DIY Tiny Can Cakes Tutorial from Lana Red here. Cute tutorial using cans to bake tiny cakes with jam. It looks like she fondant frosting (the type you roll out), but you could use any frosting and filling between the layers you want. *Tips: I have baked and decorated a lot of cakes so check a can cake frequently with a knife to make sure you don’t overcook it. Also you can use dental floss to slice layers of cake to frost.
DIY Mini Glitter Foam Super Bowl Fingers Tutorial from Studio DIY here. Posted at the request of a friend who is a sports’ fanatic and liked this DIY. *Link at Studio DIY for mini foam “we are #1” fingers. Yes, we’ve gone from Burberry and Prada knockoffs to glitter foam fingers.
DIY Resin Clay Coffee Break Ring Tutorial from Resin Crafts here. I have not tried this new resin clay but want to because you can embed things at angles, but more importantly it’s also waterproof and heat and chemical resistant. I’ve had problems with polymer clay jewelry warping in heat (think direct hot sunlight or in your car).
truebluemeandyou: DIY Mini Bow and Arrow. Posted December 2011 as a stocking stuffer.
DIY Mini Bow and Arrow Set. Love this photo. Popsicle stick, Q-tip, dental floss and a pen. Tutorial with lots of photos at The Brooding Hen here. *They have a good way of making this into a gift for little kids (big kids too?):
“ We put them in a special pouch with 6 arrows, and we use fine point pens to decorate the bow with the child’s name.”
“Take care, they can shoot a surprising 15-20 feet!”
Truebluemeandyou: Really cute. You can do this in any color, any finish, and flip the mini envelope over and use tiny stamps to stamp a name or word into the clay.
