Add the blueberry Jello into the boiling water and keep stirring until all the Jello has dissolved. Add a cup of cold water and mix. Pour this into small glasses and refrigerate until the Jello sets. Place the peace slices over the set Jello in such a way that the peach slice should resemble a boat on blue water (Jello). Insert the toothpick into the triangular paper in a manner that looks like it is a sail. Put the other end of the toothpick into the peach and serve.
