Makeover Monday: 11/5

I have been searching for a new origami thing to make for Christmas.  I wanted something fairly quick and easy- something that I could make in the evenings when I'm tired and trying to unwind.  I found these cute wreath ornaments and directions and decided to give them a go.  They came out so sweet with my vintage gift the photo to see more detail.  I predict there will be more of these in my future! 

And, while I was using big huge labs for the "mosaic" up there, I played around with another photo thingy they have.  I think it's called frames.
It lets you turn any photo into a polaroid!
Or a stamp!  Isn't that the coolest?  Go have fun...but don't say I didn't warn you.  You may be there for hours. 
Happy Monday!  I am positively spinning from all of the organizing and creativity flowing around here.  I have two days off of mommy duty while Sophie is visiting her grandparents, and I will be using every moment wisely.  Stay tuned for more fun projects this week!

These are so wonderful! I have so much paper, I hope these are something I can do.

We just got our power back on late Friday night, so I'm playing catch up on things and then I hope I can get creative again!

Nice job, Jennie!!

Oh, Karen! I'm so sorry to hear you were without power for so long, but I'm thrilled for you that it's back. These are truly adorable ornaments, and there's no doubt that you can make them. I forgot to put it in the post, but I used 3" by 6" paper, and my wreaths came out to be just under
6" at their widest point.
