  15. Beautiful cards, my hopes for Christmas cards may also turn into early Happy New Year Cards. The use of the buttons for ornaments was a wonderful idea. I would have never thought of doing that. How did your create your ornament?

  18. Thank you all for stopping by. Not only to look, but to leave some positive feedback. I really appreciate it!

    @ Tonya - I don't have a clue what the name of the punch is. I'll be able to tell you Sunday after my trip to Ms. It is a PATP one though.

    @ Takisha - I'll send you the ornament details. Wait, you may have inspired me to do a video.

  34. Thanks again everyone for leaving me some love. You all are almost frightening me about doing these ornaments with the class. LOL!! I"m actually going to put the wax in before taking them to school, so all they have to do is shake it around. Going to out a cotton ball at the top so they can swish it around easily.
