[doily bon bons]

I struggled to find Bon Bons for Christmas day that fitted my "theme" for this year...
So I made my own....
They were oh so easy and a great deal cheaper than bought Bon Bons.
To make my little ones, all you need is...

Bon Bon Snaps (about $2 for 12)
Cardboard roll cut into desired lengths 
Brown paper cut to A4 size
Sticky tape
Little paper doilies cut in half 
Brown twine
Wrapped lollies
Short jokes written on paper (the more corny the better)

- Tape the snaps inside the rolls
- Roll the brown paper around, secure with tape in the middle
- Tie one end with string
- Fill the roll with lollies and the little joke
- Tie the other end
- Tape the half doily around the roll (as above)

... and this was my favourite joke:
Q. What do you call a sheep with no legs?
A. A cloud

Three more sleeps!
