Hallo allemaal,
Is de kerst stress al toegeslagen bij jullie?
Boodschappen doen: "oh jee...voorraad op bij de supermarkt...wat nu???"

De werkbeschrijving kunnen jullie hier vinden op de blog van Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L®.

Hi everyone, are you doing? any Christmas stress yet?
Grocery shopping and finding the ingredients all sold out at the supermarket? what now?
Or maybe you forgot to buy a little gift for someone? Yep...great! with the shops overcrowded with people who apparentlt have the same problem as you! Well...for thos of you I might have the solution :-) Easy to make chocolate wrappers! The instructions on how to make the wrappers are on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® blog (click here).
