A Little Love Never Hurts

I made a little love ornament to show how you can personalize these mirror ornaments from the craft store. My niece got married this year and I think it's always a nice idea to gift newlyweds with an ornament for their tree. We received two for our wedding long ago in a galaxy far, far away...ok, it was Ohio in 1990 but that's 25 years ago, so that counts! And yep, we still hang them on the tree.

The word love is a rub-on from Heidi Swapp that is in a foil kit, so it's adhesive. I added glitter instead. I know you're surprised. The ribbon is aqua seam binding that you can buy for 25 cents a yard. I just adhered it in a ruffle.

For the back, I printed their names and wedding date on a piece of cardstock and die cut with a Spellbinders die. It covers up the ruffle and adhesive nicely. You could always use a piece of fabric if you want to use fabric markers to personalize.

Quick and easy and inexpensive...all things I like in a project!

Happy Monday!
