OH man I haven't been here (Craftster) for months! I have so much to catch up on. It's been a crazy few months and I wanted to share these before Christmas but alas I did not. There's just a lot happening in my life but here it goes!

Every year I make ornaments for my Christmas cards, it's a bit of a challenge because they have to be flat. I've done this for 3 or 4 years now and the last few years I've done felt but this year I wanted to do something different.

So this year I found these wooden discs in my stash and thought that they would make really cute ornaments! So I painted them all, drilled holes, cut scrapbook papers into circles, mod podged them on, added ribbon to hang and viola!





I had over 135 Cards this year! That's a lot of ornaments, on top of that I made ornaments for gifts for everyone we would see over the holidays which I will post in a separate topic Smiley

OH and funny story I thought these would be flat enough but they were not so all my cards were sent back to me and I had to add 20 cents to each card. So I spent 30 min. in the post office just waiting to buy 10 cent stamps and then had to add two stamps to each card and re-mail them. So I'll find something new for next year Cheesy

Oh and I did add glitter accents and glitter overlays to a few of them Cheesy

Thanks!

Okay so once again I am completely redoing my pictures. Got tired of photobucket, the only reason I used it was for here so I decided I will just use Craftster's photo uploader. So while I am switching over my photo links will be broken. Message me if there is a post you would like the pics for.

ouch! Flatness counts now with the post office--the envelope has to fit through their machines!

But, anyway, I think they are very cute and I am sure that everyone who received them loved them!  I did a similar thing except I just glued two pieces of paper back to back and the used the ornaments as part of my card design (I cut a circle in each card so that the ornament would fit flat Wink )...

Your friends and family must love getting mail from you with such a nice surprise extra each year!

oh--and wow for the quantity you made--wow!

Those are a really cute alternative to cards!  Sorry they weren't flat enough for the post office.

That is such a cool idea! I have a 1" button machine with circle punch so I usually turn old Christmas cards into gift tags, but this would be a nice change!
