Tommorow we will be having a Stewardship Event at my son’s school. Garrett, I and about 150 others will be making up to 1000 PBJ’s to feed the homeless at St. Luke’s Kitchen in downtown Atlanta. The are very specific on how this has to be done, you have to use Jam, not Jelly, as it will not soak through the bread. You have to mix the PB and Jam in a mixer first before you spread it on the bread. It then must be put in baggies and put BACK in the original Loaf Bag which helps it to keep it’s shape. Learn something new everyday!
Since I have to take my Kitchen-aid to mix I decided to
PIMP IT OUT!
Here is the inspiration:
You can go to my Cricut Ideas Board to link to the great gal that makes these and sends them to you. If you don’t have a Pinterest account and would like one you need an invite just email me and I will send you one.
So I got out my Cricut ( which is awesome, I still have the 6×12 but would love it if hubby would surprise me with a 12×12 hint hint)
You can get this original model for really cheap
on E Bay if you look.
I got out some red vinyl and cut out four of this flower pattern
OK so I preempt this tutorial to say make sure you put the lower left dial or pressure on 2 with your vinyl, 1 does not cut through the vinyl and 3 cuts the backing making it harder to peel off and when its hard to peel off you get bubbles like below
Now if you do get bubbles don’t fear you can go back with a Popsicle stick or tongue depressor and press over it to get the bubbles out, I was just so excited I didn’t notice mine till the pics.
I did my best to line them up, I have not worked with vinyl a lot
so I am pretty happy with the result!
So go pimp your plain white mixer up and share with me your photo’s and ideas!
