Nutter Butter Rudolph

These were a big hit at my family's Christmas Eve get-together last year. All you need is:
  • nutter butter cookies
  • chocolate chips (eyes)
  • red m&m's (nose)
  • mini pretzels (antlers)
  • frosting

Using the frosting, attach the eyes, nose and antlers to the cookie. I saw the idea in an older issue of a Family Fun magazine

Nutter Butter Cookie Creations

I've seen these ghosts on several different blogs. So not really a person to give credit to . . . But I loved making and eating these guys. All you need to make the ghosts is Nutter Butter cookies, almond bark, and mini chocolate chips. Melt the almond bark, dip the cookie in and then put on the eyes and mouth.

Last year for a Christmas party, I made these reindeer - found the idea in a Family Fun Magazine. These guys were a bit easier than the ghosts. All you need is the Nutter Butters, pretzels, choc. chips, red M&Ms and frosting. Dab some frosting on each piece to assemble to the cookie.

Super Saturday Crafts

We had a craft day (Super Saturday) at our church last Saturday. I didn't sign up for all the crafts, but here are the ones I did end up making.
1. Fabric Strip Flowers - We took a long strip of fabric that was about 1-1.5" wide and using a needle and thread, stitched a running stitch up the edge of one side, then gathered it and twisted it into a circle and stitched it closed. Then I stitched on a button in the center. We glued an alligator clip to the back so it can be used as a hair clip.
2. Stamped Tile Coasters - These were made in sets of 4. We used "Stayz On" ink and stamed onto tiles. (there's a good tutorial for this on Trey and Lucy)
3. Gift Jars - There were 3 different options for these jar mixes. I made 2 of the Santa's Peppermint Chocolate bars. The ingredients are measured and stacked in the jars. Then you tie a paper on the jar with the recipe and any other ingredients that need to be added (like butter or eggs) and how to make it.
4. Hand Soap w/ Transparancy - The text was printed on transparancy sheets and then we cut them up and stuck them in an empty soap bottle. Then we poured in the soap.
5. Quoted Tile - These are the tiles that I actually cut all the vinyl for. I ended up cutting about 82 sheets of these (2 different quotes). They are 12"x12" and the vinyl was rubbed onto the tile. I can't find my plate holder to display it on.

There were other crafts . . .
1. zipper/cell phone charms
2. pumpkin spice muffin mix
3. hot cocoa mix
4. fabric backed plates (mod podge fabric to the back of a clear, glass plate (not diswasher safe)
