Easy Smores and Some Gifts I Made

We decided to make smore's the other night without a campfire. First we crushed some graham crackers in a baggie, then poured it into a small bowl. Then we melted some chocolate chips in the microwave in a small bowl. Then we put a couple of large marshmallows on a small plate and microwaved them for 10-20 seconds. Then we put a fork in them and dipped a spoon in the chocolate and drizzled it over the marshmallow. Then we sprinkled the graham cracker crumbs over the chocolate, Yum!

So when we were done we had all some lovely melted chocolate left and not wanting it to go to waste the kids decorated their faces!

Here's a Chocolate Chauncey!

And a Chocolate Sloan!

I wanted to show you some presents I made for a dear friend of mine. I gave her a gift certificate for a new purse and these are the accessories I made to go in it. I found this pretty green floral print fabric at DI for $.50. I decorated everything with fabric yoyo's and buttons from my button jar and some yellow gingham fabric from an old crib sheet. I got a little carried away, but it was so fun!

On the left is a insulated water bottle holder, an Altoid tin filled with Milk Duds (her favorite candy) to the right of it is a package of Trident Gum decoupaged with the fabric, then below is a checkbook cover, below it is a wallet that I made (I took an old wallet apart for the pattern and zipper) a business card holder, to the right is a tissue holder.

The notebook has a decoupaged clip on it and a hair elastic to keep it shut and pen are decoupaged with the fabric, a cosmetic bag, a bottle of green lotion, a Burt's Bees Lip Balm decoupaged, a sewing kit and a key chain.

There's a great giveaway over at Tea Rose Home!

Its So Very Cheri said...

Hey Carol-You are such a sweetie.
Love the chocolate painting-cute kiddos.

Sorry I haven't been by much-you know the horrors I have been having with Google-basically on and off since I started blogging. I decided after weeks and weeks of non-stop Google issues, I am throwing my hands up and making much needed visits.
I hope you have a Very Merry Christmas and hope you can come by for a visit.
