Yippee Brena!


JM2: here's the image:



The brown things are seeds, obviously.

I'll see if I can get to a photo tute of this soon.

was there ever a tute of this? is this plantable paper?

I never made a photo tute of it, but here's what I did.

Things you'll need:
Blender
Cheap toilet paper
Can of sprinkle seeds (I got a can at Wal-Mart for under $3)
Water
Plastic Mold (I used a soap mold from Hobby Lobby)

Get out your blender and toilet paper. Rip pieces of the toilet paper (not exact, but I used about one inch squares) and place in the blender. When the blender is filled with TP (you don't have to compact it), pour in enough water to coat. Repeat until the blender is half filled with wet TP and some water. Put on the top and blend. I would blend mine on high for about five minutes, as I sprinkled a few seeds in each mold (just a few).

Turn the blender off and sprinkle seeds in the paper pulp. Reach in and grab a handful of the glop, squeeze to remove excess water, and push into a mold. Repeat until all molds are filled with paper. Sprinkle a few more seeds on the top, and place somewhere to dry (takes 1-3 days).

When it's dry, the pulp should pull away from the edges. This didn't always happen but you can carefully pry them with a finger nail. Tear off any uneven edges and you're done!

If you have too much water in your pulp when you mold it, you'll be picking out sprouts when you remove them!

Why TP? I've tried almost every other form of paper and none blended well. I bought cheap toilet paper from Dollar General (four rolls for $1) and it worked the best all around.

Sorry about the delay. I haven't been on this site in forever. I'll try again to get a picture tute for this.

kellbell: I'd start with April. A craftalong is where you craft items but you don't send them out to anyone. This one is to inspire you to craft all year so you're not busting hump the last few months making gifts for everyone. If you follow this craftalong, when Christmas comes, you should have a good pile of crafted gifts for everyone.

Just received from BrightEyedAndCrafty (literally minutes ago)! Love it! I got a mix CD, cross necklace, cross keychain (which I desperately needed) a bag and a devotional book! Thank you very much Courtney! I think I'll wear the cross tomorrow, and the bag is the perfect size to carry my bible in (my last bible bag is getting a little old). I love it all! God bless you!

You can make journals, book marks, thongs, etc.

i'm not sure who is going to get these gifts, but i guess the idea is to have them made, right?


Exactly. Rarely do I make anything with someone in mind.

Okay, in the post early I promised I'd post pictures of the loot. Here's the pic of the crafty goodness before going in the bag (this gift didn't include fudge, but did include a bottle of perfume, wrapped on the right)...




Here's it all packed in the bag...




And here it is all ready to go (at the bottom is a DVD that a friend gave the same person)...

February is looming closer and I am stumped what to make any ideas for someone who is not brilliant at sewing? Remember I do not have a sewing machine either so it will have to something I can make by hand sewing.

You can embroder tea towels/kitchen towels for someone. That doesn't take a sewing machine and you buy one kit and repeat. Also you could get christmas patches (like candy canes) at your local sewing shop and sew them on towels for christmas towels.

I'm new at craftster but I've joined up - I'd started making Christmas presents and birthday presents already since I decided they are all going to be handmade this year (I sew and cook but can crochert a little).  To go with the ornaments theme, maybe I'll make those felt stockings I meant to make me DH and the kids for this christmas - I made about 30 others for other people's gifts...


That's what I've decided to do. I'm going to make mini felt stockings (looking for a decent template) and personalize them, then I'm going to use them as gift tags again and put edible treats inside.
