day 62: baking away/ chocolate-dipped minnie mouse Oreo pops!

Standard

MY “PINTERESTING” TAKE:

 

“PINSPIRATION”, FROM PINTEREST:

Ingredients (my changes in red):
Wilton Candy Melts (Midnight Black) or chocolate (since it was not Halloween time, but Valentine’s season, we could only find chocolate, even after 5 stores, oh well, they still tasted great!)
Double Stuff Oreos (I need to buy some stock in that company)
Bite Size Oreos
Popsicle Sticks
red ribbon (we used black and pink ribbon with polka dots and zebra stripes of course!)

Directions:

Slide the popsicle sticks into your Double Stuff Oreos very gently by holding the cookie in one hand and sliding the stick with the other. Then take one bite size Oreo cookie and separate it into two halves. Scrape out the frosting with the edge of a knife. Slide the smaller cookies into the top of the Oreo to make her ears. Lay them out onto some wax paper.

Melt your candy melts in the microwave in 20 second intervals until it is melted to a smooth and creamy consistency. Now “dip” the Oreos into the candy. Now I don’t actually dip them but rather take a spoon and smooth it onto the front of the Oreos. You need to be very careful when doing this as the ears can come off very easily. Just do the front and then set it onto the wax paper. Do this for all of your Oreos and then pop them into the freezer. After 20 minutes you can take them out and then cover the back side of the Oreos with the candy. Make sure to cover the ears and the bottom of the stick well so that they do not fall apart. Once they have been popped in the freezer again, they will be really sturdy and you should not have a problem with them falling apart…even if you accidently drop the tray onto the countertop! Not that I may have done that…just saying!

Then take some ribbon and tie it into a bow around the base of the Minnie Mouse head to add a pop of color and detail. Serve them to your party guests or send them home with this fun and tasty party favor! Who wouldn’t love a Minnie Mouse Oreo Pop?

Until ipinterest tomorrow!

day 48: crafty kiddos/ minnie mouse birthday pin wheel garland/banner!

Standard

MY TAKE:

FROM PINTEREST:

1. Cut two strips of paper in equal size. 2. Accordion fold both. 3. Place both pieces together on the table, face up. Push them in, and turn them on their side to staple them in the middle. 4. Fan them back out, and secure their sides by taping them. Double sided tape works like a gem, and scrap book paper is super fun, as are music sheets, and pictures decorated by your little ones.

• Project: day 48: crafty kiddos/ minnie mouse pin wheel birthday garland/banner!
Difficulty rating (1=easiest, 5= way too hard!): 2
• Would I do it again? yes, it was pretty easy, very cute, and could easily be done for any holiday. There are so many great cardstocks out there that have great themes to theme: Halloween, Christmas, birthdays, you name it!
• What I would do differently: my DCWV paper was almost out, so I only could do one pink pin wheel! I will either take it out for Morgan’s birthday, or go buy some more pink to add into her Minnie Mouse theme!
• Items used: DCWV Glitter Cardstock pack (Michael’s), twine (Hobby Lobby), scissors, tape, stapler, and clothespins

until ipinterest tomorrow!

Project: day 45: get crafty/ diy fabric tutu for minnie mouse birthday party!
• Difficulty rating (1=easiest, 5= way too hard!): 2 (but really a 3 for me, but since I had my best friend Jackie who is oh so good at crafts with me, she gave me a lot of help!).
• Would I do it again? yes, it turned out so cute! Can’t wait for Morgan’s birthday so she can wear it!
• What I would do differently: it really turned out great, but we were possibly going to add tule to it as well for an extra touch of girliness! When we were at Michael’s today, we thought we purchased some elastic to tie all of the fabric to, but it wasn’t in our bag when we got home! So, we tied it all to some adorable ribbon left over from my Minnie Mouse centerpieces, and we’re hoping that will work, if not I will be calling my mom for some last-minute help in the sewing department!
• Items used: Michael’s fabric squares in zebra prints, polka dots, oh my!, scissors, and left over Hobby Lobby polka-dot ribbon!
until ipinterest tomorrow!
