Make Chocolate Covered Pilgrim Hat Treats. Simple Pretty Sunflower Cookies. Paint chip greeting cards | Chica and Jo - StumbleUpon. Like most of you, I’m sure, I tend to go through a lot of paint chips when trying to decide on a color to paint a room. And when the project is done, I toss the paint chips into a box I keep in my craft room.
They are the perfect “I’ll use these one day” items, right? Well I stumbled upon the box a few days ago and realized just how many I’d collected over the years. Oh the memories this pile brings back! No matter how I got this collection, I knew it was time to finally do something with them. Can you believe those were made from plain white cardstock and boring old paint chips?
First I cut some ordinary 8.5″ x 11″ white cardstock in half crosswise, then folded it. For the square mosaic design, I grabbed a bunch of smoky blue paint chips and cut them into 1 inch squares. For the green card, I cut all my green paint chips into strips of random widths. For the orange card, I took the same strip idea but turned it on an angle. I spent a lot of time on the final card.

Jo and I have been doing lots of projects over the last month or so for Little Jo’s birthday party, and I want to show you one of the projects I did for part of the party decor. We found ourselves needing some round gems in just the right color of teal. If they could be edible, all the better.
So I did some shopping and some research and came up with everything I needed to make hard candy jewels. And I gotta tell you, this turned out to be one of the most fun projects I’ve done in ages! By the way, there was a lot of trial and error as I figured out just the right techniques for making hard candy, and I’ll tell you about that at the end of this post. But for now, here is the right way to do it! You’ll need to pick up a couple of custom supplies for making hard candy. Before we even think about turning that stove on, we’ve got lots of prep work to do. Fortunately, it’s very easy to calibrate your candy thermometer. Next, you want to cover your work area with aluminum foil. Okay, all set? Oreo Turkey Cookies (Explored) | Flickr - Photo Sharing! - StumbleUpon.
