I’m super excited to report that in less than 10 minutes for less than $10 (plus shipping), I am totally on trend with a flipping adorable ornament of my children. When Whitney told us that funky shapes are all the rage for holiday cards, I thought, “Bah! That just costs more in postage.” And now I’m so over-the-moon with these holiday decorations I want to tell the whole wide world.
I explained step-by-step how to make these ornaments last year as part of our Makin’ It crafty series for parents. Then and now, I used picmonkey.com to overlay the year to a favorite full-bleed photograph allowing me to travel back without a time machine to create photo ornaments from holidays’ past. I love these decorations so much that I want to make them for all our Christmases. But maybe I’ll get to that next year.
The big news is that you can go with round or a fancy shape. Everything else is just as easy (except finding the right photo, that’s still just as hard!).

Disclosure: I paid for this with my own $10 and by “make it in 10 minutes” I mean that my effort lasted that long, I received my finished product in a few days.
