we have our dinner here at the house or at a restaurant. A table favour is given to everyone.
This year I found a load of them and took a few ideas and made my own.
One ornament, 18 candies, 1 sprig of holly, 1 name tag with red ribbon.
The ornaments are plastic and I bought them at a sale last Christmas. Unfortunately I can’t count, so I didn’t buy enough. There are 13 of us with girl/boyfriends included. I still have to go back and buy one more. Lordy, lordy.
I went to the bulk food store and bought a ton of Smarties Christmas candy only to find out the one I tested was smaller than most of them. Fortunately I bought some others that slid right in. Shucks and darn, I’ll just have to eat those Smarties! Don’t know as I can handle that.
Take the top off and put the candies in. Yes, I counted them. Don’t want any hard feelings this close to Christmas. Pop the top back on and then decorate.
I ran the name tags off on the printer. I found this cute little tree to decorate them with and then found a font I liked. I ran them off on sort of fancy parchment card stock. They look really good.
Punch a hole in and put the ribbon through. Tie it at the hanger to it doesn’t get lost.
When I was at Michaels I found this swaggy thing that was half price. These are great for taking apart and using parts and pieces of them. It was just plastic but I used my side cutters to snip off the piece I wanted. I dabbed that green tip thingie with hot glue and then stuck it in place right where the holder part is……here I think I might see if another piece of greenery will work on the other side of this one. If it does I have 13 of them to “fix”……well, once I have Karl’s done that is.
