Lighted Christmas package

These Christmas packages are wonderful gifts. They are made with hollow glass blocks- building supply store. Take block put it in bucket of water- use drill with bit made to drill glass- insert only bit part of drill on block in water (water lubricates- also, glasses bits won't fly) drill hole big enough to stuff the strand of Christmas lights inside. Let dry, put in Christmas lights- Use wide ribbon- wrap and make it look like a package. You can change the ribbon to keep it out yr around. Makes wonderful night light. My mother-in-law made this one. The doll was given to me by my mil too. She didn't make it- it is a purchase from Danbury I believe. Linda 1/21/05
