|fabric scraps for the final touch|
i agreed to help a friend put together some of my homemade gifts for her company white elephant exchange. it tickled me pink to put something together so fantastic from items around the house: fabric scraps from my napkin project, paper left over from last years christmas gifts.
to pull it all together i broke things down into themes, added simple suggestions for each item and typed them up:
SAGE PEAR BUTTER: PAIR WITH BLUE CHEESE OR CRUSTY HEARTY BREAD
BLUEBERRY BUTTER: PERFECT FOR BREAKFAST ON BISCUITS OR TOAST
LAVENDER SUGAR: LAVENDER LEMONADE, USE IN MUFFIN RECIPES
CURRIED ZEBRA RELISH: DELICIOUS WITH GRILLED CHEESE, SAUSAGE
PLUM CHUTNEY: CONDIMENT FOR ROASTED MEATS, TRIPLE CREAM CHEESES
FRESH CURRY SPICE: ADD TO A STIR-FRYS, LENTILS AND SOUPS
STRONGit was a fun project for the weekend and i can't wait to hear how it was all received.
