I want to make one of these every year! Write down things that happened within the year on strips of paper, then curl them with the blade of a pair of scissors. Create a cute, dainty tag with the year on it and hang it on your tree. Make a new one each year to remind yourself of all the wonderful things that have happened in your life!
A Year of Memories Ornament
- a clear glass ornament
- a pair of scissors
- a blank sheet of white paper (or whatever color you'd like to use)
- some ribbon
- a small tag with string
- something to decorate tag with
- glue (I used E6000)
Step 1: Cut strips of paper from blank sheet. Write memories from the year on each of them. I wrote some of the bigger things as well as some little, sillier things.
Step 2: Curl strips using blade of scissors by pulling strips between finger and blade in a quick motion. Remove metal top from ornament and feed strips into opening on the top.
Step 3: Replace top and tie ribbon around metal piece (I glued mine on to make it easier to tie). Tie bow in ribbon.
Step 4: Attach decorations to tag using glue and tie tag around metal top under the bow. Repeat once a year =)
