I’d like to add a few items for Christmas presents. ~*~ You can take the jewel cases for the cd’s and you pop them open and replace all the info. About the cd with scrap pieces of cloth or something else and make them into little cubes to hold stuff in or even hang on the wall. ~*~ Juice pouch purses are really cute and you can find numerous patterns online for making them. ~*~ I was watching the show stylicious and they made scarves out of old sweaters, they took two sweaters that complemented each other and cut them into strips and sewed them together to make a really cute scarf. http://www.diynetwork.com/ diy/cr_clothing/article/0,2025 ,DIY_13751_4585960,00.html They also have some other really cute ideas for other things to. ~*~ I plan on putting a couple of these in my kids stockings its snowman soup. http://www.bevscountr ycottage.com/christmas/snowman -soup.html ~*~ I don’t remember where I got this it’s reindeer poop I thought it was really cute Reindeer Poop Materials: ½cup butter or margarine 2 cups granulated sugar ½cup milk 2 teaspoons cocoa ½cup peanut butter 3 cups oatmeal (not instant) ½cup chopped nuts (optional) Instructions: In a large saucepan, mix butter, sugar, milk and cocoa together. Bring the mixture to a boil while stirring constantly. Boil for 1 minute. Remove from heat and stir in the remaining ingredients. Drop by the teaspoon-full onto wax paper and allow to harden. They will set up in approximately 30-60 minutes. This will keep for several days without refrigerating, up to 2 weeks refrigerated and 2-3 months frozen. Pack into ziplock sandwich bags. Print the poem below. Cut it out and staple the tag to the top of the baggie. Here's the poem: Reindeer Poop I woke up with such scare when I heard Santa call… "Now dash away, dash away, dash away all!" I ran to the lawn and in the snowy white drifts, those nasty reindeer had left "little gifts". I got an old shovel and started to scoop, neat little piles of "Reindeer Poop!" But to throw them away, seemed such a waste, so I saved them, thinking-you might like a taste! As I finished my task, which took quite awhile. Old Santa, passed by and he sheepishly smiled. And I heard him exclaim as he was in the sky... "Well they're not potty trained, but at least they can fly!" ~*~ Another idea is a purse made out of old jeans. Just cut the jeans where they come together between the legs and sew it closed, Then take your scrap to make a handle or ribbon an old belt or anything you want be creative. You can buy a zipper to close it up or something else or not have it close at all, you can find patterns online there's a ton if you just want an example. I made these for my girls and they love them, I even made one out of an old jean skirt.
