This could very well be a niche you've found yourself, sister-
I haven't the patience to scroll through ALL you great feedback on this cake, BUT I am sure there are a number of people saying that they'd buy one... hmmm...give you ideas??? i LOVE original confectionaries. yum. i dont have the time to do something like that--but if you offered delivery on them or even 'DIY' packs w/ instructions, ingredients... offered 'em thru the 'net....you got yerself a venture.

well at least thats what i think.
good work. stunning
thought i was seeing things. you odd ball, you! (thats a compliment!)

how do you pull the end off?  you mean the kind covered in tissue paper that you pull the end of, right?

the end of the cracker is like squished up foil. right? well you put your fingers in the little hole in the end and push the paper out. its just squished together - and then to close it you squish it back up again.   does that make sense? its like a wrapped candy-except the ends arent twisted. just cinched. y'know?
i wish my camera worked or i would send you pics.... the cracker works the same when you break it open --youve just put extra stuff into it for added interest.
also --its a fragile endeavour. sooo sood luck.

i have another idea i stole from a friend of mine back home--now i'm helping you guys--- ??
take cheap xmas crackers (they're a buck at a dollar store-for six mini's) --
carefully pull the ends apart and stuff em with little trinkets of yer own. here's some ideas:
-dollars and quarters
- junk jewels
- beads (big enough not to slip thru the ends)
- magnets---or any little thing that youve crafted.
- doobies
- chocolates and sweets.
tickets, paper fortunes, special messages, anything...actually you could do mini themed ideas for each of your friends..
good idea for cheeep!
in laws! thats it!
okay-- see ya

hey ya'll
thanks for the ideas- they all sound great.
came into a lightbulb moment early this morn about my b/f's gift. its a "saving up money to go to France" jar. Filling it with a few bucks to start and misc travel and frenchis items. have: money belt, cdn flag pin, two french classsic paperbacks, ...all in a jar that i will paint in a theme-y frenchie- money-jar way.
does that make sense? it will be much easier when i take pics. as soon as i actually complete it. ha
the gelly martini candles are great and i might actually do them my self.... i dont think the inlaws are candle burning types...(i saw a candle in their bathroom and it had like an inch layer of dust on it...) i dunno it jst seems like it should be perfect.. oohh does anyone have a real good liquor based choco recipe?

and the craft supplies are a good one.. thx-- i should just raid my own supplies. har. i made a great wee little boot stocking so far for my mama...

good ideas! thanks!
i also have some iron on transfer paper for the printer...hmm..
lots of feathers, glitter, cheap felt...
problem with the family- my mum is in another city.. and the 'in-laws' are new... they like cocktail hour though--ha.
the bass would be great if i had the dough---
my man is pretty practical. .......hmmmmmmmm.

hey y'all-
firstly--i must say that it is so very refreshing that i have found this website full of very cool crafters. i must say i am hooked to this site.
my problem is just as many of the other peeps here. no money, little time and no ideas for gifts for the peeps i love.
here goes:
i have an older boyfriend in his 40's who is the hardest person i can think of for a crafty based gift. hes into fishing, hunting, the outdoors in general. he is such a sweet guy and i want to wow him with my creative genius. i was thinking of a picnic backpak set with a few add ons, but that fell thru when i realised he has tons of camp gear already. .... what to do?Huh

my mum is pretty simple. being the crafting goddess she is. she makes these awesome handbags...but my trouble is whatever i make for her is going to be juvenille compared to what she would make....shes the artsy-est mum around.

the old mans parents: my boyfriends parents are classic. in their 70's, have everything already....was thinking of foodie items , but that seems like a waste seeing as mum is cooking and baking. i really want to wow them and be original and that is the test...
(i cannot knit or crochet or anything)

and all thats left are a few little treats i would like to send thru the mail to my friends and family. i was thinking of little pouches of something (i can zip off the pouches quickly outta felt and stuff.) but what to put in them....
i know all you creative geniuses will be able to assist in my brain blockage.
oh! i should also add that my b/f used to play the bass for 30 odd years, and he sold it --wah-- he has never played for me and i constantly mention how i want him to pick it up again....maybe i could incorporate that into his gift??? i dunno...too much thinking i guess.

wondering...whats this info about wintergreen oil as a medium to transfer a colour copy? is it the same process as thinner and b&w copies? or?
