Waffles made from canned Cinnamon Rolls

These were a huge hit!!!!  

Put out wax paper and use a rolling pin and roll out pretty flat.

Melt Butter and brush over the Waffle Iron you must do this step or it will stick and that is not fun to pull off .

I put a little butter and the frosting provided and OMG they turned out delicious!!! Simple and Easy and the family very much enjoyed them. Even if you are not that great in the kitchen these taste awesome!!!!

A book made into a purse DIY

 This is what the finished book purse looks like. I picked out books that were at salvation army that were colors that I liked so the book cost be about 75 cents.  

                              This is what it looks like when laying down just like a book!!!!

First thing I did was cut out the pages of the book with a razor cutter. 
 The ribbon we had laying around the house. and the button for the latch on top was just something I had aroud the house. The handle I got at Joannes with a 40% off coupon so that was about 3 bucks. You also need white muslin and some card board (which I forgot to take pics of cutting out). I will add that when I do You set the book at its side at a 45 degree angle and that is how you make the templet for the side for the purse  I did all of the lining with cardboard and muslin. The muslin I had from making a slip for my daughter.

                                  Presto bingo a new purse that cost me about 5 bucks to make.

Completed DIY Wedding Bouquet

Each petal is made then attached to each other. My litte girl is thrilled and I think it turned out amazing!
 Happily Ever After Enough Said
 They Key to her heart

I found this tutorial on if it wasn't for her I would have never been able to create this. I cut 3inch by 3 inch papers to make these flowers. I found a hot glue gun worked best when putting them together. I used card stock for some of the flowers but it was hard to fold. Scrapbook paper that is thinner I recomend. Have fun folding I folded and had one of my daughters help me fold as it does take 5 3x3 papers to make 1 flower.  

 She got her wedding shoes today they are a perfect match!!!
