Vintage Mirror Ornaments

There is a 99c store in my area that has a HUGE craft section filled with tons of odds and ends.  Everything from tiny mirrors to funky colorful beads and wood shapes ready for painting & staining.  I finally grabbed some tiny mirrors last year but have been holding on to them for the perfect craft, and when Christmas rolled around I was ready!  Something about the book pages mixed with the light blue & gold remind me of Francois Boucher, the French Rococo painter.  They also feel like they belong on a tree in the late Victorian era, too.  The best part of these ornaments is that they're made from cardboard!  Yup, that's right!  Use what you have, my crafty friends, and don't forget to 
 Make Your Mark!
 One of these would make the perfect gift!
Cheap pearl trim mixed with sparkly cup chain makes a great combo!

Watch how to make them here!
Print on standard copy paper and don't forget to mark your notches!

That's  me at your front door singing carols!  Happy Christmas!
