Orin's Block

Towards the end of the Christmas season, I decided I wanted to start a new decorating tradition next year. I thought it would be cute to frame a picture of our child/children from each Christmas and hang them as ornaments on a small tree. But then I found a better and cuter option for the same type of idea.

This is Orin's block from his first Christmas 2009. I used a 2 inch block, mod podge, scrapbooking paper, photo paper, ribbon, a screw hook, and my cricut machine to create the block. I think it turned out really cute. My plan is to make one for each child each year. And if more children come along, I might include a siblings picture on the block as well.

That's adorable! And such a good idea! I was trying to come up with something creative to start as a Christmas tradition, but me and my very UNcreative self didn't make it happen. Oh well...there's always next year I suppose.

By the way, I love your blog! Glad you found me in blog-land :)
