I’m serving in our ward nursery and we wanted to make a cute gift that the kids could give their parents for Christmas. My daughter just happens to be one of our cute nursery kids. The ornament turned out so cute that I just had to share them with you.
First this is the front with the darling picture of my daughter. Thanks to technology it was easy to take pictures of the kids with my phone each week. Then I used My Digital Studio to get them the perfect size and to change them all to sepia to match the ornaments better.
I used the scallop circle die to cut out a piece of card board (Of course I had plenty from the back of our great products. I save all of them they are so great for many projects.) I covered the chipboard with a piece of Old Olive paper cut out with the scallop circle die and embossed with the pedals of plenty embossing folder. The chocolate chip background and the picture were cut out using the circle thinlits. I finished it off with the fun thinlit Merry. (Just a tip if you use wax paper. Wax side towards the paper. The paper will come out nice and easy without tearing.)
This is the cute back side. We had each child stamp their hand print and we added a name a date. I even made a few with pictures of Jesus in case we had a few visitors. (So glad I did since we had 2.) The parents loved them. I love how it looks I my tree.
I finished it off by making custom sized envelopes with our Envelope punch board. We had the kids color them to make them extra special. Then we tied them shut with a quick ribbon and added a tag. I love love love the new scalloped tag topper punch in the occasions mini. It made it so easy to add Christmas tags to these and all my Christmas presents. (Just a note the stamp set is an old Christmas tag set the I love to use every year. It makes tags so easy and I never run out.)
Personally I love having ornament that are pictures of my kids. It’s so fun to get them out as see them every year. Hopefully you are inspired to make a cute ornament for your tree next year using some of our great products mixed with your imagination.
