Here is an alternative idea for bon bons at Christmas time. I enjoy hand crafted items and this year I’ve replaced “off the shelf” bon bons with these very easy, delightful, home-crafted items. I used green paper, which is slightly thicker than normal paper, yet not quite cardboard as it still needed to be flexible. The dimensions of the paper/card was 155mm x 295mm. Fold in half and glue along the long edge and one of the small edges.
I added an assortment of trinkets to make it fun, including a puzzle and instructions of how to make a paper plane. On Christmas Day we sit around chatting, and so I’ve included a couple of things to keep the fingers busy. We have 3 small grandsons, and I know they will love the paper planes just as much as the adults.
Lastly, I added a sticker and then glued the final side. As our table cloth will be red and white, I made these items in green. Can’t wait to see the table decorated.
