Monday Make Itz


Here is a fun quick project to use the dried flowers and herbs
from the summer garden.
Joanns Store online craft projects gets the credit!

Simple Tea Bath

  • Description
  • Reviews


  • Small scraps of fabric 3/8" x 7-1/2" strips
  • 1 yd Pellon® Cheesecloth
  • Dried flowers or herbs
  • Epsom salts
  • Rotary cutter, ruler & mat
  • Scissors


  1. Place the cheesecloth on the cutting mat, three layers thick. Cut one 9" square out of the three layers for each bag. The cheesecloth is delicate and cutting all three layers at once is easier. Place about 1/3 cup of the ‘tea’ in the center. Dried lavender, chamomile buds or rose petals can be used as well as epsom salts.
  2. Gather up the edges of the cheesecloth.
  3. Tie with a strip of scrap fabric. Use fabric that does not easily bleed. Place the bath tea in a tub of hot water and enjoy. If cotton scraps were used to tie the bags, the entire bag can be placed in the compost after using.

Small Bundle of Rubber or Clear Stamps

Have you ever wondered why small stamp sets are bundled together?
The sets are made to be used together to make collage type projects.
Used together the small stamps make one large image.
These can be used to stamp 'over' each other with complimentary colors
or specialty stamp sets.
These sets are especially useful in art journals.

1 pkg. fudge brownie mix
2/3 cup oil
2 eggs
3/4 cup hot water
1 jar (12oz) hot fudge sauce
vanilla ice cream and choc. sauce for serving

1. Line large slow cooker with a disposable liner. (or grease it really good.)
2. In large bowl combine brownie mix, oil, eggs and 1/4 cup water until combined and glossy.
    Pour batter into slow cooker.
3. Meanwhile, wisk together remaining hot water and jar of hot fudge sauce until smooth.
    Pour over brownie batter.
4. Top with lid and cook on high for 3-3 1/2 hours or until edges are set.
    If your slow cooker cooks faster, turn to low.
    Don't over cook, center will be gooey-this is OK!
5. Spoon onto plate or bowl and serve warm with ice cream and chocolate sauce.

TIP- to store leftovers, just lift liner and place liner and all into a bowl. cover and store in fridge.
