So here I am tying up some loose ends. I won’t leave you all hanging! Instead, I will get on with the fridge tutorials that I promised back in October before all of the crazy hit. Sorry for the long delay! Of course, before we begin, be sure to check out the full build of Maryellen’s Fridge.
Okay, let’s get started shall we?
First up is that ice cube tray!
This is seriously cute, and it’s so easy to make! All you need is a small rectangular lid, and some Model Magic clay. We painted our ice cube tray with silver paint.
Next up is the butter!
In hindsight, if I had to make butter blocks again, I would probably just use model magic clay and paint it yellow.
Since I was being uber crafty at the time, thinking that maybe I could wrangle up something cool and magical, my butter blocks ended up being an overly thought out, super complicated project, in other words, perfect for crazy people to do at midnight, or beyond. 😛
Ahem. Let’s commence.
I first cut out four rectangles of thin cereal box cardboard. My plan was to wrap the rectangles in parchment paper, and create a butter block mold that I could fill with hot glue. Hot glue doesn’t stick to parchment paper, so a 3D mold made of the stuff would be perfect, right?
Lo and behold, in actuality, nothing sticks to parchment paper. Literally nothing, you guys. Seriously, and for real. I tried everything. I tried taping the parchment paper to the cardboard strips. I tried packing tape. I tried glue. Nothing sticks to this stuff. Good for flat hot glue projects. Not good for 3D hot glue projects.
I was finally able to get duct tape to stick to it somewhat, long enough to hold a basic rectangular butter block shape anyway. This was pretty much me just sticking it on there, and wrapping it around the whole block so that the tape would just stick back onto itself. I was kind of losing my marbles by this time, and ready to scrap the whole project altogether. LOL! 😛
Needless to say, the butter blocks turned out cute, but next time, I think I will save all the hassle, along with the hot glue.
Lastly, we added some peanut butter. It doesn’t necessarily belong in the fridge, but we thought it was a staple anyway. To make this, I used a small bubbles favour from a birthday party. I cleaned it out, and printed a peanut butter label much the same as I did the jam jar labels. (Don’t mind my food colouring stained fingers. LOL!) Just tape the label on. Cute! 🙂
Thanks for joining us today!
