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)

Directions:

  1. Place ½ cup of chopped nuts in bottom of tin foil lined cookie sheet. Cook ¾ cup of brown sugar (packed) and ½ cup butter to 270 degrees about 7 minutes, stirring constantly. Pour over nuts and smooth out.
  2. Sprinkle over toffee 6 oz of chocolate chips (or not).
  3. Cover at once with tin foil and wait for 2 minutes or until chips are soft. Then spread the chocolate out with a spatula.
  4. Let Cool. Break into pieces (turn over on wax paper and strike with a heavy spoon or break with hands)

Keep refrigerated. (May freeze)

Makes - 1 lb. candy


KAM Snap Upcycled Jean Christmas Ornaments by ILikeBigButtons.com December 05 2018

Today I decided a need a few Upcycled Jean Christmas Trees. As I have mentioned in the past, finding jeans destine for the scrap pile is no problem with a house full of rambunctious kiddos. These cute trees also remind me of some that my parents had when we were growing up.

Supplies:

  • A set of holey Jeans
  • Star KAM Snaps
  • KAM Snap Pliers and Awl
  • Fabric of your choice (I picked Christmasy colored cotton fabric)
  • Ribbon
  • Quilt Batting or Pillow Stuffing
  • Fabric Adhesive
  • Standard Sewing Machine
  • Scissors

1.  Make a simple Christmas Tree template and trace on your jean fabric with a permanent marker.

2.  Make pairs of each tree so that you have a front and back for each tree. You could also use felt or fabric on the back to extend the impact of your jean fabric.

3.  Cut the Christmas Tree template down. I took about a 1/2" on each side/angle. Make a Fabric Christmas Tree silhouette for each Jean Christmas Tree.

4.  Use a Fabric Adhesive to adhere the Christmas Tree silhouettes to the fronts sides of the Jean Christmas Trees.

5.  Use a decorative stitch to outline the Upcycled Jean Christmas Trees on two sides. Then fill with quilt batting or pillow filling.

6.  Finish stitching along the bottom swoop of the Christmas Tree. Add a loop of decorative ribbon and a Star KAM Plastic Snap to the top of the Christmas Tree.

Additional Crafty Ideas:

  • You could add multiple cuts along the edges of the trees to add more character.
  • Or you could fray the edges of the trees.
  • You could give the trees finished edges, but that wasn't the look I was personally going for.
  • You could add KAM Snaps; both Star, Heart, and Round shaped into the body of the tree to represent ornaments or twinkling lights.

7.  Tada! I think they turned out great and add a great pop of color to our Christmas Tree.


Christmas In July @ I Like Big Buttons! July 22 2018

It feels like Christmas in July in our I Like Big Buttons! household.

We have been busy helping our small community church prepare goodies for the Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes that our church sends out each year. It is a great way to demonstrate to and with my children what it means to love and reach the unreached.

Given how excited my children, who have much in comparison, are about the little packages we put together, I can only imagine the wonder each girl and boy has when they open the special boxes we have packed for them.

This year we were tasked with making little bead & necklace kits which feels right up our alley. 

I think they turned out pretty nice and with my many helpers, the task wasn't overwhelming. So far, we have put together 225 bead necklace kits. I am sure some more beads will make their way to us. 

Next, we were put in charge of cutting in half all the construction paper so that it fits neatly in the shoeboxes. I may have volunteered for this task because I have the largest paper cutter around. :P

Our task for the upcoming week is sewing kits. I bought some simple hotel sewing kits off of Amazon that we are going to jazz up with some extra goodies.

Like an overabundance of "free" fabric, Grandma dropped on my doorstep when she was cleaning her home.  I think for my sanity and to bless someone else, it should be donated to Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes. Seems like a win, win! :)

We are also adding extra thread, bobby pins, buttons, floss, ribbon left over from our bead necklaces, and scissors.

I hope you enjoyed a glimpse into Christmas in July at I Like Big Buttons! I am sure there will be more Operation Christmas Child projects to come as November approaches. My kiddos and I are on our OCC director's short list. She knows we are cheerful, ready, and willing to make her crazy ideas a reality. :)

Last year, our tiny community church made almost 800 boxes which amazes me. God is Good!!! If you haven't checked out Operation Christmas Child and Samaritan's Purse, you should. It is an outstanding program run by Franklin Graham.
