Weave Basket

Can you guess that I made this basket with paper towel rolls. When I first saw this project online, I just wanted to make one and have been collecting the paper towel rolls enough to make this cute little basket.

Mini Pallet Coaster

Few days back, I bought a bag of popsicle sticks for a project my son was working on. We had plenty remaining after his work was done. Then came the idea of making something with the sticks. These coasters were the first thing I made. So inexpensive and looks great...:)

Paper Flower Crown

If you have been following my projects, you might have figured how much I love working with paper. Making paper flowers is one of my favorite things to do.
The other day, I had a bunch of paper flowers and was wondering how I could use these and thought of making flower crowns for my kids.

Paper Cut CandleHolders

What a great way to decorate the plain candle holders. Wrap the plain candle holder with some design paper or in my case, I made some simple cut designs on the paper and wrapped it around.

Beach Inspired Jute Lantern

Yesterday, I saw some beachy nautical lanterns in the store and thought of making my own version of it. It turned out great and that too, in a fraction of the price that it was selling for..:)  And I'll show you how easy it was to make.

I already had everything I needed. I used an empty pasta sauce bottle, which I cleaned and washed removing the labels and making it sparkling clean and I always have jute rope in my craft stash..:)

Strawberry Scones

I love scones, but didn't know how to make it or never even thought that it will be so easy to make. When I had a big bunch of strawberries from our recent trip to Costco and we still had a lot left even after just eating like that, I thought of making something with it. Then while looking through recipes, came across this Alton Brown's recipe for scones which I thought will be good to add the strawberries to.

Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries

An easy and quick dessert, which everybody loves. I made these for a large crowd and it was gone in minutes..) These will be great as July 4th dessert going with the red-white and blue theme.

Cauliflower cutlets

This is going to become one of my goto appetizer ideas. Everyone enjoyed it when I made it last weekend. I have been seeing lot of dishes these days with shredded cauliflower. Few days back, I even tried cauliflower rice and it was awesome. I will post the recipe for that one soon.
