white plates just won't do.

A repost from the archives... but a good one if you are gifting cookies to the neighbors this year!

Don't forget to enter the Hidden In My Heart: Scripture Lullabies Giveaway!  Winner will be announced on Friday's blog post!


I made some cookies tonight.  Was craving a mix of peanut butter and chocolate, so I made buckeyes!  It was my first time trying them and they were SO EASY.  and delicious.

I'm visiting a friend tomorrow and thought I'd take some Buckeyes over for their family.  Except for one problem.  I only had small, white, boring paper plates.  That just wouldn't do.

So, I grabbed a strip of red fabric.

Placed it in my sewing machine.  Did a backstitch at the top  and used my largest stitch possible the rest of the way down the middle.

After pulling one of the pieces of thread from my stitch, I ruffled the piece up and sewed it around my paper plate.

Yes, you can use your sewing machine to sew on paper!  That opens up a whole new crafting arena, huh?!

Placed a few buckeyes in the middle.  Cut up an old Christmas card sent to us last year (you do save the cards you get from previous years to use as gift tags, etc... right?!).  And wrote a short little note.


These need to be refrigerated until you're ready to serve them, but mine fridge was full.  No worries.  It's cold enough on our enclosed back porch to set them out there as a make-shift fridge!

Sweet.  In more than one way!
