An AMAZING Handmade Pine Cone Christmas Ornament

I found this amazing "how-to" for an adorable ribbon Christmas ornament...I haven't made it yet but as soon as I do, I will share a picture with all of you.
I'm also going to try using my Close To My Heart paper in place of the ribbon; I really think it would look beautiful and shouldn't be difficult to make. When I finish that project, I will also share a please come back to see my finished holiday ornaments. :-)

~ Wedding Favor Accordian Memory Albums ~ for Destination Wedding Guests

My daughter decided she wanted to have a destination wedding at Sandals in Nassau. It was AMAZING, to say the least. Twenty-four guests witnessed Rachel & Mike's beautiful beach wedding; it was an event of a lifetime....
I thought it would be a great idea to make a 6 x 6 accordian album for each of the attending couples. That way all of their beautiful pictures wouldn't stay on a data chip or in a box somewhere...moments in time displayed & able to revisit the gorgeous Bahama wedding event for years to come. There's even enough area for journaling special thoughts & memories. ENJOY......

All supplies used to make this project are Close To My Heart items except for the thin blue ribbon & the green/white flowers.
