Christmas Leftovers

Don't put away your favorite Eyelet Outlet holiday brads just yet, since they have one more important job to do. Because if, like me, you had a wonderful Christmas yesterday, you might like to say so to your friends and family, so why not use those last few brads in the packet to make some quick and easy thank you notes?

Holiday Light Brads really don't need much more than a string to anchor them. Mine happens to be machine stitched and a bit curly, but yours could be long or short, straight or curvy! Just lightly mark their path with a pencil, then draw, stamp or sew your string base. Add a sentiment et voila! One fun and fab mail-able card is DONE!

Ornament Brads are another fun and choice and all they need is something on which to hang. Again, my trusty sewing machine came to the rescue: I stitched five cords of various lengths and added a brad to the end of each. Alternatively, you could make hangers from twine or ribbon, or add  simple hand stitching with embroidery floss.

And now all that's left is for me to THANK YOU for dropping by, because I happen to know there's a different kind of Christmas leftovers awaiting me... in the fridge! ♥♥♥
