unless you don't have a microwave, like us.
Ugh!  Yeah that would be a problem! Smiley  You can put the melts I was talking about right in a saucepan if you don't have a microwave.  No double boiler needed.

CK Products also has things like candy bits- I love the lemon which I mix with white chocolate and make lemon bark instead of peppermint.  They have a ton of candy items that have made food gift giving a lot easier for me. 
2  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / Re: "_____ in a box" gift ideas. on: December 06, 2007 01:06:36 PM
Ninety-six pages!  I haven't read through them all, so forgive me if this has been asked before...I want to do "Me in a Box" to send to my long distance love.

Aside from the obvious- pictures, a top with my perfume on it, a lock of hair...what else could I put in there?  You'd think this would be easy since I'm the "Me" hehe but I've come to a road block.

I make these but not for cocoa, just for eating!  What I do is use three jumbo marshmallows on white sucker sticks, coat them with melted milk chocolate and then let them set up on freezer paper.  After they set up I drizzle dark and white chocolate on them.  I do the same with pretzel rods.  After they are finished I put them in cello bags and tie them with ribbon for gift giving. People always ask where I bought them.

They have melts you can buy at most stores (milk, dark, and white), and if you go to a store that sells items for making candy they have really good brands that seem to work better than the ones at super stores.  I use the CK Products brand.  You can melt them in the microwave in a couple of minutes and not have to use a double boiler at all.  Saves time and clean up is nothing.

Did you use the same paint on the brick and the siding?  (That is siding on part of the back right?)

My siblings and I were thinking of painting our dad's house, he has vinyl siding and some brick so I was curious if you had to buy separate paint for each surface as I assumed you did.

That is one of the cutest things EVAR!  Love love love it and would buy one off you in a second.

I think you did a great job!  Did you look the tutorials up on the internet or did you get a book?  I've been trying to learn how to make korker bows but all the methods I've tried haven't come out the way I want them too.

If you look down on this page a bit you will see where we had a short discussion about it.  I tried the Stencil Spray and it was ok...it's pretty thick and can get bubbles in it and it kind of streams out rather than sprays.

I think those look great!  I also had a question- does the clipping/dryer method work with most canvas shoes?  I like the distressed Keds but hate to pay $40 for them when they only last one Summer.  If I can get the distressed look I like I'd much rather buy the cheaper off brands and do it myself.

Just a hint- if you shave the crayons then put the freezer paper on top and use the iron it will melt them.  I don't know about the method you tried, but shavings work really nicely. Smiley
