We were worred about the glass exploding also.  The first one we did my husband held a plate in front of the deep fryer just incase....but nothing happened both times we did it.

I did it just like the "candy wrapper" purses.  One webpage I found helpful was http://candywrapperpurse.blogspot.com/2007/08/chip-wrapper-purse.html

You can also google "candy wrapper purse instructions" and find a bunch of other sites. 

Then I just sewed on the plastic handles with green yarn.

1855  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / My Two Quilts on: January 02, 2009 05:51:27 PM
I made two quilts for Christmas gifts ...





If you look close at the second one you can see how the iron on backing on the brown circles peeled up when I washed it.  Any ideas what I did wrong?  On the package for the iron on stuff it said that it was machine washable.  It also said I didn't need to sew around the edges....I guess I should have though.

I made this fun alien hat for my sister for Christmas.  It's the first knit hat I've ever made...I think it turned out real well.  I got the pattern at http://www.polarknit.com/files/Polka-Dot%20Alien%20Hat.pdf  (incase you like it)...

Well I decided to do something totally different.... My husband loves deep frying stuff so we decided to make deep fried gift wrap.

I put one gift (a smiley necklace) in a baby food jar and the other gift (a necklace) in an altoid's tin.  I made funnel cake batter (egg, milk, flour, salt, baking powder, sugar) and rolled the jar and tin around in the batter and then deep fried it.  You could use any container that could resist the heat. 

We were concerned that the oil would leak into the containers and ruin the necklaces.  Amazingly, no oil got inside and the necklaces where still like new.  I think the batter helped to seal the lids. 

I then used Pull N Peel Twizzlers to make a ribbon and bow.

It was very fun to open the gifts.  I actually made another one and gave it to my sister as one of her presents.  She was very shocked at the wrapping and we all had a good laugh watching her open it. 

Here's the baby food jar being dipped in funnel cake batter
