Christmas Party Favors

Every year we have a Christmas Dinner for the ladies of the church, and this year I offered to make a little gift for everyone that attended.  The number attending started out at 85 but quickly went up to 106!  Let me tell you, there is a big difference between 85 and 106…..If it wasn’t for my friends, Eve and Doneine, and my son, Daniel, I never would have finished on time.  Both Eve and Doneine spent a day with me working on these.  My son was up most of the night before the dinner with me helping to put them all together.  He was a great sport and did a wonderful job.  I think he’s missed his calling!  :0)

This is what my table looked like for a couple of days.  My son said it looked like the Cookie Monster threw up all over the table!

Here are some close-ups of the favor.  It’s a bookmark, purse fob, or Christmas ornament.  :0)

My sample was made with Real Red and Old Olive.  The “thousands” of others were Real Red and Garden Green!

I found an online company that sold small magnets that are super strong.  The more you buy, the cheaper it gets.  I bought 250 which came out to be approximately .07 per piece.  I used a glue dot to adhere the magnet under the ribbon, on each side.  They held great, even through the ribbon.
