I was up early as usual yesterday morning but not quite as early as I am when the alarm wakes me up. I grabbed some coffee and headed for the computer. First it was emails and blog reading. Second on the list was to finish the two projects for the birthday gift I needed to deliver.
First I made her a cake. Not your typical cake though. This one was made with paper and Hershey nuggets. Let me just say, cute idea but pain in the butt. I can't find the exact tutorial I used but THIS ONE is basically the same.
Dark and gloomy around here so the pictures aren't the best. The tutorial I followed had 3 Hershey nugget layers but after doing 2 I opted for my third layer to be a battery operated tealight candle.
My second gift was a teabag holder. The tutorial I followed for this project is HERE. I filled it with 6 Earl Grey teabags since that is her favorite tea
I wasn't completely satisfied with the way the teabag holder came out so I spent the rest of the morning working on a new design and putting parts of it into Cricut design space so that I can cut them all out with my machine. Come back tomorrow to see that one.
