This is Take 2 Tuesday #2 for our Gift Tote tutorial. Last week we told you that you might not recognize some of our new ideas as the same pattern. This candy corn tote is one of them. We sewed the three colors of felt together and then cut out the pattern. We also shrank the pattern for this tote. That is one great way to change up the pattern - decrease or increase the size. The inside is lined with white felt. We're sure you could use fabric glue or hand stitch this small tote, but we have been wanting to use our sewing machines a little more so.......................
Here is the recipe for this yummy treat! This can be made for any holiday by just changing the color of "embellishments".
Halloween Chex Mix (from the Chex website)
- 9 c. Rice Chex cereal
- 1 c. white vanilla baking chips
- 1/2 c. peanut butter
- 1/4 c. butter
- 3/4 c. powdered sugar
- 1/2 c. orange, yellow and brown M&Ms
- 1/4 c. orange, yellow and brown sprinkles
Place cereal in a large bowl. In a small microwavable bowl, melt vanilla chips, peanut butter and butter on High 1 to 1-1/2 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds until melted and smooth. Pour over cereal, stirring until evenly coated.
Place half of the cereal mixture in a 1-gallon ziploc bag. Add powdered sugar. Seal bag and shake until well-coated. Spread on waxed paper to cool.
Meanwhile stir M&Ms and sprinkle into remaining half of cereal mixture. Spread on waxed paper to cool.
To serve, mix both cereal mixtures together. Store in airtight container.
