My sister in law made me these gorgeous Christmas tree ornaments that have each of my kids’ birth announcements inside. I cried when I opened them, and I don’t cry! I love them. They are such a great gift idea for any momentous occasion – you can use a baby’s birth announcement or you could use a wedding announcement.
Many of you have asked how you make it so here is the step by step for you.
You will need:
Clear glass ornament
Optional: Paper cutter
Start with the announcement card and photo if one is not included in the announcement.
Establish what part of the announcement card is important to highlight and cut with a paper cutter or scissors.
Make the pieces different sizes to add interest to the final product. You won’t need to use all of the pieces.
Roll each piece around your finger to get the shape you want.
Use scissors for added curl and hold. Some pieces can be tightly curled while others can be more loose depending on what details you would like to highlight.
Place them inside the clear glass ornament.
Replace top and voila. A beautiful gift for the holidays.
One that will be cherished, year after year.
Wishing you and yours a magical holiday.
