More ornaments ideas!

Inspired by a CTMH Training Academy course and Shari F.'s motto of use what you have, I pulled out some chipboard "slides" and "shapes" that have retired and created these photo ornaments.  The front is a chipboard covered with Mistletoe paper packet and Creative Basics.  After cutting out the shape and gluing it to the chipboard, I used the Finishing Files to smooth the rough cut edges.  The photos are cropped ad then attached to the back of the chipboard.  Then I used the photo hangers, and red ribbon to create the hanger.  A slightly larger piece of cardstock it attached to the back for a finishing touch.  This would be an appreciated gift for grandparents and family.  In addition, add one to your tree with the year stamped on it as a reminder of how your child has grown from year to year. 

If you don't have the slides and shapes, CTMH has some new ornament shaped chipboard and you can use to create a similar project. 

The kids in my Santa's Workshop were able to create and assemble these.  Great gift ideas!
