TLC154 Sweet Centerpieces
Hello all!! I'm your guest hostess this week and I am excited to bring you this week's TLC!

We've all hosted a party or a shower {or two or ten!!} and being that we are all of creative nature we put our all into invitations, favors, etc. This week let's focus on the centerpieces for these parties. You may remember making these little 'fortune tellers' as a kid. Who knew if you flipped them over they could make some real cute candy dishes!?! There are endless possibilities for baby showers, kid's parties and just general cuteness to have around the house!

**Please put TLC154 in the keyword section when you upload***


Martha shows these as sundae treat dishes that are lined. You do not need parchment/liner paper and you can start with any size square. I used 8.5"x8.5".

Great challenge!! Here's mine for today:



CraftyTracy 02-04-2008 12:40 AM

Oh that is a great challenge definately get one done today!!!

n5stamper 02-04-2008 02:39 AM

OMGosg, I just made one of these in a smaller version with copy paper just as a template and showed it to dh as I relived my childhood. Now that I have stopped laughing I can tell you this brings back soooo many childhood memories. Thanks so much for this challenge. BTW, dh thinks I have lost my mind playing with paper again. He is leaving for work laughing at me telling me to get ready for work and quite playing. SPOILED SPORT!! LOL

GardenDiva 02-04-2008 02:46 AM

What a fun challenge. What time do you all go to bed ?? I checked at 5am EST and there were already 2 samples finished !!! With matching colored candy in them. WOW....Jackie and Faith....you rock as my granddaughters would say....

mjscrapper 02-04-2008 02:53 AM

Fun, I just taught the kids how to make these the other day and boy have they been having fun with them. Now it is my turn -- hope I have time I need to clean the studio for a class tonight, YIKES. Be back and thanks for the great challenge!

bensarmom 02-04-2008 03:07 AM

Jen, Thanks for hosting this week. This is gonna be fun.

AmberDawn 02-04-2008 03:27 AM

Well, heres my *first* one! I'm not 100% in love with it, I think it's too big and gangly, kinda looks like an alien thing, lmbo! I made it with a 12x12, next time I'll try the 8.5! Anyways, it was still fun and I'll try again tomorrow! Thanks again Jen!

Great challenge since I recently saw this project sheet at Michaels AND I have enjoyed teaching these old standbys to my own DD...last year we were all over these "cootie catchers" and this year it's cat's cradle.

Oh my gosh, my project for today is to make a hostess gift for a friend -- she is so into baby right now and is planning a shower -- I'll make one for her hostess gift -- THANK YOU!!!

Toy 02-04-2008 05:41 AM

Jen, you rock! I looked at this challenge and said, no way! These were "cootie catchers" back in the day! What fun to make them into little candy dishes. I think I'll be using this idea for a gathering, soon!

Here's my:
