I'm just a girl with a labelmaker

Tag Archives: homemade

When I found this tutorial I was so glad to have a pretty, homemade version of the standard boring white jewelry gift box. I happen to have a few extra pieces of scrapbook paper layin’ around ๐Ÿ˜‰ and thought these would not only be great for jewelry but also perfect for dividers in drawers! The original idea came from A Little Hut…a great little blog with all kinds of paper crafts! Patricia has an easy to follow eHow video showing how to make these little boxes and I will post step by step photos below as well…


Square paper (cardstock is best, I’m using a 12″ square of scrapbook paper)

Scissors or Xacto knife and cutting mat (I’m using scissors because our cutting mat is M.I.A. – it must’ve run off with my glue gun)

Bone folder or something to crease the edges (I’m using the handle of my scissors)

Make sure to crease every fold very well…

You may have to be a little patient while the how to photos load….

Welcome to the first ‘Foodie Friday’ post! Around here Fridays are dedicated to all things food and food related ๐Ÿ™‚

This Friday’s post is for our canine friends…

Basic Homemade Dog Biscuits

2 eggs

1/4 cup milk

2 cups whole wheat flour

3 tablespoons wheat germย 

Preheat oven to 350. Blend eggs in mixing bowl.

Add wheat germ and milk

Stir until smooth. Add whole wheat flour and mix using your hands

Pat dough to 1/2″ thick and as wide as your bone shaped cookie cutter is long. If you don’t have a bone shaped cookie cutter (me) just try your best to cut bone shapes, or use a shot glass to cut out small circles. I recommend working fairly quickly when doing this, once the dough dries it is very crumbly and hard to work with/reshape.

Place dough 1 inch apart on an ungreased cookie sheet.

Bake for 20 minutes on one side, then turn over and bake another 20 minutes.

Remove from oven and let cool on wire rack.

Hope your doggies enjoy — I know mine sure did!
