- Use a silicone spatula for stirring the melts; do not use metal.
- Do not allow any water to come into contact with the candy; it will cause the candy to seize up.
- Do not overheat the melts; microwave no more than 30 seconds at a time and stir very well every time.
- Use a good quality candy melt.
- These instructions are for the use of chocolate easy-melts. Real chocolate requires tempering and is more involved.
Gently lift the rolled fondant and press it into the mold. Press your finger around the entire molding area. If the fondant tears, try rolling a thicker piece or pressing more gently.
Okay! Are you ready to make some fun spring bunny stuff? I drew up a cute little bunny silhouette in Photoshop. You can get the file by clicking here. Today, I’m going to show you a quick way to dress up any plain or dress and turn it into a bunny shirt for your cutie. Let’s get started.
Print the bunny template (download it here). Trace template onto an iron-on fusible web product. I like to use Steam a Seam.
Peel off one side of fusible web paper and place on the wrong side of fabric. Remember to place the fusible web so that the mirror image of the design is on the back of the fabric. That way, your image is the correct orientation when you flip it over to the right side of the fabric.
Cut fabric and web.
I’ve had a few thrift store frames sitting around for awhile and thought I’d see what I could make of them to add to Addie’s bedroom decor. It felt so good to just craft aimlessly and I love how this little frame turned out. Easy art. Cheap art!
The steps are simple. I used a thrift store wooden frame that I picked up for $1.99. I roughed up the edges with some sandpaper and slapped on two coats of white paint. After the frame dried, I roughed up the edges with sandpaper again, paying special attention to the scrolly areas. LOVE the chippy finished look.
To finish the frame, I used spray adhesive to attach a vintage piece of sheet music to the cardboard insert and popped it in the frame. Then, I rolled up a few fabric flowers (do we need a tutorial on these or has everyone seen them a million times over?) and gathered some ribbon, tulle, and faux pearls. I cut a large circle of felt and moved around my embellishments until I loved the ensemble. I hot glued everything down onto the felt and connected it to the corner of the frame. Done!
