Hobby Builders Supply Gift Certificate And Mini Popcorn


A few days ago, I was cleaning out my spam folder and noticed an email from Hobby Builders Supply (www.miniatures.com) about a $10 gift certificate.  It was a "thank you" gift for being a loyal customer, and I was VERY excited.  I've made a plan to learn how to make miniature food because I think miniature food is adorable, and the possibilities are endless.  So my $10 gift certificate was spent on miniature utensils, which I received yesterday.  Now all I need is a massive amount of polymer clay and a clue on how to make miniature food.



Speaking of miniature food, my current project is making templates for boxed foods with the first being popcorn.  I use a free illustrator program called Inkscape which I've blogged about before.  It's a great program for creating vectors and muchhhhh cheaper than Adobe Illustrator.  Well, I finished the template, sized it to scale, and got ready to print...until I noticed I ran out of printer paper.  So my project has to wait until after work.  The template will be available for free on my blog once I make sure it works.

  1. Hey I love little surprises like our coupon. How nice of you to share your popcorn etc. I need help in using current programs. I have one that talks about vectors all of the time and I have a hard time understanding what that and other terms mean. I will visit Inkscape. I hope it is very user friendly!

    1. I don't think Inkscape is too user friendly for super beginners. It was an easy transition from Illustrator to Inkscape, but I still had to Google how to use a lot of features that I was used to. However, it's a very handy program to learn for making printables.

  2. Hello Marisa,
    Great little surprise. I'm sure you can find many tutorials on food making online to give you ideas. The pocorn box is great.
    Big hug,

  3. UTube has every tutorial imaginable. I have started a collection on my Pinteresr board. Most are specific and easy to follow. Even if not in English the pictures are very clear directions. Joanne Elder
