Time Saver

I love when I find things that make my life easier. LOVE LOVE LOVE

I was originally going to make little monsters on cards..(loving little monsters ….little monsters and eyeballs) which would have entailed pulling out all my scrapbook stuff…..and figuring out how many eyeballs I wanted one monster to have….cutting it all out…gluing it all on ….

you can go to the scrapbook store.
and buy this for ONE DOLLAR.
 and take scissors
cut apart…
hole punch.
add ribbon
and attach.
Yup….much easier.
okay…so I feel a little guilty about just HOW easy it was…
so I will complicate it some more
took a bag from the dollar store
stuck some candy corn in the fingers.
added the best caramel corn popcorn (non-sticky kind)*
added a ribbon
and a tag from up above.
*non-sticky caramel corn
(it’s baked!….and awesome)
2 cubes (sticks) butter (one cup)
2 cups brown sugar (so healthy…or not)
1/2 cup karo syrup
Heat on the stove in saucepan until boiling…boil for 5 minutes.
Take off stove and add
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp vanilla
stir until all mixed.
pour over bowl of popcorn (about two bags)
stir until popcorn is well coated.
Spread out over cookie sheet.
cook at 250 degrees for 15 mins
take out and stir
back in 15 min
take out and stir
back in 15 min
take out and stir
back in 15 min
take out and stir and pour into bowl
let cool
oh, don’t eat it all…fill up your gloves first!!!!
(we are huge popcorn people…so we actually use the westbend popcorn popper….
and if westbend is reading..we love it….and ours is REALLY old…and could use a replacement.
just saying….
