0apr09 374 Cubans are a great sandwich, especially for picnicking. They have no mayo, and are good either hot or cool. They don’t require alot of ingredients, and since they are pressed, they stay together well for transport. Here’s a photo-tutorial on how to make them, without a sandwich press!

How to Make a Cuban Sandwich

Bracelet MakingThis is a fun and easy project, costs less than $1 to make, has tons of possibilities for customization, requires no jewelry making skill or real tools, and is a way to recycle stuff that would be thrown away! What could be better?? Inspired by something I used to do as a kid, this tutorial explains how to make friendship bracelets out of fishing tackle (specifically a barrel swivel) and faux shrinky dinks from #6 plastic (like the Shrinky Dinky Test Lab experiments)

Completed FrontHere is a fun and quick project, perfect for a gift for a little girl! Or adapt this using bolder flowers without the heart and make a fun funky adult brooch. The technique is quite simple, and it’s a great thing to do with felted sweater scraps (though of course you could use store bought felt if you wish). It even uses a safety pin for it’s “pin” so you can probably do this with materials you have around the house, today!
