Throw a Pinterest Party with Therm O Web

It’s true!

One can lose hours on hours of time simply by going to one place…no not the Doctors office or the DMV…..

Pinterest!

Pinterest is a virtual “bulletin” board of ideas…recipes, hairstyles, crafts, sewing projects, places to travel and more…much more!

Sometimes it’s easy to forget where we went in search of ideas before Pinterest came along. Today Designer Daniela Dobson shares her take on a Pinterest inspired project…

Pinterest source and Original source

I used the banners on my layout except I used them horizontally and not vertically. I replaced the stitching with hand cut strips of patterned paper. The original banners are a part of an advent calendar and they have numbers. I punched confetti circles and scattered them randomly between the banners.

We’re back with another one of our favorite recipes for the holidays!

Peppermint Bark

Cookie Cutter Peppermint Bark

*Recipe note: I halved this recipe to make 6 small snowflakes. Following the full recipe for 1 full sheet of bark or 12 regular sized shapes.

Recipe adapted from: allrecipes

Ingredients:
8oz brown chocolate (your favorite)
8oz white chocolate
2 tsp vegetable oil, divided
1/2 tsp peppermint extract, divided
candy canes or peppermint candies, crushed

If making one sheet of bark, line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. Smooth out any wrinkles. Prepare candy canes by unwrapping and tossing in a plastic bag. Smash with a meat tenderizer, rolling pin or other heavy object. Don’t pulverize the candies but do make sure any huge chunks are broken down. Over a bowl, transfer contents of plastic bag to a mesh strainer. Gently tape and shake the strainer. The purpose of this is to remove any candy cane dust, only leaving the chunks to be used for the bark.

In a heat safe bowl, add brown chocolate and half of the vegetable oil. I used candy melts because it’s what I had on hand. Melt chocolate at 50% power in 30 second intervals. Stir well after each heating. When fully melted, stir in half of the peppermint extract. Pour milk chocolate (or whichever variety you’ve chosen) onto prepared pan and spread out evenly. Alternately, divide equally among molds or cookie cutters. I used a small cookie scoop to divide among my snowflake cavities. Sprinkle with a small amount of candy cane pieces, preferably some of the smaller pieces. Transfer to the fridge for 30-60 minutes or until fully set and hardened.

Repeat melting process with white chocolate: white chocolate plus 1 tsp vegetable oil in a heat safe bowl. Heat at 50% power in 30 second intervals, stiring well each time. Add the remaining 1/4 tsp peppermint extract, stir well. Pour over brown chocolate, or divide equally among molds or shapes. Tap tray or mold to spread chocolate out. Sprinkle with remaining candy cane pieces. Transfer to the fridge for an additional 30-60 minutes or until fully hardened.

Break sheet bark with a heavy object or carefully remove chocolate from molds. If using silicone molds, they should easily pop out or peel away. Store in the fridge in an airtight container.

These are perfect for packaging up and gifting during the holidays. ENJOY!

Happy 12/12/12!

Baby Bib by Jenifer Cowles

Therm O Web Supplies:

Heat-N-Bond Iron-On Vinyl

Other Supplies:
Velcro
Scraps of fabric (The Vegetable fabric is a piece from Pat Sloan’s new line “Eat Your Fruits and Veggies” and isn’t it perfect for these bibs?)

I thought I would show you how easy it would be to make your own bibs using Heat-N-Bond Iron-on vinyl. These are really easy using scraps of fabric some Iron-On vinyl and a piece of velcro, they are so easy you could make a bunch for yourself or they would be a wonderful gift at a baby shower.

Step 1:  Gather supplies.  I drew out a pattern by tracing an old bib we had lying around.

Step 2:  Cut out 1 each of main fabric, backing fabric and Iron-on vinyl.

Step 3:  Iron-on the vinyl according to the directions on the package to the main fabric piece.

Step 4: With right sides together sew the main and backing pieces together leaving a 3″ opening to turn it right side out.

Step 5: Turn right side out and top stitch 1/4″ around the edge.

Step 6: Sew on your velcro.

Now admire your work and make a dozen more.

Thank you so much for taking the time to look at my project today.  Make sure you stop by again tomorrow for more ideas for that special little one in your life!
