Christmas Card Ornaments

I saw this idea for re-purposing Christmas cards—cut the cards into 1/2″ strips (I used the front of the card only).  I modified the original method by using an 18 gauge gold brass wire down through the center and a crimp to secure the strips against the beads at the top and bottom.  These are a little trickier than you would think–somewhat time consuming since I was developing my own method as I went.  The original idea didn’t use beads to embellish–but it’s a good way to use up the odds and ends from stock and do I ever have lots of that!
