Normal people: Let’s watch a Christmas movie and make snowflakes.
Result: 2-3 snowflakes, then everyone slowly abandons the idea as they get sucked into the movie (Let’s face it the Santa Clause is a holiday gem).
Me: Let’s watch a Christmas movie and make snowflakes.
Result: A couple of cute snowflakes. These are pretty, but I can do better. How about 3-D snowflakes? Sounds good.
Then paper chains. Oh wait, let’s do patterned paper chains.
In the shape of reindeer.
And candy canes.
And Santa. Santa sort of looks like a elf. Still works.
Google other “paper crafts.”
It’s getting late now so an overly complicated project is in order… hmm youtube tutorial for origami star/ball thing? Yes. This makes a lot of sense and definitely represents Christmas. It has 12 separate components? Even better. They are supposed to magically snap together without tape? haha.
But what should I do with it all? Hang it from the ceiling? Ok. Still looks like it could use more. Hmmm, let’s add the tissue paper puffs I made for my friend’s bridal shower.
Contemplate making more items to truly “elf” the room. Mentally try to decide how much paper I have left…then realize it is 1 am, I have lost the tape, and I’m lying on the living room floor. Decide it’s time for bed.
Currently: getting swept up in the December Christmas-party-athon. The last one I went to was my church’s white elephant party. I ended up with a box filled with s’mores kits and play doh.
