Reverse Confetti Crazy for Christmas-Memory Keeping

I am back with the third day of the Reverse Confetti Crazy for Christmas holiday showcase. I hope you have been following along the past two days. If not you can find all the posts linked up over on the Reverse Confetti Blog. There are lots of creative ways to use the wonderful RC products for parties and gift giving. 


Today we are focusing on memory keeping. I love to make ornaments with my boys school pictures. I don't know about you, but I always have a lot of extras of the wallet size, so this project is a great way to use those up.  I have done this in years past, so I like to make sure they are different from year to year. The fun new Gift Card Holder Tag Confetti Cut was the perfect size to frame up by handsome boys. 

Like with all group projects I create, I pick a color combo and stick with, changing it up for each ornament, but keeping it the same. It helps keep the look uniform. I used two colors of green with a tropical teal and white. Below each ornament I will list the products I used.



 Here is a close up of the cluster of dies I used. I really enjoy creating customized embellishments. The Alphabetical stamps fit so nicely on the Tag Me banner piece. 


My middle guy is up next. I used the same frame but dressed it up with polka dots and the holly leaves. 


Here is the close up of the holly leaves. How great is that touch of glitter?? I think it will look great on my tree.  


My final ornament is of my youngest. I used the skinnier stripes from So Stripey on his. He was super excited to see this tree on his ornament. I love how it turned out, too. 




Here is the group shot again. I love them, but then I might be biased, they are of my sweet boys.  I am blessed!


 You can recreate these easily. It really took me no time to make them. Once I picked my colors and had the general layout of each ornament, it came together quickly. These also make great gifts for the grand parents! 

Now join me to check out what some of my 
fellow DT members created for today's showcase. 
I know they will not disappoint.


Thanks so much for stopping by today. I always look forward to your kind words. Have a great day!
