One of my very favorite Holiday traditions is pulling out the box of ornaments from our storage room. Our Christmas tree is very eclectic-- many mix matched ornaments that represent an event, milestone, travel destination, or memory. It's almost as if each ornament has a story of it's own and I love nothing more than pulling out each and every ornament and "revisiting" those stories. In the end our tree hangs with ornaments that tell many stories and memories-- and it truly makes my heart happy.
I thought today I would share with you a simple layout I made that helps me tell the "story" of our ornaments. It will be great to look back at this throughout the year!! The front shows 11 ornament photos that are punched with 2" square punch and placed in a grid. I used the Jingle ABC stickers to number the ornaments. Instead of adhering the photos directly to the kraft cardstock, I actually trimmed a regular office supply file folder down to an 8.5" x 6.5" file and placed the photos on the front of the file folder.
I then covered the interior portion of the file folder with papers from the Memorandum line. This gave me plenty of room to journal the background and stories of each ornament. I LOVE that I have this written down and it can be passed down for a long time.
