1.    Layer ribbon and adhere it to your napkin using fuse binding tape
2.    Add clip on earrings to the corners for a bit of sparkles
3.    Use a coordinating bracelet as your napkin ring

Candy Cane Vase
Creating a holiday centerpiece is as simple as reusing an old vase and adding some candy canes

1.    Put an elastic band around a simple cylinder vase
2.    Secure a bunch of candy canes around your vase - make sure they line up perfectly in order to cover up the whole vase
3.    Tie a ribbon around the vase, it will cover up the elastic that is keeping the candy canes in place
4.    Add any flowers you like for a lovely holiday center piece

Holiday Crackers
Crackers are traditionally filled with a paper crown and a plastic toy;  Steven wanted to create his own  beautiful crackers filled with great usable gifts.

1.    Secure a cracker snap to the inside of a cleaned off toilet paper roll
2.    Put all your gifts and holiday treats into the roll
3.    Roll up the toilet paper roll in tissue and secure the ends with ribbon (Note: Be sure that your cracker snaps stick out of either end
4.    Add decorative paper to the outside and a small ornament to pull it all together
