Christmas in July Finale





Happy Friday to Everyone!

This is our last installment of

"Christmas in July."

Today we are talking: Gifts

and I have two fun activities 
for you.

Paper Clip Angel


Items Needed:


Butterfly Paperclips

(any office store should
have them)
9 mm Pony Beads
1/4" ribbon


1. Hold the clip in your hand and 

squeeze the "wings " a bit if needed.

2. Cut your ribbon approx 12" long 

and fold in half. Trim the ribbon so 
you can slip on the bead.

3.Slip the ribbon through the middle 

of the clip, pull up making sure the 
ribbon is even then slip the pony 
bead on.

4. Tie and knot and you are finished.


Go to youtube for a video if you 

need a visual. Google "Paperclip 
Angel."

Super easy and fast!


Great for small trees or package 
decorations.



Peanut Clusters

These are sooooo simple
and fast too!

1 (12 oz.) bag chocolate chips
1 (12 oz.) bag dark chocolate 
chips
1 (10 oz.) bag peanut butter chips
(secret ingredient)
1 (10 oz) container of peanuts
Wax/Parchment paper
Baking Sheet (s)

In a microwave bowl mix the
chips together and cook in 
the microwave for 2 minutes.

Stir well, add the nuts and 
stir again.

Drop by a spoonful on a wax
paper lined baking sheet.

Place in the refrig to chill.

Package in containers, bags etc
and give to family, friends and 
coworkers.


These are also "kid friendly"
activities.

Enjoy!
