Christmas Gift Idea #3: Cover Button Christmas Card @ ILikeBigButtons.com December 13 2021

*Just a reminder our Christmas Crafts Giveaway Week is coming to an end soon! Make sure you have entered to win:

GRAND PRIZE: KAM Professional Snap Press: Enter to Win

Final Daily Prize: 200 sets Long Prong Starter Kit with Pliers: Enter to Win

🎄 🎁 🎄  🎁🎄 🎁 🎄 🎁 🎄 🎁 🎄 🎁 🎄  🎁🎄 🎁 🎄 🎁 🎄

You could make the Cover Buttons into fabric cover button earrings with our Earring Supplies and it could double as a gift and Christmas Card.

Supplies:

Instructions:

1.  Cut your fabric scrap. You will want a circle that is about twice the diameter of your button blank or use one of our handy Plastic Cover Button Templates.

2.  Put your fabric piece in the larger assembly tool piece (RIGHT SIDE DOWN). When you look into the tool you want to see the back of the fabric.

3.  Place the button front (the domed piece) on top of the fabric. Leave the fabric edges hanging out.

4.  Press the cover button edges down into the tool.

5.  Place the back cover button piece on top of your fabric and button front. If the cover button will be subject to repeated tugging from the back, you may want to add a little e6000 adhesive before attaching the back.

6.  Take the smaller piece of the assembly tool and with the open side down place it on the button back.

7.  Press down. You may hear a pop when the last bit of the button back slips into place. If you take the tool out and the button is not completely secured, just put it back in and press down again.

8.  When you take the small assembly tool piece off, the fabric edges will be secured underneath the button back.

9.  Remove the button from the larger assembly tool piece.

10.  Tada!  First step complete.

11.  Using a ruler, I made 8 straight lines of varying lengths.  Then I drew a bow on top of each and a small ornament top.

12.  Then in your best print write Merry Christmas.  How else doesn't like their own handwriting :P ?  I need to practice my pretty cursive more often.

13.  I think it turned out lovely.  You could also make the Cover Buttons  into fabric cover button earrings with our Earring Supplies: Earring Posts and it could double as a gift and Christmas Card.

Christmas Crafting 2 In My Kitchen @ ILikeBigButtons.com December 20 2018

 

#3 Foolproof Fudge

Super quick and tastes amazing with almost no effort - my two favorite baking requirements! 😀

I make multiple batches of this recipe. This year I made Mint Chocolate Fudge and Milk Chocolate Fudge.

 
#4 - Caramel Corn
 
CLASSIC CARAMEL CORN
 
INGREDIENTS:
• 2/3 cup of Popcorn popped and de-seeded (will make 24 cups)
• 9 Tablespoons of Corn Syrup
• 18 Tablespoons of Butter
• 2 ¼ cups of packed Brown Sugar
 
Directions for Caramel Sauce:
 
1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
2. Put in a saucepan, stir together and bring to a boil.
3. Let boil for 5 minutes, keep an eye on it and continue to stir it.
4. When 5 minutes is up, pull it off the stove and add vanilla and baking soda and stir (it will double in size).
Add:
• ¾ teaspoons of Vanilla
• ¾ teaspoons of Baking Soda
 
Directions for Caramel Corn:
 
1. Put popcorn in a turkey broiler pan, pour caramel mixture over and stir.
2. Place in oven for 10 minutes, at 10-minute mark stir and put back in the oven for 5 minutes.
3. At 5 minute mark, pull out and stir**.
4. **If you want crisper Caramel Corn (I like it crunchier), return to oven for an additional 3-5 minutes, pull and stir one last time.
5. Then spread caramel corn on tin foil in a single layer and let cool.
6. When cooled, break it up and eat.
 

Christmas Crafting In My Kitchen @ ILikeBigButtons.com December 18 2018

This week I am spending time crafting in my kitchen. 😊 One of my kiddos favorite tradition is a few days before Christmas we visit all our neighbors with treats and wish them "Happy Jesus' Birthday!"

We spend upwards of 20-30 minutes at each house. 😂 Our cookie run often takes a few evenings to complete. Not the swiftest, but a wonderful time where we get to really talk with our neighbors and enjoy them in more than passing.

This year I thought I would share my favorite easy, but tasty Christmas treats.

#1 Peanut Butter Fudge

See Recipe here: https://pinterest.com/pin/201184308339934112/

 

 
#2 English Toffee
 
This is one of my Grandma's recipes and a favorite of my husband's. I have to admit I am quite fond of it too.
 
ENGLISH TOFFEE CANDY
 
Ingredients:
  • ½ cup chopped nuts (pecan or walnuts)
  • ¾ cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup butter
  • 6oz chocolate chips (semi or milk chocolate)
