Easter Bunny Brownies in a Jar

I made these for my 2 older daughters for Easter 2014:

These were fun to make.  The tags were a little time consuming.  I used pop dots for some dimension on the "Happy Easter" label.

I was able to cut all the components at one time, by setting it up like this:

The bottom right, where the jar ring is, I used metallic cardstock.  Since it was much thicker then the rest.  I copied the file on top of itself, so that just those pieces did a double cut.  I think next time I would use a lighter piece of cardstock for the grass.  It cut the fine pieces well enough, but the cardstock layers kind of split.

Seasoning Jars - Vinyl Labels

My daughters and I make our own Taco Seasoning and Lawry's Seasoning (Emeril Essence).  For Christmas I made both girls little jars and filled them.  I did colors to match their kitchens.  Forgot to take a picture of them filled.

I have made quite a few for our different pantry items using these: Design #41609   so I used the same font so they would all match.

Ribbon Bobbins

 I am making some Plastic Bobbins for my ribbon out of Flexible Cutting Mats.

When Ribbon goes on sale at Michael's I try to get there to get a few.  Eventually I will have all the colors in the 3 sizes: Loop, 1/8in and 1/4 inch.  There is nothing that drives me more crazy then working on something and not having the right color or size of ribbon.  I know...a little OCD there, but I am sure I am not alone.

The Bobbin is 2.25" x 2.50"

I store them in a box/drawer in a rolling cart I got from Joann's that hubby made dividers for out of foam board.  I still have quite a few to wind on bobbins. I am sure it will fill a couple boxes/drawers.

I bought the plastic Flexible Cutting Mats at Walmart, and had made an SVG to cut with SCAL on my Cricut.  I am not offering the file because there are quite a few free files all over the internet now.

Below I have posted the settings to cut it on the Cricut.

  • Cricut:
    • Deep Blade
    • Speed:  Low
    • Pressure:  High
    • Blade Depth: 6
    • Multi-Cut: 2

    Mini Comp and Bookmark Cheer

    I made these Cheer books for my daughter's Cheer Coaches with Paw Print Paperclip Bookmarks:

     I made these Paw Print Paperclip Bookmarks for girls on the Cheer Team.  The Paw Print is a design that is meant to go on a Hair Clippie.  I cut a slit in the back, put it the paperclip and hot glued it closed.  Not fabulous looking, but satisfactory and the paperclip should stay in.

    I made this one for my Granddaughter who is in Kindergarten and is a Cheerleader:

    Here is another Cheer Book set:

    I only have 65 more Mini Comp books left in my stash!  Once I get down to 20, I can go to Walgreen's and stock up again!!!!!   It was really hard to  make myself NOT go this Back to School season when they go on sale!!!  I's a sickness!!

    No-Sew Braided Fleece Throw - Cheer

     I made this for myself!  Something that hardly ever happens!

    It's nice to cuddle up in at those chilly Fall Football games!!

     Close up view:

    The Braided Edge tutorial can be found here:

    Double Layered No-Sew "Braided" Fleece Blanket Tutorial

    The fringe strips around the edge are 1.5 inches long, and 1 inch wide.  Instead of cutting a slit in the ends of the fringe strips, I used my Crop-A-Dile to punch holes, so they would be more uniform.

    In The Hoop Zipper Bag

    I made this as a Christmas gift for Lilly.  A little late posting.

    The straps weren't in the project, but thanks to ALOT of help from the crafty people on SewForum,  I was able to add them.

    The bag is done entirely In the Hoop.  The strap is done on the sewing machine.

    I made it long enough for it to be a Cross-Body bag.  It is perfect size for her phone.

    Coffee To Go Flip It Card

    I made this for a good friend of mine for her Birthday.

    I adapted the Silhouette version of the Basic Flip Card design, merged it with the Silhouette Coffee Cup to Go Design to make a To Go Cup Flip card.  This one does not technically "swing" because the gift card was a little wider than the coffee cup, so it just flips.

    The Sentiment on the front and the Happy Birthday are both Print and Cut Bracket tags.

    If I make another one, I hope to remember to ink the edges of the cup.  I think it would have given it some dimension.
