Holiday Crafts: Photo Ornaments
Posted by Maureen

Are you feeling crafty? It's time for some photo-related holiday crafts.

Margaret Cole used copies of her family photos as Christmas ornaments:

Here's how she did it:

Each photo is 3x4 inches. She printed each image on matte photo paper and to make it sturdy, used photo-safe glue to mount it onto heavy art paper from a 9x12 inch pad cut into 3x4 inch pieces.

There's more! On the back of each ornament is family tree information—birth, death and marriage data.

Margaret printed the information from her Ancestry.com family tree using the "publish" format.  She used either the "Person Report-Individual Report" or "Relationship Report-Family Group Sheet." She adjusted the print size to 3x4 inch format and glued it on.

She added a narrow ribbon to frame each photo and make a loop for hanging.

Thank you Margaret!

If you want to see more photo crafts check out my past columns, Photo Crafts From Our Readers and Photo Craft Directions, as well as Family Tree Magazine's Family History Crafts and Gifts Pinterest board.

You can also order some pretty neat photo-related gifts at Ancestry Games and sites like Snapfish.com.

I'd love to hear about your photo crafts. You can email me and tell me all about it.
