butter before but it sounds delicious! Thanks for sharing this with all of us.
It sounds like an interesting dish - how much of each ingredient does it take?
Great bag for summer!
This is really cool. A friend's daughter is a biology major and this would make a great present for any wacky scientific type person or bug lovers.
They turnout adorable despite the ucky glue. They sort of remind me of the cute but evil critters on the South Park Christmas special.
LOL, cute idea!
These are cool! They would make a great Christmas gift for kids.
Looks tasty and festive and that it would be fun to make.
Great idea for a simple and inexpensive, yet thoughtful gift. I am going to show this to my son and suggest that he do this for his friends for Christmas with some Dale Earnhart fabric that was originally going to be a pair of sleep pants as all his friends are into Nascar.
Thanks for sharing your idea!
These turned out really cute. I have a whole sack of what we refer to as "the land of unmatched socks" and may try to make a sock creature in the near future.
Only one word of warning on making any sort of toys over any children under 3...not a good idea to use buttons, no matter how well you think you have sewn them on, pom poms, googly eyes or anything else a child can get off a baby/toddler could choke on.
Great idea! This will be perfect for wrapping small gifts, easy enough for kids to do and great way to recycle!
Cute idea! Think we will try this next year for Halloween.
Wonderful idea! My son is learning to cook and this would be a fun project for him. Thanks for sharing it with all of us!
Great way to recycle a old sweater into a cool holiday decoration or even a toy for little one's to play with and attaching the legs with velcro is genius.
I would have gone nuts over this when I was little kid as I loved playing supermarket and house and could have bought the stuffed turkey at the "store" and then taken it home and baked it in my "oven" (an old box decorated to be a stove) and then could pretend I was serving it by taking the legs off the turkey and serving it on a plate.
What a cute little doll you have and she looks great in the costume. I like the scales design and how it flows down her back but short in the front so she doesn't trip over it. I tis not only cute and creative but very toddler friendly.
Thanks for the tutorial! It is a great way to recycle what would normally be landfill fodder into something beautiful.
Wow. I would never have guessed that it was made out of old ties. What a great way to refashion ugly old ties into something amazing.
I don't know if I have the patience to piece all the pieces together, but I love this pattern and have favorited for my future "to try" list. Thanks for sharing it with all of us!
The cake is awesome and would not all the more memorable because you made it especially for her.
Anyone can go out and buy a birthday cake if they have the money...not everyone has the imagination, creativity and willing to put for the effort to make it themselves and just shows her that much more how much you love her.
We love cappuccino and can't wait to try to make a batch of these!
Thanks for sharing the recipe with us and the easy to understand tutorial.
They look delicious!
I like the fact that you use honey to sweeten the frosting and will keep this recipe in mind the next time I make carrot cake.
I love the abstractness of this bag - totally original.
You wouldn't need to rip it apart to add a lining - just use the existing bag to make your pattern, then add 1/2 inch or so to each side for the seam allowance and sew the lining together, then turn the existing bag inside out and stitch it to the lining at the top.
Cute idea. I don't think it would be creepy is you used face pictures of different friends, family and people in your life and things you like.
Would only be creepy if you just used pictures of one person - sort of obessive and stalkerish or just pics of yourself - sort of conceited, but even then, could make a great art project as people wonder about the deeper meaning of it.
My son saw this and said we just had to make it, so I went to the store yesterday and bought the stuff and he just got done mixing it and we will be having this with our dinner tonight.
Thanks for sharing this with all of us!
Great way to recycle! They are both cute.
Great idea! It really pretties up the package. I will have to try this when I start wrapping Christmas presents. Thank you for sharing this with us!
Nice recon and I love the skulls. Are they embroidered or drawn on with fabric paint or some other medium?
