Cupcakes!

Who doesn't love them?  And these little cuties have NO calories!
I was thinking about those pretty cupcake wrappers that could be cut with my Cricut and went 'outside of the box' again with what to put in them.  After seeing bath scrubbies everywhere, I decided they'd look adorable in one of the wrappers, so, I went to work.

The next time I was out shopping, I grabbed some bath scrubbies, came home, and cut out a few cupcake wrappers. Here's one taken apart for a closer look:


Placed in a cello bag with some curling ribbon, it's now a cute, little gift or shower/party favor. Don't you think?  
They are for sale - if you're interested, email me or contact me through Apple Street Crafts on facebook.  

I have now proven that I still 'play with paper' in between taking apart pallets and sawing/sanding!  

Have a great week everyone and thanks for stopping by the Cottage!

  8. Love the idea. I would put a round soap into them and color coordinate them, i.e., pink, rose; purple, lavender.

Frankenstein & His Bride

Halloween will be here in a couple of days and if you need a quick craft - I've got you covered!

This was another of my "Spur Of The Moment" ideas.  I was working on a Christmas craft (that I'll share soon) using paint stirrers. This part of the paint stirrer was actually 'scrap' from the other project, but I hated to waste it, so, I grabbed some paint and got to work.  This shade of green wasn't my first choice, but, since this project was 'spur of the moment', and I wasn't running to the store, I couldn't be picky.   After the green paint dried, I painted some black hair and glued on two eyes.  With a sharpie, a nose, mouth, and some scars were added.  On the 'Bride' some red lips and white streaks completed her look.  
So what do you do with them?  Add a magnet to the back and you have a new refrigerator magnet, or, glue a pin on the back and wear it on your jacket.   This would also be a great project to do with kids, don't you …

Candy Corn

October seems to be flying by and before you know it, Halloween will be here.  I had some wood scraps sitting in a pile, so I decided to make some candy corn.  

I made myself a pattern in two different sizes.  

This was a "spur of the moment" project, and it fought me every inch of the way.  For starters, while I was cutting one of them out, it split right down the middle.  Thanks to a little super glue, you can't tell which one, can you?
Next, I started painting and didn't use a base coat/primer.  Needless to say, I needed many coats of paint.  Yes, it was my own fault!
 Finally, I got the paint to cover and I used a sponge to transition one color to the next.  Out came the sander and the candy corn was distressed!
Time for sealer.  While I was spraying, I ended up with a drip. Because I'm so patient - NOT - I decided to fine-sand it off and re-spray it.  Well, I made a mess of it!  Not to be out-smarted by a piece of wood, I drilled a little hole:
Pretty, huh? I grabb…

Cider Donut Muffins

I want to share this recipe with you before all the apple cider disappears. I made them a few weeks ago and they were a huge hit. I can't take credit for this one, though, because I found it over at Baked By Rachel. Be sure to stop over and send her some love, OK?
Doesn't that look delicious?  Here's the recipe:
