2 homemade presents [Jan. 1st, 2010|01:15 am]
For People Who Like to Make Things Themselves


[mood |accomplishedaccomplished]

These are 2 presents I made my boyfriend for Christmas. I don't have pictures of the other home made things yet. I don't think I'll get pics of the Little Mermaid bookmarks I made though. (1 sheet of nice Little Mermaid paper from A.C. Moore, cut 2 pieces the same size 2.5-4" long and 1-2.5" wide, glue back to back, round the corners, hole punch the top, string with strands of floss and tie as wanted.)


I cut a piece of construction paper into 6 cards and punched holes in the upper corner (I used one of the pieces as a guide by notching out the corner and marking with a pencil). Gave them mostly silly titles and tried to get a lot of variety. There are things like making the meal myself, he gets to control the tv all day, end a conversation, and 2 random choice ones. Little bit of ribbon to tie them together and done!


I can't remember the name, but I got the recipe from Woman's Day. It uses a puff pastry sheet with cinnamon, sugar, and pumpkin spice. Slicing them was hard because they're so thin, and I over cooked some. But he likes them! (And I get to eat the ones that are too well done for him.)
