Corrections to the Fudge recipe and the angel free project.

There were some mistakes made in the recipe for the fudge but I have now corrected it. I have also added a little more detail in the information for the free angel project.
Thats sometimes how it goes when one gets in to big of a hurry! Shame on me...
Today I finished up some more little Christmas ornaments and there will be a set of 3 in my store for sale with instructions to make your own!
I am working on a new fabric bowl that will have some cute farm animals added to the fabric bowl! These little farm animals are just round as round...
My sale in the store ends tomorrow! It is the last day to get 20% off on all my handcrafted items. So just stop by for a peek.

Paper and Foam Angel Free Craft Project

This is a simple project...
What you will need:

Pink craft foam
light weight card board, one small board will do.
wiggle eyes

wire ribbon
cotton floss the color can be your choice
crafting paper, scrape bo
ok paper
stain ribbon
crafting wire
candy cane, or some little thing to put in the angels hand

hot glue gun
hole punch
First cut out a small shape for the angels body on the cardboard like the picture below..

Next trace this design onto the paper you have chosen and also cut out one wing from the cardboard. One wing will be stiffer than the other when you glue the paper onto the cardboard.

Now cut the arms, legs and head from craft foam... you can do this either freehand or design how you want the hands legs to look on a scrape of paper.

Glue the body to the cardboard, glue eyes, arms legs hair, to make the hair tie serveral strands together and trim the ends. Use a hot glue gun to glue.

So that it now looks like this BE SURE to glue the wings, legs behind the angel. Cut a small piece of paper to cover part of the arm and make it look like part of the dress.
Punch 2 holes....
With your hole punch in the back wi
ng and at the back of the dress like this..

Now you are almost finished, just use some Christ
mas wire ribbon and stain ribbon and tie bows around the wire with the wire ribbon, and hot glue the stain bow under the chin of the angel so it looks like this when you are all finished.

It will make a cute addition to any Christmas tree and I am planing on having some sets of these in my store.

Christmas Sugar Rush White Fudge

Now things get busy...
and I have come up with a yummy sugar rush fudge for those days you might just find yourself drained.
In a sauce pan on medium/low heat,(correction) 1/2 cup not 3/4 cup melt butter or margin and 2 1/2 cups of sugar, mix until butter and sugar are melted add one
large jar of Jet Puff Marshmallow creme, the 13 .oz jar. Now add one small bag of white chocolate chips, 2 cups of whole walnuts, 2 cups of coconut, mix again, until all is well blended, pour and spread in a 9x14 greased baking dish. Let cool and slice into small squares.
This recipe makes a whole lot of fudge, to keep or give to friends and family.
