I love this Holly! I wish I had it on the car trip I just took. It would have been a great use for my hands.

Hi, where can I buy the stiff felt and white ric rac. Lots of the ric rac for scrapbooking are colored and not white. I love to make this with my kids as a December activities. I will hang them at the fireplace and the entry to our backyard. But first have to get the material.
