Light Up Your Festive Table!

Heavyweight tracing paper is great stuff!  The calligraphers can emboss their lettering onto it.  The quillers can glue their quilling to it and it can be decoratively painted.

We cut out rectangles 21cm x 7.5cm, decorated with our chosen craft and then curled it into a tube.

Simple (or festive) paper clips can be used to hold the ends together or cutting a simple flap and slot will work.  A flickering t-light will make your work come alive.  Have fun!
