Grate those Cheeseheads

Here We Go Steelers! Here We Go! Pittsburgh's going to the SuperBowl!

Hey Steeler Nation! I had a great idea today when one of my friends posted "The best cheese graters are made of STEEL" on her FB status. I went to Bed, Bath, and Beyond as soon as I left work to buy mini cheese graters ($2.99)

I'm not the best at making bows, at least not the pretty big ones, so I picked up Abby and headed to the local florist. The nice clerk made a few for me that were perfect.

I couldnt wait to get home and make these. I used a floral wire to tie on the cheese graters and then covered it with a black ribbon. I then used a quickie glue pen to apply gold embossing powder to read "Grate the" on one ribbon and "Cheeseheads" on the other.

They turned out super cute! I plan on making mine into a pin but you could also use it as a favor on the table at your SuperBowl party.
Or you could get really creative and use a full size one as a cake topper for a black n gold dessert.

Here we go Steelers!!
