Washcloth Roses
Use the thinner washcloths that they have out in great colors depending on your project.
        Take the washcloth and place in front of you diagonally, fold in from the top then the bottom toward the center, then roll from both top and bottom once again, this should give you the width.
        Taking the washcloth, roll from one side lengthwise letting a point from the end you start come up and continue rolling and pin, glue, or tack with a needle and thread. (When you roll, roll with the inside rolled piece facing you to the inside.)

Bath Sundae
I took a large, plastic Coca Cola cup with a handle that I bought at an outlet for a $1.00. In the bottom, I put a package of Sea Salt/Milk Bath. Then I added 5 hand soaps and 2 bath bombs and stuck in 2 Coca Cola, paper-wrapped straws. I topped the whole thing off with a bath sponge, wrapped it in cellophane, added a Sundae Tag and a wooden, red bead for a cherry.

Hooded Baby Bath Towels
You fold a coordinating washcloth in half, then position in one corner of a large bath towel (or a square of nice thick terry towel yardage is even better). Seam the loose 2 sides of the washcloth at the edge of the towel corner. Add an applique onto the "hood" (washcloth) if desired.

Handprint Theme Gifts
I sponge painted a terra cotta pot, then I made a model of her hand on one of those expanding sponges and stamped the handprint all over the pot. The saying on the pot was....."thank you for helping me grow" Then add a small plant.
        Or I decoupaged on a plague to hang the same concept....handprints with the year and name of my daughter, and "thank you for helping me grow".

HOMEMADE GARLIC ROASTER
By stacking two inverted saucers together, you achieve the perfect oven for preparing two heads of garlic. The baked garlic is terrific when served with piping hot bread.
This is also an excellent addition to mashed potatoes, and everyone loves garlic-mashed potatoes!
MATERIALS:
2 Clay saucers (10 inch diameter)
Fresh Garlic
Roasted Garlic Recipe (on a personalized recipe card)
wooden knob (or 2 two-inch tiles)
glue (not hot glue)
Plate/Dish Paint
Decorative Ribbon
Attach the wooden knob in the center of the 'bottom side' of the saucer (what WOULD be the bottom if you were using it for its intended purpose underneath a clay pot) with the E6000 glue. This will serve as the handle for the garlic roaster. If you prefer to use the two-inch tiles, stack them at opposite angles to form a handle, gluing one atop the other in the center of the saucer.
After the glue has set, you may wish to paint or stencil something decorative on the exterior of the roaster, or you may just want to paint one of the two pieces. Be sure to 'sign' your name on the bottom of the roaster - after all, you created it!
A needed caution: be sure to use paint that is specifically designed for use on dishes and tableware. These paints are available at your local craft store and become dishwasher safe after baking. Read the labels, and always follow the manufacturers instructions.
Just enclose your fresh garlic along with the recipe then tie with a decorative ribbon or cording!
RECIPE: ROASTED GARLIC
2 whole heads of garlic
Preheat an oven to 425 degrees.
Using a sharp knife cut off the top one-fourth of each garlic head. Gently score the head around its middle, cutting through a few layers of the papery skin. Pull off any loose skin from the top half of the head, trying not to remove every shred. (This will make it easier to squeeze out the cooked cloves later.) Tightly wrap each head in a piece of aluminum foil and place inside your garlic roaster.
Bake until the garlic is soft when pierced with a knife, 45-60 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool. Using your fingers, squeeze the soft garlic pulp into a small bowl. Store tightly covered in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Makes about 2 tablespoons.
