friday creative: holiday edition #8

with christmas just around the corner, today's project is multi-tasking! you can take a simple piece of chipboard & a photo and create an ornament, a gift tag, a napkin ring, a necklace, garland...anything you want!
-chipboard (or if you don't have easy access to chipboard, try plain ol'cardboard or tagboard, like a cereal box)
-paper trimmer (or craft knife & straight edge)
-hole punch
-twine or ribbon
-optional: eyelets & sandpaper

how to:
-cut chipboard to size of photo and adhere photo to chipboard with gluestick.
-punch holes as desired (to makes into an ornament or tag) and add eyelets if desired.
-sand edges as desired.
-now add any extras! like for my ornament i add a chipboard snowflake above my photo and a little jingle bell below, all held together with my new favorite red baker's twine.
-cute and easy!

happy friday!
xo, carly
p.s. today is the last of our holiday friday creatives. i hope you've had as much fun as i have!
