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.
