Homemade Keepsake Ornaments  

Posted by: Julie


I'm linking to Today's Creative Blog 

Today I thought I would share the Christmas ornaments
I made for my mom last year.

First, I had each child sit very straight on a chair,
making sure the girls hair was out of their face,
and took a picture of their profile.

I printed it onto card stock and cut them out.

Next I put the cut-out profile picture onto green scrapbook paper
and traced each picture then cut them out.

I purchased round cardboard ornaments from Michael's and painted them red, then I used Mod Podge to secure the profile to the ornament.

I used the same green paper as the profile to print the children's names and the year. I cut it out and again used Mod Podge to secure it to the ornament.

I tide a simple little ribbon to the top of the ornament.

Now, I need to make some for MY tree!
