A while ago, I was cruising blogland in my 69 vintage corve......wait a minute, that
was my computer....Oh yah different story.
Anyways, I came across an awesome idea but I can't remember where I saw it. If anyone knows this post, please let me know as I will credit them for the idea. I was sorting through some cards and I came across a wedding invitation from one of my dearest friends' son. I didn't want to throw it out and I had remembered seeing this idea of cutting pages from a book (I think it was a music book) and putting it in a clear ornament ball. This is my version.
I cut up the invitation and folded each strip of paper like an accordion. If you had one of those crinkle gadgets that would be much faster.
I stuffed the crinkled invitation into the bulb.
Next step, I grabbed my glitter glue and wrote "Our 1st Christmas 2011" on the bulb in silver. I took the gold glitter glue and dotted the top of the bulb and let dry. A few hours later I turned the bulb over and did the bottom.
I made a bow from wire ribbon for the top and got some gold thread and made a loop to hang it from.
Now I don't feel bad that the invitation went into the garbage and was forgotten and they get a first Christmas ornament.
