Christmas Card Ornaments

Monday, January 4th, 2016

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!

Marilynn’s is now live! is a site run my Marilynn Christensen and all about:

I am an independent entrepreneur and crafter/artist/photographer. This site was created to help me track my personal craft projects, possibly sell my products, promote my photography, and share my travel adventures.

I am open to contributing to a craft book on handcrafted jewelry which is my current craft endeavor.  You may contact me for any craft publishing, photography, or anything related to my works. I am looking forward to sharing online with others, to provide feedback, and to have a place online I can catalog my creations. I hope you enjoy the site and participate with me–looking to meet other like minded people to critique and improve my crafts.
