Laminated Card Ornament


Impressively, mom handmade cards for her and dad's entire holiday card list this year. She's been learning a ton of stamping and papercraft techniques, and certainly put them to use with this card. I thought they were so pretty! (My favorite color is brown) I wanted to save it as an ornament on our tree, so to preserve it I laminated the card at Kinkos, first punching holes for ribbon. I used the inside of the card as the back of the ornament, and added the year it was made.

This is a great way to recycle your favorite greetings that you receive, and a great project for kids. If you do a photo card or enclose a snapshot in your greetings, wouldn't it be fun to see the progressive years on a tree or in a chain as a banner?

Personal, homemade ornaments are my favorites on any tree. I didn't get to put up a tree at my own home this year, but I know I'll be looking for this ornament when I do!
