So yesterday I was at Merivale mall dropping off some films (I'll put pics up soon) and afterwards wandered into a homeware shop called 'The Homestore' to get some cupcake cases...

And after diving into a treasure trove of cookie cutters I came across this one!!!

So Charlie and I made some LEMON DINOSAUR COOKIES!! Using this good ol' edmonds recipe...

Then we made green lemon icing with water,lemon juice, melted butter, icing sugar and green food colouring!

This was the result:


Here are a few close ups of the real cute ones...

Dinosaur attack! (Brendan my brother helped with these ones)

Sparkly scales!

Charlies hip-jop dino, complete with bling and grillz!

Cow dinosaur... or maybe it is sick dinosaur? Hahaha

I think next time I will make them chocolate cookie with mint icing!!

Secret BOOKS!

I have always wanted to make one of these secret books!

Firstly find an aptly named book... this one is called "The face of innocence" - perfect!

N.B, if you feel bad chopping up books, find one that has already been ruined, waterlogged, scribed on etc.

Next using a strong PVA glue, glue the edges of the book pages.

Leave a few of the beginning pages out of this gluing... Now leaving the book OPEN, dry it overnight under a pile of heavy books.

When it is dry, mark out where you a going to cut it.
I kinda followed the books' text.

Then begin to cut using a sharp craft knife!

Cut and cut and cut until you reach the bottom...

Now glue the inside pages

Then CLOSE the book and dry overnight
Then cut a piece of velvet to size and hot glue it in!

Then put in all your precious things...

And hide away in the bookcase!
