Body scrub DIY with only 3 ingredients!
DIY project: Fold old maps into origami globes.
Other sheets of paper, such as magazine, catalog, book, or old sheet music pages, also could be used.
For this project, 5” square pieces of maps were folded into globes, then strung on twine. If you’d prefer to leave your globes loose, you could display a bunch of them in bowls, or group them on trays and add other items to make centerpieces (great for travel-themed parties). What other uses could you find for them?

NUTELLA HOT CHOCOLATE
1 cup milk (I use skim)
2 1/2 Tbsp Nutella
1 Tbsp Cocoa
Tiny pinch of salt
In a small sauce pan over medium heat, whisk all ingredients together until well blended and hot. Pour in a cup and top with homemade whipped cream and shaved chocolate.
HOMEMADE WHIPPED CREAM
1 cup Heavy Whipping Cream
2 Tbsp Sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
Place a medium bowl and your beaters from your electric mixer in the freezer for 10 minutes (this helps the whipped cream stiffen faster)
Pour all ingredients into the chilled bowl and start to beat. Start off on low and gradually work your way up to high. It will be done when it is the consistency of ..well…whipped cream. Don’t over beat.
DIY Meditation Jar (Recipe with glue on LEFT, recipe with glycerin on LOWER RIGHT, Keep Calm from here). Great gift - put a great label on it like,“Keep Calm and Sparkle” or “Keep Calm and Glitter On” for a stressed out person (children or grownups). Saw something almost identical on Tumblr and reblogged it here but wanted to know where it came from. The idea came from Still Life with Circles here for use with children. Her recipe has glycerin (used in all snowglobes) and liquid soap and is more snowglobe-like. Then Here We Are Together here modified the recipe and added glue:
“… mixed 1 tablespoon of pink glitter-glue with about 1 cup of hot water, then added pink food colouring and a tiny tub of glitter.
The glue makes the water so thick and gooey that the glitter just slowly and gently swirls around, it takes about 5 minutes for all the glitter to settle, perfect to gather your thoughts!”
