There is just time (if you are quick) to.....

....last minute wrapping (70s paper of course!)

............make some little Christmas trees for the Christmas tree...

Made from lovely scraps that I bought years ago  when travelling around America on Greyhound buses! 

Or perhaps...

 ....whip up some paper chains made from falling apart books

or maybe....

...glue your chosen objet to the base of the jam jar - add drops of glycerine (from the chemist) and some glitter - all done.  I have found that you don't need to glue the lid - this is from last year and still watertight.

Finally add a few more choccies into the tin...

Feet up!

Merry Christmas to you all - I wish you a peaceful and restful Christmas
