recycled packaging for cupcakes, cookies, and macarons
This is a fantastic way to repurpose all of those plastic water  bottles, as well as to use up scraps of cardboard.  And it’s an  opportunity to consume your collection of washi tape or pretty ribbon  that have been patiently waiting at the bottom of your craft drawers for  the day they are given purpose.

I picked up my 3-pack of washi tape at Daiso for $1.50 back in August  when I was in California.  A combined 48 yards!  What.  A.  Steal.   Hundreds of these little packages can be made with a $1.50 inventory of  washi tape.  What’s sad is that our households may actually go through  that many plastic bottles in a year.  At least this project grants the  plastic bottles another calling in their lifetime before they hit the  landfill.

For use of two water bottles (ideal for a row of homemade cookies and macarons):
1. Cut off the bottom of two plastic bottles to preferred length.  Fill with treats.
2. Attach the plastic bottles together with tape.

For use of one water bottle (ideal for one mini cupcake, but also great for a smaller serving of cookies and macarons):
1. Cut the bottom of one plastic bottle to preferred height.  Trace on cardboard.  Cut cardboard circle.
2. Place cupcake on cardboard circle.  Cover with bottom of plastic  bottle.  Make sure the plastic bottle sits on top of the cardboard  circle.  Affix tape around the plastic bottle and cardboard circle.
If you do not have washi tape, you may use double-sided tape covered with decorative ribbon.
Make sure to bake your cookies, macarons, and mini cupcake to fit the  diameter of the water bottles.  I haven’t endeavored in baking  macarons, so I splurged on half a dozen for the sake of this post.   Really.  Sweets for blogging’s sake!

Um I’m sorry guys

I apparently accidentally queued some things to this blog that were meant for my craft blog…

That’s what I get for trying to queue things in a hurry right?

I apologize :(

July CAL anyone?

May 16

UPDATE; Or, “Where My Hookers At??”

Hey! I hope everyone is well! The CALs from last month are still going on, as not too many people reported any FOs and I’ve been a lazy bitch and haven’t checked in with anyone *ahem* I figured our CALs seem to turn into two month affairs, so… yeah. I let it go on and on >__>

Soooooo we’ll start discussing stuff for next month’s CALs next week. Or are people just not interested anymore?? :/ I’d appreciate feedback on this.

Hook on, Hookers!

Monroe Shawl Pattern

Here it is in .pdf format. Sorry for the bad picture quality… our scanner here at work sucks and the pix were originally in black and white. The pattern is clear though.

Happy Hooking! (Arrrr!)
