DIY Keepsake Ornament

I literally just finished this project and couldn’t wait to show it off! For Christmas, Jake and I received an empty photo ornament in our stocking from Jake’s mom with specific instructions to put a wedding picture in it. I took down Christmas decorations from our apartment yesterday, but was waiting to put a picture in the ornament before storing it all away to be forgotten until next year. Check it out!

Sorry for the crappy lighting – it gets dark so early here, and there is not a great place to take photos in the apartment. I used my newly acquired digital scrapbooking skills to put this baby together with some romantic papers and elements. Then I added some paper punches inside the ornament to mimic snow and for a little whimsy. I love the way it turned out!
