This gift took a little time and energy, but mostly it was fun!
I sent them each a little gift of paper stars.
|Jars of Paper Stars|
Inside these paper stars, I put little messages. I never thought I'd be one to come up short on words, but after awhile, I started running out of things to say. I needed 93 phrases! But I did it, and then I folded them all up and put them into little jars.
I tied ribbon and string around the top of them, and filled them with the stars and "fluff". Added a tag, and a stamp..and fell in love. They are so CUTE!
Here is a close up:
|I gave them instructions to open one a day, each day for the month of December|
Not only was this a gift from my heart, it worked well with my Christmas Challenge. I wanted so badly to go out and buy some cute little jars with fancy lids. But I used what I had, and I'm glad I did.
