Inexpensive and Unusual Holiday Gift

"My dear friends,
Somewhat embarrassing to admit,
my annual bonus has been depleted
and Christmas is tight this year.
I will be making bedroom slippers
for you all as gifts.
Please let me know your sizes.

You'll most likely agree that it's a splendid idea, and should you wish to do the same, I've included the instructions below:

How to make bedroom slippers out of maxi pads:

You need four maxi pads to make a pair.

Two of them get laid out flat, for the foot part.

The other two wrap around the toe area to form the top.

Tape or glue each side of the top pieces to the bottom of the foot part.

Decorate the tops with whatever you desire, silk flowers (this is most aesthetically appealing), etc.

These slippers are:
* Soft and Hygienic
* Non-slip grip strips on the soles
* Built in deodorant feature keeps feet smelling fresh
* No more bending over to mop up spills
* Disposable and biodegradable
* Environmentally safe
* Three convenient sizes: Regular, Light day, and Get out the
Sand Bags.

I've attached a photo of the first pair I made so that you can see the nifty slippers for yourself....

Awaiting your response. It's crucial that I get the right size for each one of you."

I found this at Go Forth &.....
Thanks Chana!

Good comments, both of you.
I borrowed this post from Chana, who graciously permitted me to use it on my blog. Glad you both enjoyed it as much as I did.
