    I'm very proud of you!
    you had me for a second there! Some people say "necessity is the mother of invention" well I I say having no money is the mother of invention. So I really had to do this stuff. I do appreciate your compliment, I needed it after spending some of my winter vacation curled up with a paper trimmer.

      Ya know making this stuff really makes you appreciate how much work goes into something. My first bag took me 1 hour to make but now I have it down to 30 minutes. So to answer your question...NO!

              Yes, I only have the ribbon slid into the one side of the bag and not the other so I just open the one side, put the matches in, and tie them up. I really wanted to get them done so I did as much as I could with out being silly and having to undo stuff.

                I love them. Do you write these poems yourself or are you finding them somewhere?. They are always so beautiful!

                      This poem I found

                      The Candle

                      Like the light of a bright candle

                      And the warmth of a fire's glow,

                      We brighten every corner

                      When we let love show.

                      The one on my popcorn box tags I wrote myself.

                      You would be stealing it several times over as it wasn't my idea. It is way cheaper to do them yourself than to pay well over $3 to get them done for you.

                      Thanks, I am really hoping they reuse them. I made sure each guest room booked would have one female in it becuase I can't see too many guys carrying these around.
