You’re Da Bomb Favors

Leave a comment


So I’m a dumbass and forgot to take a picture of my final product but this is what inspired me to make my You’re Da Bomb favors for all of our new pledges for Initiation.

We have this tradition where we set out little goodie bags and throughout our I-Week, the older members put all sorts of cute little goodies in there for all of the girls. It ranges from candy to notes to mixed-tape style cd’s, you name it. Here’s what I did:

I guess I’m not the only dumbass because I just noticed that the ones I was inspired by isn’t even grammatically correct. (Your the bomb) haha.

Get along little doggie, get along

So I really want to get a dog. If I weren’t so broke right now I would like this week. One of my friends up at school just got another dog and I’m so jealous. Being home and hangin out with my family’s dog has made me really want one!

My family’s dog, Brie.

I wonder if the house I’m living at this year allows dogs? I just want to make this cute dog collar:

Martha Stewart’s How-To:
1.Use an upholstery needle and thimble to stitch half of a snap to the collar.

2.Stitch the other half of the snap to the base of a fabric flower. Those with a flat fabric bottom are easiest to work with. If your flower has a plastic base, just sew through a petal or two as close as possible to the base.

When I get a dog, it’s definitely going to be a German Shepard. I love big and intelligent dogs. I’m not a little-dog type person. I feel like I’d accidentally step on it. I think I’ll get it from a humane society. Brie is from the Milwaukee Humane Society, and we’ve never had any problems with her.

Martha Stewart’s Homemade Dog Biscuits

Makes About 5 Dozen
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup wheat germ
1/4 cup brewer’s yeast
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 tablespoons canola oil
1/2 cup low-sodium canned chicken stock, plus more for brushing

Directions
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, wheat germ, yeast, and salt; set aside

2. Place oil in a large bowl. Add stock and flour mixture in three alternating batches, beginning and ending with stock. Mix well.

3. On a lightly floured work surface, roll out dough to about 3/8-inch thick. Shape biscuits using a dog-bone-shaped cookie cutter or by cutting around a store-bought dog bone with a butter knife.(Make biscuits that are appropriate for your dog’s size.)

4. If desired, you can spell out your dog’s name or a holiday message in the dough with a toothpick (wet the toothpick first so it won’t stick).

5. Transfer to parchment-lined baking sheets. Repeat with remaining dough.

6. Bake biscuits 10 minutes. Brush with stock; rotate baking sheets, and bake 10 minutes more. Turn off oven, leaving door closed. Let dog biscuits stand in oven to dry completely, about 1 1/2 hours. Wrap as a gift, or store in an airtight container at room temperature.

I think that this is a pretty fricken cool idea and I think it’d be kindof cool to make these bags for something other than dog poop as well haha. I’m not sure what though.
