Normally it is purchasing photo ornament frames and putting pictures in.
This year, we (my girls and I) decided to make homemade picture ornaments.
Prior to starting, I printed 2x3 pictures of the entire family on regular paper. I then cut squares of cardboard that were approximately 4x4.
Then we selected a scrapbook page for the back of our ornaments. here's a few that the girls picked:
We then used Mod Podge to adhere the scrapbook paper to the cardboard
Then we folded the paper over the cardboard and held the paper down until the Mod Podge was a little dry. Then we folded a ribbon and placed it on the paper, then placed the photo on top....securing them with the sticky stuff. Then we put a layer of Mod Podge on top.
I had cut out some circles and printed 2011 on regular paper. After the fronts were dry, we flipped them over and pasted the circles on the ornament and covered with a layer of Mod Podge.
You can certainly tell the finished products were 'manufactured' by a 5 and 7 year old girl...but that's what makes them so dang cute.
