Santa tied my our Christmas bell to the handle of the scooter with ribbons and greens. That Santa...hes a detail oriented kind of guy!
This is truly a magical, little red Radio Flyer scooter. Its cherry! Little Red Radio rode all the way to Minnesota from Ohio. JMS contributor Miss Kathy gifted me with this little beauty and I have been itching to put it to good use. Thanks a bunch, Kath!
Santa pops a wheelie.
Red, sleek, and ready to fly! My guess is this will be taking a few laps around the house after the gifts have been unwrapped. Youre never too old for a scooter.
The gifts are boxed in plain craft packing boxes. No wrapping paper required. They are secured to the scooter with ribbon making for easy manuvering at 4 in the morning.
Radio Red will be tree side come Christmas morning and marked with a vintage letter A for A.J.
Ding, dong, ding, dong.....Christmas bells are ringing!

You've seen how Miss Elizabeth's gifts from the big man in red will be delivered ....this is for Master A.J. Scooters just make me think of little boys so this seemed an obvious choice for gift presentation for my son. He may be 25, but he will always be my little boy.


Did you make this?
After you make it, show it off to other members in the Member Junk area.

shabbychick writes: Hey Sue - So glad you're able to put the scooter to good use - and what better way than a special delivery on Christmas morning?

Your packaging is perfectly "cardboard chic" - and the ribbon and bell are just the right touch! What lucky kids - I'm sure they never know what to expect from you!! :)

Keep up the happy holiday ideas - we love 'em!!
