Bacon and Eggs Keychains: “Crafter’s Book of Clever Ideas” Test Run

Posted on March 30th, 2014 in Crafts

I love fun crafting books, so I was thrilled to recently get my hands on the brand new “The Crafter’s Book of Clever Ideas” by my friends Andrea and Cliff Currie. You may know Andrea Currie as a winner on the TLC show “Craft Wars.” Well, this book not only has clever ideas, just like the title says, but it offers a fun twist in that Andrea gives her take on a project, and then Cliff gives his take, so it’s a crafting battle of the sexes.Cover_U6489_TheCraftersBook.indd

While there are lots of super fun projects in the book, one in particular made me giggle, and I just had to try it out for myself. It’s the bacon and eggs keychain, made with Mod Podge Melts, which I am now addicted to. You just put some white Mod Podge Mini Melt sticks in a hot glue gun and form the bacon and egg shapes. photo copy 5

I am totally digging the finished project. It was so easy, and makes me want to have breakfast.IMG_7323
