Pretty paper items. Maybe I'll have to make some for my beer party that I haven't had yet. ;)

Or maybe they're not appropriate for a beer party?

Maybe the medallions could work. Awards for whoever can drink the most. And somehow I doubt that would be you.

Wow! That is a very nice creation. I can’t believe that we can do such things on a crepe paper. I wish I can do that to. This is a great project to do with our family.

This post reminded me of when I decided to taste crepe paper one time. Bad idea, but most people already knew that! Something to definitely keep away from the kiddos... YUCK.
