    I used this idea for our office party, and everyone liked it. Some even took their's home as a momento of the great time they had. I used ribbon instead of cord, and took the ones left over home, and used for tying colored plastic wrap around little bundles of Christmas treats for my grandchildren. I used lime and hunter green felt, and silver, red, green, and gold jingle bells. Thank you for the grand idea!!!
