and the Very Best of
Christmas Pins

Becky Roberts' Elves are the perfect paper crafts to make for the holidays:

I made a whole bunch of them for my PJ Party last week. They have small clothespins (1 3/4" size from Michaels) on the back which makes them useful in a variety of different ways. I'm using them for hand delivered cards to dress up the envelopes a bit...and who doesn't appreciate a little Ghirardelli holiday treat?!

The photos below show the two variations of attaching the clothespins to the chocolates with landscape and portrait orientations:

...and here are some pics from my PJ Party last week:

Oh! What fun it is to have friends like these!

Happy Holidays!

I'll be back posting again in January 2016 ^_^

Christmas Crafting and the
Very Best of Pinterest Pins

LOVE this idea with York Peppermint Patties!

I used Nesties to make a large one, and I bought a package of mints at Walgreens to make a smaller version:

The larger York patties are individually packaged inside the bag, but they are no longer covered tightly in foil and have air in the silver cellophane packaging. See the mint in the foreground in the pic below:

...so I poked a small hole with a pin in the packaging on each one to release the air, then I taped the flaps to the center so the ends wouldn't stick out beyond the dark blue scalloped circles.

Here are some more York patty craft ideas on Pinterest:

It's the most wonderful time of the year
to bring smiles (via our

 close to our hearts!

Happy holiday crafting!
