Guest Project — Make a Sentimental Christmas Ornament

My sister got married about six months ago and, as an early Christmas present, I decided to make her a special 
wedding ornament.
The process was simple and I’m super excited to share the tutorial with everyone!

Start with a glass ornament, scissors and your paper of choice–I used my sister’s wedding invitation.
I then cut the paper into strips.
I rolled the strips around my finger to create little curly-ques and placed them inside the ornament.
I love how the cream colored paper looks inside the ornament–almost vintage-like.
I’m super happy with the outcome!
What a sweet and sentimental ornament.
I love idea — and it’s something that you could make for anyone in your life and fill with things that are special to them!!

    Hey, March 6th is my bday! I love this idea! Oh, and those croissants are scrumptious! :)

  2. I love this idea, I actually made "time capsule" ornaments with my kids today. We put special notes
    inside that they will get to take with them when they get their grown up house. =)

    What a great idea…I have a brand new niece and I think using her birth stats would be a great gift for my sister! Thanks for the inspiration.

  9. Great idea! I'm very much a "saver." I'll save movie stubs and playbills, etc. This might just be the thing to do with them!

    Such a cute idea! I've filled glass ornaments with colored paper before, but I never thought of putting something with writing. This would be really cute with letters to Santa in them!
