Brian took a week off of work last week to finish up his masters thesis. He presented it on Saturday, and he is officially done! We are so excited. To say thank you to a couple of coworkers and his boss for giving him time off and picking up the slack at work he wanted to make cinnamon rolls. He said that is one of the best things I make. (Thanks love) He helped me whip up a batch last night, and they turned our ooey, gooey, and delicious.
Last week I organized all my boxes, ribbon, paper, cards, etc, because it was a mess, which made it super helpful when I was deciding how to package up the cinnamon rolls. Brian was happy to put them on a paper plate and cover them with saran wrap, but I told him no way! I put four rolls on a thin piece of cardboard, wrapped them up in parchment paper and tied them with a piece of yarn. I had Brian write "Thank You" on a sticky tag that I affixed to the yarn. This all worked out and looked great, but I was surprised to find out that scotch tape does not stick to parchment paper. I had planned to wrap them up like a present, using tape to attach the lose ends, but that was not working. So I just tucked it all under and used the yarn to hold it all together. Simple, easy, and looked great.
