These are horribly difficult to properly photograph, but I figured, since I haven't seen anyone else post them, I would give it a shot (I've never posted anything before, other than swaps).



Extremely easy to make, just buy the clear glass ornaments, print a picture out on transparency paper, cut it to fit the ornament, curl it up and slide it in.  I once read somewhere that they recommend glitter, but as you can see from the ornament in the rear, it's not the best idea - too much static makes it cling to everything and it's hard to make out the photo, otherwise the other 2 photos are very vivid IRL.

There's this awesome website full of copyright-free images, they're all vintage and just beautiful. I'm going to print out some deer, squirrels and hedgehogs on cardstock and set up a little winter tableau thingie...http://etc.usf.edu/clipart/44700/44736/44736_deer.htm

Her dirty paws and furry coat,
She ran down the forest slope.
The forest of talking trees,
They used to sing about the birds and the bees.
The bees had declared a war,
The sky wasn't big enough for them all.

I wonder if you could use vellum scrapbook paper. That's about the same thing right? I know you can print words but I wonder if pictures show up?

Great idea on thin paper because I made one for a friend like that but with glossy printer paper and let's just say it was a pain trying to get it in the hole  Wink

I love all of the ideas so far btw  Smiley

You are my sweetest downfall. I loved you first, I loved you first. Beneath the sheets of paper lies my truth.

You can usually find transparency paper at most office supplies stores.

Vellum works just fine in printing out photos.

here is one I just made .
I wrapped twine around a ballon and used mod podge glue to stiffen it.  then  cut the hole.  I used a nativity scene from the dollar tree and repurposed it. hind sight I should have added some lights.  I also got the ribbon from the dollar tree.

anyway  whatcha think
