It's the Friday before Christmas...

I made some ornaments to "gift" to some my colleagues with.

How they were made:

I used nice printouts of some of my holiday images (the color-blocked trees). I pasted them (using glue stick and my bone folder with pressure) to hard-board. The opposite side, not shown, has a red "ribbon" illustration on a white background, that allows for plenty of room to write a message. Then I cut them into squares with a paper cutter. After that, I punched holes in them with a heavy duty paper-hole puncher (Swinfgline makes a good one; available at Staples). Then I used hemp yarn to make pretty bows to tie the squares together.
That's the recipe!!

If I'd had more time, I'd have sealed them with acrylic gloss coating, and embellished them with a little glitter. But these worked out nice as is!!

Hope you enjoy!! Happy Holidays!
