i wanted to personalize them, so i used some flashcards that didn't make the garland cut and used both first and last initials. (i only had one of each letter, so i had to mix things up.) i followed bakerella's fabulous guide with the size of fabric to use and then tied with bakers twine. she included printable instructions (thanks!), which i cut out and placed on top of stiff felt.
here's a nice rear few. speaking of rear views. today i was wearing my robe and i caught myself in the mirror and had a flashback of that special k commercial, where the mom is bending over and the kids like, "santa?" yea. help!
sam was a huge help in getting these all filled and ready to go. it was kind of like doing sand art. just to be on the safe side sam and i made a batch just to make sure they were ok. yea. they're real good. cheers!
tip: i put the nuts on top, so that if people weren't big nut fans they could just scoop them out!
