How to Make A Paper Photo Ornament :: Craft Tutorial

Michaels_christmas_0041_1

Hello friends! I hope you had a lovely long weekend! We spent the weekend up at our house in the pines with a nice mix of work and relaxation! It is coming together beautifully and I can't wait to finish the decorating so I can have photos taken to show you the renovation. I absolutely love being up there because everything is brand new and exactly the style I am so into right now. I come home and want to organize and redecorate my whole house. (or maybe it's time for a new one, again?) Ha! Anyway, back to Dream Tree decorating! In case you missed it, I participated in the Michaels Dream Tree Challenge this year and went with a "Let It Snow" white and silver tree. We styled and photographed it in my home office and I just can't bring myself to take it down. It's so pretty and gets me in the spirit of the holidays, which are right around the corner! Friday I shared the tutorial for How to Make a Christmas Tree Garland and today I am back with another tutorial to show you how to make these easy paper photo ornaments!
