Wedding Invitation Ornament

Ages ago I saw a glass ornament filled with curlicued slivers of a wedding invitation. I bought glass ornaments last year expressly for this purpose, but I just now made mine this year. And I love it!

I used all the elements of our invitation (and oh, how well I remember stuffing them into envelopes!). I used my paper slicer to get the cuts even.

Instead of rolling them, I just curled them slightly, and then I tied some beautiful velvet ribbon around the top (Eric’s mom sent it to me!). I am a big fan of the striped effect. I love having this on the tree–even just holding the invitation in my hand reminded me of all the magic of that day, and I know that feeling will only grow as time goes on.
