Ornaments we made

I wish the lighting was better, but the way the strips are, the light makes shadows that darken it.  They really look so much prettier in person.  Kevin made 8 of these all in different color combinations.
 Once again he did the cutting and then the folding.  I pretty much pinned most of them on but he handed them to me and then I hot glued the ribbons and the bell to it.  I wish I could show you all of them but since he has handed them out already I couldn't get the pics before they took them home.  Once again this item as well had never been made by us before so I don't think we did to bad of a job.
I also mentor a third grade boy and last week we made one for his mother for Christmas.  I didn't have my camera because I had loaned it to my son when he went on his hunting trip and have yet to get it back ..I actually convinced my DH to advance me one Christmas gift so that I could take these pictures.  LOL    It's another Fuji Camera..I really like their product.

We couldn't find a coordinating paper to go with this one so we just used the same pattern all the way ..I still think it turned out great.  Of course the bow is against the  tree instead of in the  Memo to self:  Make sure everything is as you want it before you press that button!!  :)
