I like to send my kids and grandkids ornaments for Christmas. We don't really exchange gifts anymore, I just send fudge, Christmas crack, chex mix, pajamas (family tradition, everyone needs new pjs for Christmas morning!) and an ornament. But the selections this year were just not making me happy. Too commercial or too ordinary. So I made a few. These are for the grownups in the family. And it's been so warm here in Connecticut, it's not even feeling like Christmas.

They are 4" in diameter, Chirstmas music glued to a stiffer patterned backing with 1/2 inch fan folds. I distressed the paper before and after folding. I painted some lace gold, gathered it and added button embellishments. Simple and sweet. See tut here: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=442162.0

I like Kit-Kat, unless I'm with 4 or more people.
