I mixed all of my dry ingredients and put them in a clean spaghetti jar. Then I printed out the rest of the instructions and glued it to the jar with a picture of charlie brown. Then I put fabric over the lid and added a bow. I do warn you that this brownie recipe is VERY good and you won't be able to eat just one!

I have been looking for a cat scratcher for my cat, but the ones at the store were expensive and made out of cardboard. So I decided to look online on how to make one.
What you will need
Hot Glue Card Stock
My dad cut the cardboard 3 inches wide with his band saw (sorry if I seplt that wrong). This literally took 5 minutes. Then I coiled it into circles and put double sided carpet tape at the end of the cardboard and then taped it down with packing tape ( Look at Picture 3 and 4). Keep doing this until you reach your desired size.
I then hot glued card stock on the bottom and tape card stock to the sides and trimmed it up. Then I glued the non slip shelf lining on the bottom so it won't slide around. My cat has the tendency to leap on things and knocks them over. Finally I hot glued the ribbon on the bottom.

1 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1cup of brown sugar
1 ¼ cups molasses
2 eggs, beaten
In the microwave melt margin when the margin is melted add sugar, molasses and beaten eggs. Mix well and add the spices and flour. Mix well. Cover and refrigerate until firm enough to handle.
When dough is easy to handle, roll the dough out to a 1/8” thickness and cut out desired shapes.
Charlie Brown Christmas
Arthur's Perfect Christmas
I took a shirt box I got from the dollar tree and lined it with wax paper and filled it with sugar cookies, fudge, and peppermint ice. Then I typed up some recipes and made gift tags and recipe cards out of stock paper.

One of the toys that are really popular today is sewing cards. Melissa and Dough have supper cute sewing cards, but unless you find them on sale they are a bit pricey. This year I am trying to make gifts that are cute and inexpensive to make. So I am going to show you how to make a sewing card.
Cardboard covered in scrapbook paper
Ribbon or Yarn
Trace whatever you want on the card. I used a triangle and a square, but a star or other shapes would be really cute. Then punch holes to thread the ribbon through and then your done.

My brother loves energy drinks. Although I hate energy drinks I do think that the can does look cool. So for today's gift idea I am going to make a bank.
First you need to clean out a can and let it dry.
Then cut a hole in it to put the coins through. Screw on the cap and your done.
Another cute idea is to use a jar and put a few coins in it. While I hate energy drinks I enjoy cold coffee drinks.

So you will need a bath towel, thread, Cotton, sisors and a Needel.
Bread (I used day old bread, one loaf for only 90 cents)
Green Beans (mine came from our garden)
2 cans of tomato based spaghetti sauce
1 can of Alfredo sauce
First cook the pasta as directed on the box. Then while the pasta is cooking crumble up the Italian Sausage.
Cook beans the way you like and season with basil.
Next drain the pasta and divide the pasta and the Sausage in half. Add half of the noodles and sausage in the frying where you cooked the Sausage and then add the remaining pasta and Sausage to the pan where you cooked the pasta.
Add 2 cans of tomato based spaghetti sauce to one pan and then add 1 can of Alfredo sauce to the other pan and heat until hot.
Next toast your bread. You could butter it and add garlic salt on it or make herb butter using an Italian season mix (Or make your own Italian seasoning by mixing butter with basil, oregano, parsley, and garlic salt).
Now the supper is done! Enjoy
