Replace Messages in Fortune Cookies

Intimate Weddings shows how easy it is to replace the message in store bought fortune cookies. The only tools needed are damp paper towels, microwave, and new custom made paper strips.

Folded money

I spent the day figuring out what kinds of things I could fold out of money. I used the Origami Resource Center to find diagrams for folding money. Some of them were complete disasters, but I had a few winners. I took photos of the winners (and one looser). They are going to be used when we give the gift of cash for Christmas.

Tweaking my page

After a long day at work, I came home and tweaked my page a bit. Played with colors, fonts etc. I'm still not quite happy with it, but it's close. I suppose I could have just chosen a pre-made template and left it, but then what is the fun of that? I want to put my own photo as a background but will have to fiddle with that another day. It appears my file sizes are too big. Oh well, I guess I need to play more with my photo imaging program to figure out the optimal size. I changed the file size to the right size and then the picture was too small. Get the pixels right size then the file is still too big. I'll figure it out eventually. Meanwhile I used one of the backgrounds that came with the templates and will be happy with it for a while.

Here I am

So, I decided to start a blog. I have been following other crafty folks and now I decided to join the fray. We will see how this goes. It will be a learning experience as I go along so I'm sure these first posts will be not a lot of fun. Oh well, there is nobody following me now anyway, so I guess today I'm just talking to myself. Darned work....time to leave already and I was just getting started. Oh well. Will have time to play around tomorrow.
