Photo Frame Christmas Ornaments

Hello We R Memory Keepers friends and fans, Becki here to share a fun Christmas ornament idea with you using two of my favorite tools that work perfectly together–the Frame Punch Board and the Square Punch Board!

Ornaments with photos are my favorite ornaments. This year, I decided to make ornaments for my brother and his wife. Earlier this Fall I took photos of my nieces and nephews for their family Christmas card. I LOVE how the photos turned out and I knew they would make the perfect ornaments. I started by printing 3×3 photos of each of the kids. ( You can also trim down a 4×6 photo to 3×3.)

After the photos were printed, it was time to put my square punch board and the frame punch board to work. I used the Square Punch Board to punch perfect 3” squares. This tool makes squares and rectangles perfectly every time. When the 3” squares were punched, I simply made them into frames with the Frame Punch Board.

Using dimensional adhesive I adhered the frames on top of the photos. I wanted to keep the photos the main focus of these ornaments so I kept embellishments to a minimum. All of the embellishments and patterned papers I used are from the Fa La La collection from Crate Paper. I love the traditional feel of this collection mixed with a few modern colors of pink and teal. This collection complimented my photos perfectly!

These ornaments make the perfect gift idea! I know my brother and his family will love them for years to come. These photo ornaments would be a perfect gift idea for grandparents too! I know my parents would love to have photos of all the grand kids on their Christmas tree. They’re so easy to create they’re perfect for last minute gifts as well. I hope these Christmas ornaments have inspired you to create some of your own with the square punch board and the frame punch board. Merry Christmas!!
