These are supplies for the crafts table. I finally figured out what we're gonna be making.

As we all know, I like to brag on myself. And I realized that I bragged on myself about the scarves I made for Christmas --

Side story: I made all those scarves and then realized this week that I have been wearing around a scarf with holes in it. So I started on one that I am actually going to keep for myself.

Back to bragging. I bragged about the scarves, but not about my other cute-sie project.

I saw this idea somewhere (I'd give credit, but I can't find it!), and decided it would be perfect for the thank you gifts that I needed. I didn't have to buy a whole lot of stuff that I would never use up and they are cute.

I bought a big can of metal cookie cutters at Jo-Ann's for about $10. There were 40 cookie cutters of all shapes and multiple sizes.

Then I bought a couple of bags of those candy chocolate disks and a two pack of squeezy bottles.

All I had to do was put the cookie cutters on parchment paper. Heat up the chocolates to melt them. Put the chocolate in the squeezy bottle and squeeze it into the cookie cutter.

Then I decorated with white chocolate and M&Ms.

And when the chocolate was completely set, I put them into cute little bags with a ribbon and tag and finished it off with a Christmas tree ornament.
