I was tempted to go out and buy a set of To-Go Ware utensils for my trip to Blogher because I'll be eating out for an entire weekend and I really want to avoid using disposables whenever possible. In case you aren't familiar, To-Go Ware makes super cute bamboo utensils wrapped in nifty little holders that are perfect for stashing in your briefcase or purse. Keeps you from needing those pesky, plastic disposables when you are forced to eat on-the-run.
But then I got smart. I decided to put my money where my mouth is and create my own little utensil package instead of succumbing to the temptation to buy something new. Why buy new when used will do? Anyway, it's pretty darned simple to make your own:
- Grab some mix-n-match utensils that are already sitting in your kitchen drawer.
- Find a cloth napkin. (mine was one a sample that I made for my book!)
- Place the utensils near one side of the napkin
- Fold over the top and bottom of the napkin
- Roll it all up
- Tie with a pretty ribbon
Voila! My very own little utensil set. Pretty cute too, if I can say so myself :)
