1  Instructions! in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by AshBoBizzle on: December 22, 2008 08:31:14 PM
Alright, here are the instructions.  I found this craft online by the way.  It is not my own.  I had to use paper but I hope you get the idea.


1 dish towel
1 dishcloth
1 potholder (square or round works best)

Fanfold the dish towel lengthwise (A).

Fold it in half (B) and tie off about 2-3 inches from the fold to form the head (C).

Fanfold the potholder (D) and tie it in the middle.  This will form the wings (E).

Fanfold the dishcloth (F).  Tie off each end about 1 inch in to form the hands (G).

Lay the dischcloth atop the potholder (H) and use more ribbon to tie the two pieces together (I).

Wrap the arms around the dishtowel just below where you tied off the head and tie the hands together (J).

Attach a piece of ribbon at the back to form the hanging loop (K).

Attach the Kitchen Angel poem (I usually tie it between the hands) or anything you wish to have your Angel hold.

I am your Kitchen Angel
Ill watch over all you do,
Baking all those goodies
And snitching one or two!

And if you ever tire of me,
Or some help is what your wish is,
Just untie my little ribbons
And Ill help you with the dishes!

And you're done!

Thanks for all the great feedback!  Cheesy

2  Kitchen Angels for Christmas (hanging dolls made from towels) -- Now w/ Tutorial in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by AshBoBizzle on: December 21, 2008 03:28:47 PM
I had previously made one of these for my mom for Mother's Day and I've made 6 more for Christmas gifts to various family members.  (My grandmother lives with us so that is why hers has a bell... no point in having two Kitchen Angels hanging on our kitchen wall!)

If anyone is interested in the instructions, just let me know!

3  Christmas Gift Tags/Cards made from recycled earrings (now with glitter!) in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by AshBoBizzle on: December 17, 2008 11:42:50 PM
I figured I'd post this in the Reconstructed board since my main goal was recycling.

I'm saving my money up for my first car so I didn't want to spend a lot of cash on things like cards or gift tags this year.  So I went through some old drawers and found some bits & bobs.  There were a bunch of old holiday-themed plastic earrings my mom used to have me wear when I was little and I figured they might make some cool cards or gift tags, so I picked them out, pulled out the hooks, and glued 'em down to good 'ol construction paper.

They're not the most professional-looking gift tags in the world, but I don't mind.  At least I know they're unique!

EDIT:  I added some glitter paint and gold ribbon so now I'm happier with them.

4  "Team Jacob" t-shirt [The Twilight Saga] in Completed Projects by AshBoBizzle on: July 29, 2008 12:00:05 AM
I decided to put this in the Miscellaneous category because I didn't really make the shirt, just drew on it with fabric paints.
Anyways... onto the description!

My friends and I are going to a midnight release party of Breaking Dawn, the 4th book in The Twilight Saga by Stephenie Meyer, this Fri/Sat.
We all bought red t-shirts and stuck with the same basic design and phrases.
If you're familiar with the books, you'll understand why the shirt has paw prints on it   Wink

This is a close-up of the front:

I'm really pleased with how it turned out.

This was what I put on the back:

I wish I hadn't run out of the black paint, and the smudges suck, but it's all good.

Oh, and one more note to those that haven't read the books -- I don't mean to offend anyone with the phrase.
The character's name is Jacob Black, hence the quotes.

Thanks for looking!

5  Diploma cake & Smiley-face Grad cupcakes! in Dessert by AshBoBizzle on: July 17, 2008 10:56:45 PM
I know this is superrrrr late but I had to post the pics of my graduation desserts! They turned out better than we had expected.

First is the diploma cake --

It was made up of a pumpkin roll cake with cream-cheese frosting both inside and outside (a bit much in my opinion, but it was a huge hit!). The details were just decorating icing and the ribbon was made of fruit rollup.

Next are the grad cupcakes (I meant to get a better pic of these but forgot.) --

They were just confetti cake mix with whipped white frosting dyed a light yellow. Again, details were done with decorating icing. The hats were individual pieces of Hershey's chocolate. The best part was making all the different faces, though!

All I know is I ate wayyyy too many cupcakes that week!

Maybe someone can try one of these for next year  Smiley

6  Kitchen Angel in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by AshBoBizzle on: May 25, 2008 09:29:53 PM
So I made this little doll-type thing for my mom for Mother's Day this year since she loves Americana decorations. I put it in Crafty Housewares because she says she's going to hang it up.

Anyhow, I found the instructions at a website along with the little poem. It's just made of a potholder, a dish cloth, and a dish towel, and you use ribbon to secure all the pieces together. It turned out a lot better than I thought it would.


The third photo shows the arms better and the second photo has the most true colors. You can read the poem in the last photo.

7  Garden card for Mother's Day in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by AshBoBizzle on: May 25, 2008 09:10:40 PM
Hi everyone, this is my first post.

I made this card for my mom for Mother's Day this year because I wanted to give her homemade gifts. It was made by painting thick drawing paper and then cutting out various shapes from construction paper. The design was based on a Carol Duvall episode. I had a few mishaps when adding the paint dots, etc., but my mom still loved it! She really enjoys gardening.  Smiley
