When a Foodie gets Crafty…

CATEGORIES: General Crafts, Sara

I wanted to show you some of the fun I’ve been having with my Silhouette machine!

If you’ve been around here long enough, you know I love beautiful packaging.  The great thing about a cute little box or bag is that it makes it perfectly acceptable to give away just a tiny bit of food.   These little paper boxes were perfect for a little bag of Pretzel Turtles.

Each box was just a simple template on the Silhouette and they each took only about 5 minutes to make.

I’m kind of in love with the flowers.  I just cut out a few different sizes of basic flower shapes and layered them on top of each other.  A quick ruffling of the edges and a button or gem in the middle and wah-la!  Fancy-Schmancy.

Cupcake wrappers are so trendy right now, as are cupcake toppers and they’re so easy to make on the Silhouette.  I see many of these in my future.

Speaking of cupcakes, check out this cute box I saw on the Silhouette blog.  Can’t wait to make these to give away some of these, or these, or these!

To play around with the heat transfer material, I decided to make a shirts for my older boys.  I let my 4 year old pick a picture he liked and wasn’t surprised when it was this guy:

I ripped off the concept for this next shirt from Make it and Love it.  I just put the design on a piece of knit and stitched it right on the shirt.  Super cute!

And since my sewing machine actually came out of its deep dark abyss, I decided to make the most of it and ended up sewing all weekend!  (Well after my friend Jenny came over and showed me how to thread it correctly did a major repair so it was usable).  I bought these cute Halloween fabrics to use as toppers for Pie in a Jar, but decided instead to turn them into a cute banner to hang from my staircase.  I used the Silhouette to add the black spiderwebs- love how it turned out (and I’m SO in love with the owl fabric in there- can you see that one??)

Next up- vinyl!  I bought this dry erase board at Target for 5 bucks and transformed it into a weekly menu board.  (And just so you know, I wrote all of that in purely for show.  If you follow us on Facebook you know that at least 2 of the days last week should have said, “whatever cereal you can find in the pantry”)

I made this cute jar for my 2 1/2 year old.  Are you wondering what “Big Boy Treats” are?  Basically it’s a way to bribe him with gobs of sugar to use the toilet so I am forced to change a few less diapers each day encourage good behavior through positive reinforcement 🙂

This might be my favorite project, and I wish there was a way to better capture it in a photo.  You can buy these glass blocks at craft stores.  I’m sure you’ve all seen them.  Usually people put twinkly lights inside and write an inspirational quote on the front, or use a holiday graphic, etc.  I was staring at the block in the store wondering what to make when I had the thought to put a picture on the inside.  I love how it turned out.  The picture is on the inside, but on the far side and I put the vinyl words “Forever Family” on the very front so you get a cool 3 dimensional look.  Can you imagine a gorgeous baby portrait in there with the word “Precious” on the outside?  Or pics of your kids with their names?  So cute.
**I get TONS of questions about how I got my photo inside the glass block in the photo below.  The glass block has an opening at the bottom, I just cut my photo to fit perfectly on the block, put a small piece of double stick tape on each corner and then slipped it though the opening and stuck a spoon in there to push the photo against the glass to stick.  That’s it!

Well that’s about all I can fit in one post!  I’d love to hear your crafty ideas, or see links of fun things you’ve been making.  Feel free to link in the comment section- I’d love to be inspired while all of my crafting supplies are still spread out all over my kitchen so please share!

  8. Who new that there was a limit for the # of comments, eh? WOW!! So here's hoping that I get picked amongst the 5000+ commenters. I would love to use this machine to cut vinyl birdies to put on my door frames, window sills, and base boards. They would make me smile.

    I found you thru How Does She. . . I have bookmarked your blog. I am eager to take a look around.

  9. I love Our Best Bites! Thanks for the opportunity to win a Silhouette (and of course for all of the super yummy recipes!) I would love to use the Silhouette for heat transfers to make customized onsies for baby shower gifts!

  10. This machine makes me think of Dr. Suess- "Oh the thinks you can Think!", except it's "oh the crafts you can come up with (using this amazing machine) if you only try!"
    Crossing fingers!

  11. i fell in love with this machine the moment i saw the cupcake wrappers! would so LOOOOOOVE to have my own Silhouette! keeping my fingers crossed!

  12. Ok I already entered on the other one, but wow, I am amazed, If I don't win, I think I'm going to have do some hinting for Christmas—maybe just telling since hints don't seem to work at our house. For sure going to get a glass block to experiment with.

  13. Obviously, my chances are slim if you've already had over 5000 entries, but I'll give it a shot anyway. I love the variety of projects you can make with the Silhouette. Whoever came up with the idea is a genius! I love the shirt, bunting, and other crafty items you made with this baby! So cute!

  14. Those little plastic cupcake boxes are so cute! They look like baseball display cases, which led me to the idea that they would be adorable as party favors for a little boy's birthday party. Can you picture it? Little baseball cupcakes?

    All of your things are so cute, too! I love love love the banner and O's little treat jar. Good work, Sara!

  15. WOW! You have been going a bit crazy Sara, but then you have always been super creative! I would love to win so pick me! I love the glass block idea and the personalized T-shirt. The boys will love picking out their own designs.


  16. OMGoodness…oh the things I could do with that Silhouette!!!

    I have wanted one for a LONG time, but alas do not have the funds.
    My granddaughter would sure be sportin' some adorable things, and my house would be looking SO crafty!!!

    Thanks for the chance, and good luck to all!!


  17. I am entering the contest here since you reached your capacity on the other post!

    I would love to make all sorts of things with vinyl and being able to make a t-shirt sounds fun! Having that machine would be awesome!

  18. I would love to win. I love crafty things and this makes it possible for a busy mom. I love the shirts, and the packaging.

  19. Wow! That is amazing! I love the cupcake wrappers! I have a cake/cupcake business, Slice at a Time, and that would come in handy!!

  20. Here is my comment:

    I find myself bookmarking far too many of your posts and need to find a better way to keep them forever – your blog is like the best food magazines I get, where I tear out more pages to keep then I throw in the trash!

    I love your site. (Oh, yeah, and I hope I win – this thing is way cool!)

  21. I tried commenting on the original post this morning, but didn't see it post so here goes:

    I would LOVE one of these! How to pick just one way I would use this? So I won't, I would love this for vinyl, scrapbooking, and other craft projects along with all the other features.

    P.S. It's my birthday tomorrow… if it helps the random drawing! ;0)

  22. I have been dying over this machine! It is simply amazing! I would kill for one…well maybe not kill but hurt severly!

  23. I just discovered your site and can't wait to cook. I love the crafty Silhouette, too. I'm envisioning Christmas food gifts in lovely packages.

  24. I'd love to win one of those–just think of all the great Christmas gifts I could make! I really want to try glass etchings.

  25. I am pretty much obssessed with your blog. I grew up having a really crafty, creative mom and am now wanting to be her basically. So seeing how easy this stuff is on the sillouette made me all giddy!

  26. K, so the chance are now like 1 in a million but I'm trying anyways. So many fun things to do with the machine. Thanks for the chance!

  27. Love it, love it, love it!!! I had no idea you could do so many things with those. I've just started to love doing different crafts and projects over the past few months and now I can't stop.

  28. What fabulous projects! I have no idea how you do it all with those 3 adorable little ones!!! Three about did me in!!! Thanks for all you do!! Oh- I would love to have that machine!!!!

  29. I would love to win a silhouette. I love that you can cut so many designs out of so many materials. I especially like the big boy treats.

  30. O My that is some way cool and very pretty stuff.I've been trying to find something simple and very creative to do with my children.The possibilities are end less,with the silhouette.Money saving Christmas here I come,(if i get to be lucky enough to win)

  31. The Silhouette machine is amazing-and I love everything you did with it. The possibilities of what you can do with a Silhouette are endless. I think I'd mostly want one to make shirts and other clothing and accessories.

  32. Love, Love, Love your blog I make so many things from it and have a ton of complements on everything I make. I would love to win the Silhouette Machine.

  33. Who would of thought that a machine like this can create so many expressions, it looks like so much fun, I am always in the house this would be a great way to keep me occupied, who knows might see a side of me that I never saw before or develop a talent I never had. Love the pics, they are so adorable and it don't look like is was homemade, that is a good thing. May I can design boxes.

  34. I LOVE all you can do with the Silhouette! My daughter and I did a tea party theme for her 3 year old's birthday. We borrowed a Cricket from my friend. But we went crazy and everything turned out so fun. So I would LOVE to win the Silhouette so I can continue making all the fun things you can do with it. The ideas are limitless (and so I don't have to borrow my friend's machine in the future).

  35. You guys are great…..I love all of your recipes, crafty ideas and kid friendly fun. I am so excited I found you guys.. Thanks for all the hard work you do, I am always waiting for your next idea/post.

  36. Wow. I love the pics you posted and love the ideas. I want to make cute homemade valentines and photo books with one. I love that you can make food look so good inside the package too!

  37. My friend has one and LOVES it! So would I. I love your fun food recipes and am regularly telling others how much I use the blog! Thanks and keep up the good work!!

  38. I thought at first…..nah I don't need this….. But WAIT……. After I saw all the wonderful things you made with it, I'm in like! I love giving little gifts of food. This just easily makes it so much more special!

  39. I was the 5000 comment on the Silhouette post so I didn't get to do my bonus entry. I am definitely a fan on Facebook because you guys are AMAZING!

  40. Whoa. I could totally use the Silhouette as the excuse I needed to go on a cupcake rampage (I've been dying to), but I would love to have it for scrapbooking, T-shirt (well, onesie) making, and leaving vinyl messages to my son on his bathroom mirror, bedroom mirror, booster chair, and maybe even his window in the car. And I'm going to have to steal your idea for the glass block; we're due to have portraits done soon and this would be super awesome.

  41. I am so amazed by your Blog "Our Best Bites." I look forward to it everyday, truly! It's my go to when I want newness or sassy change! You never let me down!

    This is some heck of a giveaway! Luv it, luv it, luv it! Who ever wins this one is someone VERY LUCKY and VERY BLESSED! (Why not ME, ME, ME???)

    Wishing you continued success, and many blessings,

    I wear slippers!

  42. I am loving your blog!! & having a silhouette giveaway is icing on the cake!!

    Speaking of cake… I'd love to make some festive holiday cupcake wrappers

  43. WOW! I want one!! I love everything you have done- those cupcake holders are awesome and that halloween banner!! WOW!

  44. I think what you can do is AMAZING! My mom kept most of the craft gene for herself. I would LOVE to have this machine!!
    I also share your "phobia" so to speak, about letting my kids help in the kitchen. I thought i would go bananas before they got a mini muffin pan filled on saturday!!
    I am a FB fan!

  45. After receiving multiple birthday gifts with darling hand made cards, my daughters informed me that I am "not a crafty mom!" Maybe with your fancy machine I could become one! You made some *VERY* cute projects. : )

  46. Oh my I hadn't even heard of a Silhouette unti I read your post! I love what you do any way and now I am totally in awe of you even more!!! Claudia

  47. You are so crafty and talented. I love your ideas for the Silhouette machine. It makes everything so professional looking. Thanks for sharing!

  48. I would be most excited about being able to create things with the vinyl, it would be so versatile in the home for signs & projects.

  49. Want want want! I love the idea of making my own beautiful wrapping for baked goods and gifts, and making clothes for me and my daughter!

  50. Who knew it could make all that wonderful stuff. I can think of a million places I could use it. Thanks for sharing your creative talents!

  51. Thank you, Sara, for sharing your wonderful creativity with all of us. That is one amazing machine! What's not to love about it. One is only limited by their imagination. Love your Silhouette!

  52. This would be so much fun! I think I'd be most likely to use it for little food gift boxes, but probably also non-food gift boxes and decorations! I love a well-wrapped gift!

  53. I would love to use this to catch up on my Hawaii scrapbook that I started several years ago… 🙂 But the feature I'm most enthused about are the temporary tattoos. I think once my son is older, he would LOVE homemade tattoos!

  54. Are you serious?!? A Silhouette? I'm excited about the heat transfer. I never knew these could do that! I am a scrapbooker so I'm also thrilled at the idea of owning one of these and jazzing up my paper work. Thanks for the fun giveaway! Hope I win!

  55. I'm not crafty or clever with paper, but I think I could be if I had this machine. I love your site and revisit often when I'm not sure what to have for dinner. Thanks!

  56. Wow – see what happens when you're away from the computer for a few days.

    You've gone crazy – love the projects!!! In fact, I believe that's how I came to this site/blog in the first place – it was from a crafting blog.

    Anyway – yes, please enter me, please, please, please.

  57. I would use the machine to do all of those things but I love the heat transfer idea. How fun to make your own t-shirts. I love the gray bag on the website. So awesome!

  58. The vinyl cutting looks like a really cool decorating tool and I would love to make the cupcake holders!!! Too cute!

  59. That looks so awesome!! I would love to win one. I would share it with my sister all the time!! We love crafty things!!

  60. I've never seen the pens that can be used in the Silhouette instead of the blades – too cool. I think I'd start out by letting my daughters design their own paper with it. After that…the possibilities are endless!

  61. Boy would I love to make all kind of cutie things for my grandkids…all 12 of them (plus 3 more on the way). That would be so much fun!!!

  62. I can't decide which of the features I'm most excited about! I would like to try them all. I was just thinking the other day how awesome yet impossible it would be to get one of these machines for starting my new little business! I would LOVE to win!

  63. I like to cook a lot, but my wife does more of the crafting. Something like this might help her overlook the mess I make in the kitchen!

  64. What a super wonderful give-a-way!!! I would love to use the Silhouette machine for the endless vinyl, scrapbooking and cardmaking possibilities! You ladies make my day everytime I get on your site. Thank you for all you do!


  65. Would love to win one of these! I want to use the vinyl and make a monogram to finish up the wall in my entry! Thanks so much for the opportunity to win one of these!

  66. I would also love one of these little machines, the ideas just keep coming!! Maybe, I'll be the lucky one 🙂 But I/m sure who ever does win will have so much fun with it!!

  67. So cute!!!! I LOVE the cupcake holder! Perfect idea for a little girl party….I have a daughter turning 8 on Halloween.
    I am hoping to be the winner of this amazing machine! I am soooo itching to get my hands on one. 🙂

    By the way…..thank you for the incredible garlic swirls recipe! Not only has it become a regular at our house but I take it to functions and I get amazing praises! It makes my day! lol
    I use mozerella, parmesan and cheddar in mine…the three combined make it just right for our family! You guys are amazing….thanks for sharing your talents with us!

  68. I've never seen this amazing machine before, but I see why it's so popular and why your comment section from the entry post is full–I don't know if it counts if we comment in this section, but that thing is amazing! It's so hard to choose between wanting to do fun things with vinyl or paper, but when I saw the adorable paper boxes & things you made on this post, you sold me on the paper crafts. How fun! Thanks for sharing your ideas!

  69. Reading your blog just brightens my day. I love your food ideas and the new silhouette machine is amazing. What fun to have one and do such creative things ..Every project seems to be a favorite of mine.

  70. Wow! This would be so much fun to play with. My teenagers would love helping me create so many cute things to give to friends and neighbors. Oh and FAMILY 🙂

  71. Ooh, do I have to choose just one thing? It looks like a great present making tool. I'd probably use the markers quite a bit.

  72. I love it when the Foodie turns crafty…I like to do a little of this and a little of that too! I would love to own a Silhouette!!

  73. Maybe I should wait to buy my glass blocks until AFTER I win? Or maybe I beg my friend to use her Cricut??? I can see a lot of those in the near-Christmas future.

  74. Oh that looks like great fun and the start of more crazes (my husbands name for new hobbies), I would love to win but understand that you probably don't send to the UK.

  75. Oh, I just love the Silhouette! I would love to upgrade my kids' clothes with cute pictures, but I'd also love to try the glass block photo frame, and of course the cute cupcake ideas! This would keep me busy for weeks!!

  76. So, I've "liked" on fb, here's my bonus comment. I still can't decide the most useful thing to do with the Silhouette, but it seems like a splendiferous tool to begin an etsy shop with!

  77. All your stuff (food and crafts) are so inspirational. I stumbled across your blog last week and have made 3 of your recipes already. and they were allll delicious. Your chicken and dumplings is now a family favorite. My 4 year old couldnt get enough of it! (or my husband 🙂 ) Thanks for all your inspiration and giving away a silhouette machine! Holy cow!! it keeps getting better! Thanks!!!!!

  78. You have completely sold me on this! I would L-O-V-E LOVE to have one! This would be perfect for bake sales for PTO and wrapping up our community service projects for Brownies!

  79. I would love a Silhouette! I am most excited to use it for scrapbooking projects and other paper projects,like cupcake toppers and banners. I am also anxious to try out some vinyl projects!

  80. How fun! I really do love the menu idea and the picture idea! Those things are SO handy. It turns an uncrafty person into a crafty person!!! (Like me!). 🙂

  81. I would love to win this amazing machine! I facilitate a youth mentor program for high-risk young ladies and we could do SO MUCH with it! Thank you for making this opportunity available!!

  82. Maybe that's why I couldn't get my post to work yesterday. Anyways, I LOVE the containers. I'm with Sara – I think dressing up a food gift makes it that much better and I love to give food gifts around the holidays (I have a great salad dressing set w/ bread mix, cloth napkins, and decorated salad servers in a salad bowl to giveaway this year). *crosses her fingers*

  83. I would LOVE to win a Silhouette, those things are awesome. And your projects are so darling and inspiring, you get my creative juices flowing!

  84. I'm so glad I visited your FB page to try to find out why there was a 5000 comment limit! How rude of Blogger lol. If I got a Silhouette I would try glass etching first. I've always wanted to try it! Then I'm sure I would go insane with paper decor and iron-ons.

  85. I have really been wanting the Silhouette! I love everything that it does. I think I would try out the vinyl options first, then the heat transfers, and then everything else 🙂

  86. The Silhouette looks amazing. I could have so much fun! I love all the yummy recipes you post on your blog, you have helped me to become a better cook.

  87. Am I too late to enter to win the Silhouette Digital Craft Cutter? Oh I hope not! I'm already a Facebook fan!

    What Silhouette Digital Craft Cutter feature I'm most excited about? It starts with NO CARTRIDGES! NONE! (This makes me so happy!) That's the appeal for me. AND I'm such a computer nerd that it makes sense to me to have a cutter hooked up to my computer. So having a Silhouette would be awesome!!!

    I've actually been collecting my pennies hoping to buy a Digital Craft cutter that connected to my computer. All the extras like cutting vinyl for the glass etching & walls and the heat transfers and the paper craft cutting is just icing on the cake.

  88. I love the paper flowers, I think they're darling and look easy to do, even for the non-crafty type person like me.

  89. I've been wanting, nay, NEEDING one for so long that I thought I'd figured out everything I could possibly do with one. But then I saw your heat transfer shirt with the jersey knit stitched on to a plain shirt. I am in love. I never would have thought of that. I love everything you've done, but that has to be my absolute favorite! Love it.

  90. I've been wanting a Silhouette for a long time! I want to do all sorts of paper crafts so I can cheaply decorate our new home. I love shadow boxes! Thanks for the chance!

  91. Absolutely love the cupcake box- I'm a sucker for dots. And the raffia wraped paper holder for the pretzel dessert is oh so cute! Love your site. It continually inspires me.

  92. Can I just BE you????

    Sara – amazing. I love the boys shirts. I love the family picture. You are one talented chica.

  93. Oh, I have been wanting one of these!!!! The first thing I would make is some vinyl for my laundry room. Then I would make some cards and then start scrapbooking on that PILE of photos I have been collecting for YEARS!!!

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  94. I want one of these SOOO badly!! I'd love to try the heat transfer for shirts for my kids. Then, I'd make some party stuff for my baby's upcoming 1st birthday!

  95. I would love to do heat transfer, and vinyl, and paper crafts, and… with this machine the possibilities are endless! What a great giveaway!

  96. I would love one of these crazy machines that turn people crafty in an instant! I need all the help I can get and this just may be my ticket!

  97. I love it! You have so inspired me out of my creative rut. Your enthusiasm is infectious. I see several projects I'd love to try (in between the cooking of course). What a fun giveaway.

    I'm rather new to this blogging world and I think it's so amazing you take the time to share all your wonderful ideas and stories. It's a joy to read. Thanks!

  98. I would LOVE the Silhouette! I am already imagining all the things I can do with vinyl! I'm not all that crafty, and words on the walls is an easy, classy way to dress up my home! Thanks for the give away!

  99. That thing is awesome! So many possibilities. I think the paper cutting stuff looks neat to me, but I'd like to try everything it does. And it's so cool that you can stick a pen in it to draw designs.

  100. So creative! And I love how little time it took you to make the flowers. I have so many ideas running through my head…I just need to win!

  101. I would love to have one of those machines, mostly for the vinyl and heat transfer projects that are stuck in my head waiting to be created. Thanks for sharing all your idea's hope I can win one someday!

  102. I'm so glad I can enter to win! I would love to do the heat transfer for all sorts of fun things! Love your website- I've referred tons of friends and family to it!

  103. I'd love to have the Silhouette to use for card making and for the vinyl angle. What a great, versatile piece of craft equipment to have in your home! Love that glass block craft, too!

  104. This would be so perfect for all those Christmas Crafts, and I wouldn't have to borrow my friends first generation Cricuit, this is way better!!!

  105. Ohh I want one!!! So fun 🙂 You guys are my favorite by the way, I was just browsing a few weeks ago and found your site and I LOVE all the deliciousness!

  106. I was worried that I was out of the running for this wonderful machine.
    I almost cried!

    The first thing I would make is VINYL!!!! my house would be covered in it!

  107. WOW this machine must be popular if the original post got full!

    I find it fascinating that the machine can do tattoo's – my kids love those and to be able to make them anytime would be AWESOME!! plus all the other fun things like vinyl lettering on the walls too.

  108. I would love to have one of these machines it can do so manythings and I can thinks of so manything to do with it, but one of my favorite right now is to make vinyl for wall.. would love to win it.

    thank you.

  109. I love that there are no cartridges to buy. You can just by what you need, no more expensive cartridges for only a couple of designs. What a great machine!

  110. I'm in love with this machine. My two favorite things to do are baking and paper crafting, I'd love to make some cupcake wrappers, toppers, boxes, labels, etc… I hope I win my own Silhouette!

  111. I want this machine so bad! There are so many projects that I have in the works that this would help out with. i.e. card making, scrapbooking, vinyl I have a card give away coming up, so this would really help out with this.

  112. OK. I am not crafty…but I totally NEED one of these machines. There are at least 38 projects that I could use it for in the next 5 minutes. But the glass block one is coming first.

  113. Ooo I would like it for the vynal. I have been wanting to put "may you build a ladder to the stars and climb on every rung" in my daughter room but I just don't trust our vynal place here (nor do I. Wanna pay their prices)

    Also ama fb fan- have been for a while.

  114. Love your projects… and super excited for a chance to get my hands on a silhouette… I love all the features… especially the vinyl option

  115. I would absolutely DIE if i won this! I badly want to etch glass..If I can do it to my mirrors…then that is first. Next would be some wall vinyls for my newborn's room and of course every little baby needs a custom shirt that says "I love my mama! She made me this onesie" lol

  116. the first thing I would do would make shirts and fake tattoos for my boys to wear to their uncles football games!!!

  117. I've seen this machine in action before but WOW! I didn't even think of all the other things I could use this for besides etched glass with etchall! There are SO many thins I want to do and hope by winning this machine will give me the chance to do them all … well, some of them.

  118. those are all cute projects! I love the cupcake wrappers. I keep stalking the Silhouettes on ebay and dreaming of projects at night lol!

    pjay3 (at) hotmail (dot) com 🙂

  119. I love your craft boxes and would love to make some. 🙂 I didn't know you could download the images, how cool is that! Thanks for the giveaway.

  120. I am entering to win the Silhouette- I love ALL of the things you can do with it! I can't decide if I'm more excited about the vinyl or the heat transfers — but cutting out magnet paper and making magnets sounds like lots of fun too!

  121. I love the idea of being able to make all of those cute boxes and the option to hook up to your computer is awesome! I'd love to have one of these machines!

  122. Oops, I think my first entry didn't post. So here goes again.

    Wow! I love that there are no cartridges to buy! The cupcake holders are so cute.

  123. I can't wait to "WIN" the Silhouette!!! I love everything about it, but I think I'd really like to try the "Vinyl" & the "Glass" first… 🙂 Thanks so much for this opportunity!!! God bless you – <3

  124. I would love to cut some vinyl letters to use for wall decor. There are just so many things to use a Silhouette for!

  125. what an AMAZING machine!!! i would finally be able to do so many of the fun crafts i have been wanting to try!

    everything you made was adorable!!

  126. …And the thing I love about the Silhouette is the ability to use the writing feature. I want to make background paper! I also love the rhinestone templates.

  127. The Silhoeutte machine is amazing! I would love to try many of the different options but I think I would use the paper crafts the most…cards, scrap booking and the little gift bags are adorable! I'm crossing my fingers…Thanks!


  128. Ok this may be a stupid question…..but how did you get the picture in the glass block. I know that they only have a little hole in the bottom to get lights in unless they have changed since I made one with lights in it. I LOVE the picture idea. It is a GREAT christmas gift.

    1. Angie I just gently rolled the edges of the photo to fit it through the opening and then it just opens right up when it’s inside. Not a stupid question!

  129. Im thinking of purchasing a Cricut machine and I was wondering if the Silhouette machine is a better purchase than the Cricut machine? Do you have any advise on what to buy?

  130. I am new to your site and think it is awesome. I am very old and have 12 Grand children plus raising two of them. Looking for ideas for gifts for them and you have some great ideas. Now I need way to make income due to disability. Thank you!

  131. How did you get the picture on the inside of the glass block and secure it nicely? I was wanting to make some of these for gifts. 🙂 If you are able to e-mail how you did it, that would be fabulous!! Thanks!

  132. how did you get the picture inside the glass block? and how did you keep it there?
    i have seen images of vinyl on the inside, but the holes r so small to put stuff in them!! help?!?!

  133. I love that last glass block craft! How did you get the picture inside the block and stuck to it? I’d like to make something similar. I know I have to roll it to get it in the block, but cant figure out how to get the picture affixed to the block once it’s in there. Could you give me some pointers?

  134. Hi Sara!

    I LOVE your ice block “Forever Family” frame… did you stick the pictures to the back of the cube, or is it freestanding inside the cube? I just played with these ice blocks this weekend, but I love the look of your large image on the inside! Thanks for any advice you can give! 🙂 jen
