A fun project using old Christmas cards

Still looking for ways to repurpose some of your old Christmas cards?  Or do you need a project to keep the kids or grandkids busy or even to calm yourself? 

Here's an idea I plan to try: Mason Jar Ring Shadowbox from Kimberly at Serendipity Refined.

I've made ornaments with mason jar lids before -- see the ornament at the top of the post -- but Kimberly's is several cuts (literally) above mine.  You might  say she has "refined" the basic idea.  She adds a number of delightful little extras, not the least of which is a circle of clear acetate or transparency film to hold everything in place and make it look even more shadowbox-like.  Head on over to Serendipity Refined to get the details.  This is a project which looks to me as if it could be addictive!


  1. Lovely idea - I also lik hoop ornaments

    1. They are nice, Lucie. My daughter gave me a hoop ornament she had purchased, but it would be so easy to make!
