Keepsake Ornament

 One of the special family traditions for the holidays that I truly love is making a keepsake ornament each year.  This tradition,  which started with my Grandmother, has been carried through my mother and has grown while in my era, continues into my daughters hands during these years.  

Today I'd like to share with you the ornament I made for 2020.

I had seen a Vintage Sled die by Memory Box that caught my eye.  The die is available in two sizes - since I wanted it for an ornament, I ordered the smaller size.  When it arrived, although exactly as described,  I was a bit taken back by just how small it was!  This was going to need a few additional pieces to be added to make it work. 

As with all of us - a pinch of this and a little of that - I shopped through my stash of odds and ends until I found the combination of tiny treasures that made up the vintage ornament I was looking for.

I found the little stockings at Hobby Lobby and added the gold or silver Stampin Up Doily, then the two part vintage sled, and  the miniature die cut green Christmas tree.  Inside I added a tag with a Christmas greeting and my name.  I made 38 of these.

I did make a second ornament this year, mostly for my grandchildren.  It's one I'm sure you probably saw on Facebook as the Angel to protect you from Covid. They really turned out cute also. 

I wanted to add a scripture verse to mine - I selected Deuteronomy 31:6

Everyone that I gave one of these angels to truly enjoyed them.
