My tia is hosting a little New Year’s Day get-together for some posole. Since she’s got the food covered, I thought it’d be cool to take something fun and festive for everybody. However since Christmas just passed, I have no desire to shop or spend money, so I shopped my house and pantry and party supply boxes to see what I could come up with.
I knew I wanted to go with black and white and gold and silver, and steer clear of Christmassy colors. I found a leftover box of gold Christmas crackers, pulled out all the remaining silver Hershey candies, found some gold & silver toy coins in the party box as well as some leftover party horns, and I had some silver Airheads candies in the pantry.
I had some little black lunch bags and folded those up to create pockets, and stitched some fun tinsel ribbon trim from A Million Memories, along with some other gold and silver ribbons from May Arts.
And then I just embellished the ribbon trims with random silver and black and white and gold bits and baubles from my stash and also from A Million Memories.
Lastly, I decorated the front of my pockets with Glitz stickers and pieces, filled up my pockets, and we’re party ready!
