Need Takeout Containers?

Gum and medications that come packaged in the blister packs can be use for takeout and grocery store packaging.
I had some gum packaging and made them into containers for cookies, salads, whatever.....
 Cut sets of two apart as shown
Remove all the foil; I even used an emery board to help....
Make a STRAIGHT line between the two pieces with your craft knife being careful not to cut all the way through. You are trying to make a hinge.

I used my fingernail to help manipulate the fold
 This is what it should look like
Trim the edges evenly rounding the corners very carefully
Clean up any rough or jagged edges
And you have clear plastic containers for your store or take out foods
Hope everyone has a good week!

Hi, All!
Been working with a life sized pattern for ladies lingerie to try and get a workable mini pattern.
I just can’t get the proportion of the bra cups correct to make them curve out.
You may have better luck than I.
Here is the pattern I am trying to adapt:

Also, this one:

If you want really spectacular mini lingerie, check out this blog and etsy shop:
She is also on Pinterest:
Over the past year or so I have been able to acquire a modest collection of Marlies bra and panty sets.

Absolutely gorgeous! Her work is so neat and precise. I’ve never seen any others to beat it. My pictures do not do them justice.

The bra actually opens in the back with tiny hooks. She even makes a matching box for them! Just beautiful!

I don't think I will ever achieve Marlies' results but we can try, can't we?

At least now you have a pattern to practice on.....

See you again soon!
