Santa hat strawberry cookies!

Wondering what treats to take to your Xmas party? Why not take these super cute simplified version of santa hat strawberry cookies by Domestic Fits.

Here's what you need:

- Strawberries
- Biscuits of your choice
- Cream cheese icing - easy recipe here

Add the icing into a piping bag. If you don’t have a piping bag, add to a large, heavy duty, zip lock bag and cut about 1cm off the bottom corner, this can be used as a make-shift piping bag.
Pipe a dime sized amount of cream onto the cut end of the strawberry and place in the middle of your sugar biscuit. Pipe the cream around the base of the strawberry, as well as a pea sized amount on the tip of the berry to resemble Santa’s Hat.

DIY shoe string necklace

Here's a super quick shoe string necklace I made using the same shoe string bracelet tutorial I posted last month. The only difference is I looped another shoe string on both ends to make it long enough for a necklace.

DIY: Upcycle gift bow with magazine paper

Paper bags, old newspapers, fabric scraps -- you're probably already using them for eco-friendly gift wrap. But did you know you could create beautiful bows from the pages of our magazine?
You'll need a page per bow (best if mostly one color) and some double-sided tape.
1. Cut the page lengthwise into nine 3/4-inch-thick strips of heights shown: Three at 11 inches, three at 10 inches, two at 9 inches, and one at 3 1/2 inches. 
2. Twist each strip to form loops at both ends. Make a circle out of the smallest.
3. Secure the ends with a piece of double-sided tape.
4. Layer and stick, starting with the longest strips. End with the circle in the center.
To make these bows as featured on "The Martha Stewart Show," use strips of paper shopping bags, which result in a more sturdy bow. For a fuller bow, cut strips to be 1 inch thick and make the shortest strip about 4 1/2 inches instead of 3 inches. Sections of bow can be held together easily with double-sided tape, but for added strength, use a screw punch to punch a hole in the center of each bow section and secure together with a gold or silver brad. Attach the final single loop with double-sided tape or hot glue.
