DIY Yearly Christmas Post Card Ornament


Are you all done taking down your Christmas decor... I'm slowly starting on mine. I sure am going to miss the twinkle lights all around the house :(

I hate to admit this, but I have kept all the Christmas cards since we have been married... That's 14 years worth! I swear I'm not a hoarder, craft supplies don't count!  I just hate to throw them out only because so many of them are personal picture greeting cards. There is something wrong about throwing other peoples picture away! Or is that just me! So finally I figured out what to do with them all. I've seen many of these ornaments all over Pinterest and figured this would be the perfect way to save those picture greeting cards for many years to come.


Today I will share with you a pictorial of how I made my ornament with the greeting cards we received this year.


I used a 2.5 inch diameter circle punch for my circle cut outs.




I used my Scotch-Advanced-Tape-Glider to glue the ornament together. Regular white glue was taking too long to dry, so I wiped it off. Worked way easier with the double sided tape.



Now I need to find time to make another 13 years worth... Wish me luck, hopefully I'll be done by next Christmas! Thanks for stopping by :)

Happy Crafting!
