  1. It’s funny, as many times as I’ve used the Cut Styles window, I didn’t really notice that that was where you also can adjust settings to perforate your lines. Thanks for that VERY helpful tip! I feel less intimidated by projects that require “scoring” now.

    And I love saving Christmas cards, too. In fact, now I feel more justified in that hoarder tendency, knowing I can repurpose those cards into stunning ornaments like these. Thanks for the tips and tricks you shared – – adding this to my Christmas crafts to do list!

    Thanks for participating in this month’s Silhouette Challenge and for inspiring us with your creativity as always, Meredith!

  2. First of all, what a great name you have! ;-) Next….look out….you’ve just created a monster! I have loved those ornaments for some time, but never wanted to spend the time cutting and scoring…with your cut file, I don’t have to!!!! Thanks for the tips on putting them together, that’ll come in handy when I decide to make a million of these with my family later this season!

  3. These are so great! Thanks for sharing your cut file as well. I save my Christmas cards every year and I punch two holes in them and put them on binder rings by year. Then the next Christmas I put the books out on the table so I can look through them and enjoy them again. Or I make gift tags out of them. I think I will try my hand at these and use them to decorate a mini tree.

  4. Finally having a chance to go through all the Silhouette Challenge project inspiration– I’m like a [big] kid on Christmas but earlier!!

    Wow, re-purposing Christmas cards, who would have thought?! I love how you incorporated the pretty colors and fonts used from the cards to create such a unique ornament! The angles and lines… they hit the spot on the mathy side of my brain haha!

    Keep on being fabulous!!

  5. Very cute! Looks like it takes a lot of patience. But definitely something I want to try this season. We get a lot of Christmas cards and I always feel terrible throwing them out.

  6. I LOVE these! I have been exhibiting some hoarder tendencies with the Christmas cardstock lately, so these would be a great way to use some up!

  7. I really like the looks of these ornaments! I might struggle to make them correctly, so am bookmarking your page so I can come back for more instructions! Thanks for sharing this!

  8. My sisters, brother and I made these ornaments with my grandmother 45 years ago, I still have them, and I am so glad to see they are still being made!

I freely admit that I am not always the most creative or original person when it comes to crafting, decorating, organizing, cooking, etc...but I love being inspired by great ideas and putting my own spin on them! Look around, stay a while, and I hope through my *unoriginality* I can provide some inspiration to you, too!
