Christmas Ornaments-Keri Style!

I always love to see message board posts, and scrapbook layouts, of everyone's special Christmas tree ornaments. When I was putting the finishing touches on the main tree yesterday, I thought I would take a few pictures of my own to share with you! When everything is decorated and in order, I will post some more pics of the whole tree, etc. I made some of these ornaments as gifts a few years ago, keeping a set for myself of course, and some others were made since then. The angel is made out of wired ribbon, and one glass ball one is a floating ornament. You just stamp on a round cut out of transparency, roll up, and insert into the clear glass ball...the transparency gives the illusion of a floating image! DS and I just made the rolled paper ornaments this week. They are pretty self explainatory! Just roll your patterned paper strips into coils, and insert them into the clear ball! I especially love all the handpainted ones, my mom does her tree in all homemade ornaments, so she hangs her set faithfully every year! My favorite is the sled with the snowman face on it. So cute!! Happy Holidays!

Keri, this is a wonderful set of ornaments!! I love the glass balls, with inserted papers! But all the handpainting is fabulous too. Your tree must look gorgeous!

I hope you don't mind, but I "tagged" you. You can read about it on my blog.
