...and still, more crafty ideas!
Tonight, Baby Mama Emily came over to my house to help me make the chocolate-covered pretzel sticks that will be part of the "candy buffet" at Emily and Baby Charlotte's shower on Sunday.
Here's how they turned out -- pretty great, I think! I still want to make more using white chocolate, so hopefully tomorrow night I'll find the time.
Meanwhile, as I was driving home from my day job, I thought about how cool it would be to make little "sour cream containers" for the Hershey's kisses I bought for the candy buffet.
So here they are! I whipped up about a dozen of these in an hour or so ... creating the idea takes the biggest amount of time, I think.
To make these, I cut six equal pieces of paper from a 12x12" sheet (each piece was 6"x4"). I taped one short side and rolled the paper into a tube. Then I pinched the one end shut, using a piece of double-sided tape and a crimper tool. I filled it with 6 Hershey's kisses, pinched and glued the top end sealed (I used double-faced tape), and crimped. Decorated using monkeys from the Cricut Zooballoo cartridge and Creative Charms flowers, ribbons.
What do you think?
