I have a fun project today, sharing how I made a shirt style gift card holder. This is perfect for those men in your lives, that you want to give a gift card to for any occasion or celebration. You could make this in any colour combination and it would look just as great. I have instructions over on the Papermilldirect blog here. So head on over and check it out!!
Inside there is a panel to hold the gift card, and to include your message too!
I am stopping by quickly to share a cute project I have up over on the Papermilldirect blog. It is a fun project for teachers or just for a fun treat idea. Head on over to the Papermilldirect blog to see a tutorial on how I made it.
Just stopping by to share this make I have over on the Papermilldirect blog, showing a fun idea for a save the date wedding card…Head on over to get more details and info, hope you like it!
I hope you are enjoying your weekend. I just want to share this card I had fun playing with watercolours on. I have a tutorial on it over on the Papermilldirect blog that you can see here.
My brother in law Rodney got married at the weekend to his wonderful new wife, Karen. Both are huge Dr. Who fans – the cake toppers were Daleks! So I just had to make them a non traditional wedding card that was perfect for them! I have details on how I made this card and all supplies used over on the Papermildirect blog.
It opens like a traditional card and has a more traditional sentiment inside, but is all TARDIS on the outside!
I am happy to say they loved it. Congratulations again to the happy couple!
I am back with another Live Lagom post, this one with a real difference! It is all about fermenting. We got invited into the Ikea Dublin HQ to learn all about fermenting with Dearbhla Reynolds of The Cultured Club.
We learned so much about fermenting, the techniques behind it, the health benefits and much more. We started off with a lovely table set up ready for us to make some food of our own….those knives were sharp, there were a lot of plasters being handed around!
We got to try some of Dearbhla’s fermented lemonade, and fermented salsa – both of which were amazing. The salsa can keep for up to 6 months, if you can manage to not eat it for that long that is. It is such a brilliant way of preserving food!
We then got down to making our own salsa, after getting a lesson in how to do it. Lots of peppers, onion, tomatoes and garlic were chopped (a triple portion of garlic in my case, I do love my garlic!), and seasoned with herbs and spices before adding the brine mix that is the secret to success.
So much salsa – we did great work, and the room smelled divine!
This is our final result. We have to wait 5 days before it is fermented and ready to go. Then we have a stash of salsa that will keep for 6 whole months, yum! Next on my list to make is kimchi, I love that stuff, and cant believe how easy it is to make.
Thanks to Dearbhla and Sarah in Ikea for having us in and for such a great workshop!
Happy Bank Holiday Monday if you have one where you are! I am sharing this fun card over on the Papermilldirect blog and how I made it. Head on over and check it out!
