Pretty simple but it sure decorated up the package! I used pop dots to keep the banners in just the right place.
I used my tiny hole punch to punch holes in the corners of each banner and then threaded my twine on my super sharp needle with a large eye. I then threaded the twine through the punched holes to hang them. Super easy that way to get the twine through the tiny holes.
Do you have any packages to decorate this year? I decided to forgo the bright, colorful wrapping paper this year and am going to use Kraft paper and decorate each package individually with stamps and twine. I think I'll love seeing them all under the tree!
In case you are wondering, after we ate, we all boarded the trolley and took a Christmas lights tour of the town! It was a lot of fun (even though I had to ride the church van behind the trolley since the trolley could only fit 27 and we had a group of 35!).
It was a fun night!
I also wanted to briefly tell you about one of the ornaments I gave at the ornament exchange last night. McPherson has a store called Clayworks operated by the Disability Supports of the Great Plains. Their clients with disabilities for whom the challenges are too great to achieve competitive community-based employment come to the Clayworks store and make ornaments, necklaces and plaques out of clay. They paint them and decorate them. Each time an item is sold, the person who created that item earns the income from the sale! Isn't that a wonderful program? If you live close to the McPherson area, please try to stop by and support this organization! Their store is located on Main Street right next to The Well.
Have a great day today! Thanks for stopping by!
