Felt Clip Favors

December 22nd, 2008

Today I had lunch with six girlfriends from church.  I took Lori’s advice from this post after deciding there was no way I was going to be able to host the Cookie Exchange Party of my dreams.  Instead I printed up the reading from Lori’s post along with a little note inviting some friends to join me at a favorite sandwich shop for lunch.  Despite the busy time of year, they all accepted the invite so I was excited!  I decided it would be fun to have a little party favor for each lady, but it would have to be something quick and easy since it’s Christmas crunch time.  Here’s what I came up with.

These are just the jumbo paper clips from Walmart with SU Felt Fusion flowers and Felt Flurries snowflakes attached to punched out cardstock circles with rhinestones brads.  There’s another punched circle on the back and the paper clip is sandwiched between the circles with E-6000 adhesive.

clippies-close-up-jami-08-custom-2.jpgI put the 6 clips together last night in a very short amount of time, but of course this morning I decided they needed to be attached to *something*.  In my frenzied haste I went through about three different ideas for stand up place cards that just didn’t work.  I ended up with this little card – the clip slides through a hole punched with the slot punch and the oval is attched with foam tape to the front.  The sentiment is from a retired SU set.

 

I arrived at the sandwich place a few minutes early and put some tables together and set out decorative napkins from my stash in the pantry along with these little clips.  So even though we went out I got to play *hostess* just a bit.  I do love playing hostess!  So even if you don’t have the time or energy to cook a meal or clean your house or decorate for a party, you can still have time with friends.  Just pick a time and a place and type up a heartfelt note to invite them!

 

Lunch was a great break from the last minute Christmas frenzy (which at the moment feels like it’s going to kill me).  I still have just a few more gifts to shop for tomorrow as well as planning Christmas Eve dinner and going to the grocery store….aahhh and the wrapping, wrapping, wrapping.  I’m off to bed with plans to get at it all first thing in the morning.  Thanks for stopping by.
