Yesterday, I showed you my take on a Melted Snowman ornament. Today, we are heading in a different direction.
It is all about what Christmas means… in a single word.
I started out by coming up with words that “mean” Christmas to me. Once I put pen to paper, I came up with many. Too many. I only needed twelve.
Here are the twelve that made the cut (no pun intended) -
I wanted a natural look so I chose Kraft paper. (You may have realized by now that I love simple, brown paper.)
Anyhoo, I typed my word out like so:
I used Joyful Juliana font, size 20 and printed it on the back as well. That is key.
In order to get it to match up on the back, be sure to align your words the same distance from the top-bottom and left-right margins so that it is a mirror image when you flip the paper over to print.
It is important to do this step so that when the little pieces flip over inside the ornament, there are no blanks!
I used my paper cutter to cut the pieces to size and just slipped them in basic clear, glass ornaments that you can find at the craft store.
ONE single word per ornament – not mixed!
Just a another fun way to decorate your tree.
Even with the brown Kraft paper, they still have beauty.
