Paper Strip Candy Cane Ornament and Gift Topper
My mom, daughter and I did some shopping for the men in our life on Saturday morning (sloshing through the cold rain)...
then we met up with dad and my son for lunch at In and Out Burger. Poor hubby was working hard while we played.
Here's what you need to make them: 1/2 inch by 12 inch strips of card stock in red and white, glue, skewer, baker's twine or cording.
To make these paper spirals, simply take a strip of paper and begin tightly wrapping around a skewer until the paper is completely wound up. Remove from skewer and allow to open up a little. Add a dab of glue to the end, press and hold for a couple of minutes until it is secure. (you could use hot glue for this also). Continue twirling strips of paper until you have 5 white and 4 red spirals.
Monkey Bread has been requested for breakfast, but I'm not sure what the rest of the day will hold. It's just our small family, should I stick with traditional Christmas fare? What are you having?
