last year my friend barb came over and we made some little crafty things for our respective christmas tables, including the surprise balls.
they were a very big hit with the whitehaired ladies, which would be the largest demographic at my mom's christmas table.
so i made some more this year.
basically, it's just little toys and stickers and candies rolled up in yards and yards of brightly colored tissue paper. they take ninety-bazillion hours to make and three minutes to unwrap, but it's very festive and it makes the whitehaired ladies laugh so if you ask me it's a good use of my time.
