Easy Craft Project


I saw or heard about this project some time ago, and decided to do it this year. It's a great way to recycle Christmas cards and enjoy the pictures on them again. And it's so easy little kids could even do it. You make ornaments out of the cards for the tree next year!

All you do is take a pair of scissors - pinking shears or fancy cutting scrapbook scissors - and cut out the picture on the card. I cut front and back so I had a sturdier ornament. Then put a string in between the layers to hang it by and glue them together with craft glue. Simple as that!

This is just a few of the ones I made. I also wrote on the back of each one who it was from. That was you can enjoy "hearing" from your friends again! So dig out the cards you got and put the kids or grandkids to work!

And this is just a picture of Mrs. Frick! Ronnie took it the other night practicing with the 4x power on the camera. Only I think this was 2x. Just about broke the camera!!

That's it for today. Take care and God Bless.
