I didn't want us to have spent a month recording things we were thankful for and then to just throw our hard work and memories away after Thanksgiving passed! This way I figure if it's something we'd like to do each year, I can label the ornaments with the year and we can have them to look back on.
So I headed over to Michael's with a 40% off coupon, only to see that the balls were already 50% off - even better!
When I got home I rolled each of the papers up (to fit them better, and for some visual interest) and stuffed them in the ornament.
Then I wrote "Thanks 2011" on the ball, tied a ribbon to it and hung it on our tree! I love that it's an ornament that we've both had a hand in, normally all the handmade ornaments are all me, so this is a nice change of pace!
And here she sits all pretty-like in the tree!
I'm linking up with the holiday craft party at Centsational Girl - there's so many great ideas to check out!
