My sister and I exchange Christmas ornaments every year. We choose a theme and make something for each other. This year's theme is "Distressed".
With that in mind I thought of something that would be meaningful to my sister and be distressed at the same time.
I created this ornament using an old book. I used Distress Ink to color the edges of the pages and applied some glue and glitter although this doesn't show up very well in the photos.
I strung a ribbon and made a charm to indicate the year and attached that at the top.
My sister has always loved words so creating a distressed ornament out of an old book seemed like a perfect choice.
