Wedding Invitation Ornament

  I already used my wedding veil as part of our Christmas decor, read about it here. But I really wanted to add a few more wedding details to the decor this year, after all is it our first Christmas as newlyweds!  Awhile back before the Mr. & I got married I pinned this image on pinterest.  In my attempts to actually do what I pin, I made my own version!  It is a super easy project, the hardest part was perfecting my bow.



Supplies:
wedding invitation, save the date or any special document!
clear ornament with removable top
pen
ribbon
paper cutter (or ruler and patience)
scissors


1. Start by grabbing your special document!  I used my wedding invitation as well as all the other supplies listed above
2.  I had backed my invitation on pink card stock, so I took that off (it was just adhered in a few spots, easy peasy to remove)

3.  Using your paper cutter cut your invitation in 1/4" strips.  Yes, I realize that If I cut them the other direction I would get actual words, do what ever floats your boat.  If you don't have a paper cutter use a ruler and mark  
4.  Wrap your strips around your pen and hold them for a few second and release, you will be left with a nice curl!
5.  Remove the top from the ornament and slide the curls in.  Post curl I decided to leave the pink out since it did not fit with our typical decor.
6.  Add a bow (I used left over ribbon from my bridesmaid's bouquets) and hang! 

I am thinking about adding a few more strips positioned in very visible areas, cut to highlight our wedding date, the church name ect.  

What do you think?  Any special documents to memorialize?
