Christmas Dinner Surprises

Last time I told you I was making special gift boxes out of toilet paper rolls. My Mom told me if I made enough for everyone for Christmas dinner, we would decorate the table with them. Well, I got all my boxes made. Then I started on making the stuff that goes in them.


I like to save the fortunes out of fortune cookies. Some of them have some really funny saying on them. So one of the things I put into each box is one of my fortunes. Also, I put in a some caramels because they are my favourite candy.


The other thing I made is zipper pulls from pop can tabs. It takes 8 pop can tabs to make a zipper pull. You can make it longer if you want, but I thought that was a perfect size. I used the instructions that my brother gave in his blog to make the zipper pulls, only I used just one piece of ribbon and I pulled it tight on the first tab and then left the ends long on the top to tie to the zipper. It kind of looks like a bug with feelers!


Anyway, I used different colours of tabs to make my zipper pulls so they are not all the same. People can trade them if they don't get the colour they would like. You can use zipper pulls on coats or purses or backpacks. They make it easier to zip things up. Mom said that they would probably also work good as a key chain. That's what she's going to use hers for.


The last thing I put into each box is a joke. I know a lot of Christmas jokes!
