1  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Vanellope Von Schweetz Costume on: November 04, 2013 10:16:37 PM
I love the movie Wreak it Ralph, so I knew I just had to be Vanellope this year for Halloween!

I made my costume and I love how it turned out.
The costume consists of:
  • Seafoam Sweatshirt with Pink Accents
  • Double Layered Brown Pleated Skirt
  • Seafoam tights with candy stripes
  • Black hair with candy decorations
  • Black Shoes

I know everyone knows who she is, but just in case, here is a side by side comparison.

2  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Easter / Hidden Easter Eggs Card on: March 29, 2013 04:58:54 PM
It's time for an Easter egg hunt!  They aren't hidden that hard, but what would be the fun in not being able to enjoy the beautiful eggs!

Originally posted, and silhouette document available, at Instructables: http://www.instructables.com/id/Hidden-Easter-Eggs-Card/


  • Green Paper
  • Other colored papers of choice (I used pastel pink, green, yellow, blue and purple)
  • White Paper
  • Greeting Card
  • Glue and/or Sticky Squares (I used both)
  • Silhouette Cameo
  • File (Uploaded to Instructables)

Pretty easy.  All you need to do is cut out your pieces and glue everything together!  You can do all the same eggs, or all the same colors, or all different eggs, or hundreds of eggs, or one egg, it's all up to you!

3  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Easter / Easter Egg Rice Krispie Treats on: March 29, 2013 04:43:07 PM
I've made these for both Valentine's Day and St. Patrick's Day, so I thought it would be fun to make it for Easter too!  This is originally posted on Instructables: http://www.instructables.com/id/Easter-Egg-Rice-Krispie-Treats/

  • Rice Krispie Mix - Rice Krispies + Marshmallows + Butter
  • Marshmallow Fondant - Marshmallows + bit of water + Powdered Sugar + Food Coloring
  • Corn Syrup
  • Sprinkles

I made about 12 oz total of marshmallow fondant and that was plenty.  It all depends on how you will decorate them though.  If you are going to cover them with stripes or dots, it will take more, if you are going to cover them with a thin layer and sprinkle them, then not so much.  Just remember, this stuff is very sugary, so roll it out thin!

I made the shape by jamming the treat mix into plastic eggs, closing them really tight so the krispies started cracking and then just set it out on wax paper to harden a bit.

I used a couple different methods to decorate them.  You can do them all different or make them all the same.  It's up to you!  As long as they taste delicious, you're set!  Which is your favorite egg?  I love the all dots one!
4  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Clover Weave Card on: March 14, 2013 03:08:30 PM
Another fun card for St. Patrick's Day!  It's cute and fun to put together!

Downloadable Files can be found at original posting: http://www.instructables.com/id/Clover-Weave-Card/



Weave your card!  That's all there is to it.  Make sure to stick down your pieces so they don't get all bunched up or spaced apart.  Once it is done, stick some tape on the back and tape it to the front of a greeting card and you are done!  The reverse kind of looks cool too Smiley

5  COOKING / Dessert / Clover and Rainbow Rice Krispie Treats on: March 01, 2013 11:30:45 AM
I made some Rice Krispie treats for Valentine's Day and wanted to make some for St. Patrick's Day too because they are so simple and delicious!

Valentine Version: http://www.instructables.com/id/Valentine-Rice-Krispie-Treats/

What you need!
  • Rice Kripsies, Marshmallows and Butter = Rice Krispie mix  I sort of used the recipe according to Kelloggs, but I increased everything to make 10 cups of rice kripsies worth
  • Marshmallows (I think I used about a 16 oz bag)
  • Powdered Sugar (think I used about 2 lbs)
  • Food Coloring
  • Green Sprinkles or other decorations of choice
  • Corn Syrup

  • Heart Cookie Cutter or Clover Cutter - I used the smallest ones
  • Circle Cookie Cutter - about 2 inch and 3 inch diameter

Make up some Marshmallow Fondant!  It's delicious and pretty easy to make.  You can just make green and do clovers or you can go for all the colors of the rainbow.  If you want to make rainbows, remember you'll need the most of red, orange the second most and so on.  You'll need very little purple (though it depends on how many you make too).

Gotta shape your Rice Krispie treats!  I used a heart to make the clovers and a circle for the rainbows.  Makes it so you don't really have to invest in special cookie cutters, but you sure can!  If you happen to have a rainbow or clover shaped cookie cutter, use that, it will probably be easier Smiley

Cover your treats in fondant and you are set!  You can make them as fancy or as simple as you want!  They'll be delicious regardless!

6  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Clover Patch Card - Find the 4-Leaf Clover on: February 25, 2013 02:49:56 PM
Wanted to make a fun card for St. Patrick's Day!

Can you find the 4-Leaf clover?  I actually keep forgetting where it is Smiley

The Silhouette Cameo file can be downloaded here: http://www.instructables.com/id/Clover-Patch-Card/

  • Green Paper
  • White Paper
  • Greeting Card (5.5 by 4 inches)
  • Silhouette Cameo
  • Glue
  • Silhouette Cameo File

Pretty easy to get it all together!

  • Cut out the pieces (clover sheet and background)
  • Stick pieces together
  • Stick to Card
  • Send it out

And you are done  Smiley
7  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Valentine's Day / Valentine Cookies on: February 05, 2013 04:28:17 PM
I wanted to make cookies (because they are so fun to eat) that would also work for Valentine's Day!  I decided to try to remake those little Valentines I would pass out in school, but as cookies! 

These were originally posted on Instructables: http://www.instructables.com/id/Valentine-Cookies/



I was able to make 15 cookies and make 3x the icing which worked out perfectly.

I made the dough and used a pizza cutter to cut out rectangles.  Baked them and frosted them and then just went to town with candy melts!  It's fun!  Below are all the different ones I made.  You can make them all the same or make them all different; it's up to you Smiley

8  COOKING / Dessert / Mini Fruit Pizzas on: January 23, 2013 04:28:02 PM
For New Years, my mom decided to make fruit pizzas and as she was getting the sugar cookie crust ready I asked if we could do little fruit pizza cookies instead.  So here they are!

Originally posted here: http://www.instructables.com/id/Mini-Fruit-Pizzas/

- Sugar Cookie Dough
- 2 tsp. Vanilla
- 1/2 c. Sugar
- 1 pkg. Cream Cheese - softened

and Fruit of Choice
Here is what I used:
- 16 oz Strawberry (estimate)
- 9 oz Blueberries (estimate)
- 11 oz can of Mandarine Oranges
- 4-5 Kiwifruits (estimate)

Bake cookies as you normally would.  Cover cookies with your cream cheese topping.  Finish them off with the fruit and that's it!

9  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Homemade Pizza Rolls on: January 23, 2013 04:18:08 PM
Just decided to make my own Pizza Rolls today Smiley

Originally posted here: http://www.instructables.com/id/Pizza-Rolls

- Pizza Dough
- Pizza Sauce
- Mozzarella Cheese
- Topping/Filling of choice, I used Pepperoni

These are really easy to put together and even easier to eat Smiley

10  COOKING / Dessert / DIY Strawberry Sauce on: January 11, 2013 03:58:32 PM
It's so tasty and easy to make!

Original Posting herehttp://www.instructables.com/id/DIY-Strawberry-Sauce/

16 oz Strawberries
1/4 cup Sugar
Bottle - You can use an old strawberry sauce bottle or I used this
Hand Blender or Blender
Sauce Pan
Wooden Spoon
Funnel or something that you can easily pour out of

To start, cut up your strawberries into smaller pieces.
Mix strawberry pieces and sugar in saucepan.
Place on stove on medium heat.
Stir it up.  Don't let it burn.  As it heats, water will come out of the strawberries.  Keep stirring.
It will boil.  Cook it for about 20 minutes.  I think the first time I did this I did longer, but 20 minutes seems to be a good amount of time.  You just want to make sure you get it to a point where lots of water has been released and the strawberry pieces are soft and you can kind of break them apart by stabbing them with the wooden spoon.
Remove from heat and let cool.
Blend with hand blender or pour in blender.  I did this while it was still hot, I wasn't sure if the strawberries would get more solid if it sat longer.
Let cool.
Pour it into a bottle.  I didn't have a funnel so I used a liquid measure.
Keep refrigerated.
Now you are done! 

(A 16 oz package of strawberries made about 1 1/2 cups of strawberry sauce.)
