Waxed leaves... Make sure your leaves are completely dry. Melt some beeswax in a double-boiler. You can use new wax or old candle stubs (optional - add a few drops of cinnamon oil).  When the wax is thoroughly melted, take the leaves by the stem and immerse them, one at a time, in the wax. Hold them over the pot to drip a bit, then lay them on waxed paper to dry. by Sadie Williams

These are so easy and quick, I made them last year too... simply poke mini marshmallows on either end of a lollipop stick. Over a double boiler or in a microwave, melt butterscotch chips until smooth (or you can use peanut-butter flavoured Wilton candy melts). Gently dip each end of the "swab" in the melted candy and lay to set on waxed paper. Do not refrigerate. by sammsfamily

Happy Birthday to My Sister!  This is your Birthday and to show I care, I wanted to get you something to wear…I wasn’t sure of your size, and money is tight, and buying the wrong thing just wouldn’t be right…  So, I’m giving you something I know you can use; It’s almost as useful as a new pair of shoes. Now every time you sit to pee, I know that you will be thinking of me! So, use this gift to dry your tush, Then make a wish before you flush.  bahahaha by longlong

THIS REALLY WORKS AND LAUNDRY IS SUPER SOFT!!!   Soak a hand towel in fabric softener. Squeeze out any remaining drops from the towel.    Hang it over a chair (or outside on a clothes line) to dry. My house smelled super clean for the three days while this towel was drying completely. Yes, it took three days!    You must make sure it dries completely!    After the towel dries you just throw it in your dryer along with clothes and use it as a dryer sheet for 40-50 loads before soaking again. by christian

Store them in an airtight container. Mine in nothing fancy. My kids recycled an empty oatmeal can to use for ours. It works lovely. But you can use a large jar, bowl, an old container from some commercial made dishwasher cubes or packets. Whatever works as long as they stay dry. Hope you enjoyed! by cristina

homemade watercolor paints, they're solid
Combine 3 tablespoons each of the baking soda, cornstarch and vinegar and add 1 1/2 teaspoons of the corn syrup/sugar substitute. Allow the fizzing to subside and mix completely. Pour the mixture into whatever you'd like to use to hold your paints. I bought a $2 paint tray at Michaels, but you can also use a plastic egg carton. Add the food coloring to create your desired palette and leave out to harden for three hours. Make sure you add the food coloring relatively quickly; the mixture actually starts to solidify almost right away. by helene

To make the fish you just need a little puff of air in small water balloons. Make the knot and voila! Fish! Use your favorite waterproof adhesive (I used superglue because I wasn't sure about hot glue in water) to attach some small googly eyes. Squeeze the fish through the opening, add some water (color with food coloring first), use some adhesive on the top and you have an adorable, portable aquarium! by iris-flower

Body Frosting Whipped Shea Butter  1/4 c. shea butter  2 Tbsp carrier oil (I used sweet almond and avocado)  1 tsp vitamin E oil (optional)  25 drops essential oil (optional)  On a double boiler (I just used a Pyrex bowl placed in a bowl of really hot water), melt the shea butter together with the carrier oils, stirring well. Once the shea butter is completely melted (remember – do NOT heat shea butter on high heat, or it becomes gritty), place the bowl containing the butter/oils into an ice water bath and cool slightly. Stir in your vitamin E and essential oils (if you’re using them). With a hand mixer, begin whipping the melted shea and oils together. It may take 5-10 minutes before you start seeing a whipped consistency, but it will happen.  Once you have a consistency you like, transfer to a lidded container. Should keep 6 months (especially if you use the vitamin E to help preserve). by sandra1969
