Are you doing ornaments with your students this year? Yes?? Here's a cute and fun way to package your holiday ornament.
Last year, I made these:
I know our sweet Terry had already blogged about these. You can read about them here. Mine are similar but I used clear orbs and stuffed mine with snow. You can read how I did mine here. What I also wanted to do was transport them home in a safe way. All you will need is some Dixie Cups, some shredded paper (used for baskets) and some ribbon.
You will need 2 of these for each ornament. These will work with the smaller ornaments. Anything bigger and it may not fit. By the way-- a mommy tip: this is also a great way to take home cupcake from a birthday party. The cupcakes fit nicely into the cup. I've taped them together (the cups) and when I get home I cut the sides (so that I just pull apart the side of the cup hopefully leaving the cupcake and frosting in tact!) that way I don't lose any frosting! Ha!! It's all about the sugar!! LOL!
Put a hole punch under the rims on both sides. Stuff some of the paper on both sides.
Then, tie the cups together (this part is hard, especially if your ribbon unravels! grrr!). You can attach a little homemade tags from the kids! SO easy and simple.
Hope you will come back tomorrow for more goodies, tips, and surprises!
From my family to yours, I hope that you all have a wonderful and blessed holiday!
Love to you!
