One of our traditions during the holidays is to make each other an ornament. Dave started this on our very first Christmas in 2005 when we were dating. I blogged about this tradition last year.
This year I used my Silhouette Portrait to cut cardstock for my Christmas ornament.
I then painted the white ones with glitter paint. I thought about cutting them and making them 3-D but they’d be hard to store. Anyway, I glued two together, added a little bling, and added a hanger. I also make him a card every year and this one was pretty plain and simple using one of the cutouts.
Here it is hanging on the tree with some of our past ornaments.
Now to Dave’s ornament. It’s funny because he’ll start asking me about supplies when he is planning his Christmas ornament. Like this year he asked me about felt, specifically different colors of green felt. I gave him the piece I had and off he went to Joann’s. I tried to imagine what he’d come up with this year (as I do every year), but it was a surprise and ohh, so cute.
This is such a fun tradition. We also sign the back with the year. I love that our little mantle tree contains all of our ornaments from past years.
