I have several of these little ornament albums hanging in my tree. Just slide the lid up the string to reveal the photo album inside. I add a little tag with the year, jounaling and some photos of some of the year's highlights. They're fun to look at each Christmas.
I also make a pink or blue version as a gift for "Baby's first Christmas. You can download the instructions here .
This project was a remake of a workshop wow I presented at a demo meeting 3 years ago when I first started as a demo. At the bottom of this post I added the samples I made for the meeting as well as the directions I drew up and scanned (yikes). My computer skills are still NOT great but I guess I've come farther than I thought. To personalize the ornament box, print it on a sheet of vellum and emboss it with embossing powder as soon as it comes out of the printer while the ink is still wet. With the new MDS this opens up a whole world of possiblilities.
