I saw a tutorial at The Space Between Blog where Karah made Christmas tree ornaments from her wedding cards. I have been saving the birthday cards Eli received for his first birthday this past year and thought this would be a great way to use them. I think I will do this every year. It will be fun to pull them out and remember as the years go by.
First I took out the cards and traced a circle around the part I wanted to cut out.
I was bummed not to ba able to use this handmade card from his cousins, but 3D wouldn’t work here.
Then I cut out the circles which I then folded in half.
The resulting half circles were then glued together to form the two halves of the ornament.
Before gluing the 2 halves together I glued in the ends of the ribbon hanger.
Here it is hanging on our tree.
I like how Karah’s ornaments look with the glitter on the edges of the circles. I will probably end up doing that too, but I have to buy the glitter first!
This project is a quicky. I think it took me about 20 minutes start to finish.
