How-To: Plastic Scoopers Out of Jugs

Another fun find on Facebook. I love these simple photo-based project how-tos that are starting to show up on FB and G+ with increased frequency. The chocolate bowl I posted a few days ago has gotten a lot of attention and makers trying it out. If you try any of these quick n’ dirty hacks you see here, or you spot some especially clever ones on Facebook and G+ (or elsewhere), please send them to us.
