Pinny Party #1

A few guidelines:
  • Our link parties are Saturday and Sunday only (it's a weekend thing).
  • Please make sure that there is paper in your project.
  • Please link directly to your entry, not just to your blog.
  • Please credit the rePin from PINTEREST and put a photo of it in your post.
  • Whenever possible, visit each other's blogs to comment.

My repin today comes from Wendy Price

I LOVE these straws and thought - hey...wonder if you can make those.
I couldn't find directions anywhere so time for an experiment.
While these work great for pixie sticks I wouldn't suggest sipping.
Not that they're toxic or anything.  Flour and water glue. 
I left one in water for 4 days and although the paper doesn't bleed
when you suck - it collapses.  Sucks.  Bet you could wrap it around a plastic straw
and it would work fine.  Haven't been there or done that yet.

So here's the scoop...

Whoops - after step 5 let it dry.  Could be 1 hour, could be overnight.  Depends on where you live.
Voila!  Edible pixie dust in a pixie stick.
The gourmet version is in Wendy's original pin.
Either way it's perfect for your little Elf on the Shelf!

Okay.
Your turn.
One random winner gets a $5 gift certificate.
For what?
More paper of course.
Elf images are HERE!
