For Christmas 2013, I signed up for the Reddit Christmas Card exchange. Often with the Reddit gift exchanges, folks don’t just exchange cards, they trade out little things in the cards that work as lovely surprises for their recipients. The person who sent me my card sent me a $15 itunes gift certificate and a lovely of Peanuts stickers. I was excited to receive them both.
In return, I sent my cards (I opted for two rematches for those that didn’t get their cards) out with crochet ornaments made from recycled old Christmas cards and some metallic thread crochet around the border. I had done crochet ornaments to go in my cards (see other posts) but these were a new design (see how to in another post) that I created specifically to be holiday ornaments. Different on each side, they went over well and hopefully will decorate their trees for many years to come.

If you like these, and would like to buy a couple for yourself, I do have a few posted in my etsy store for sale. For a small sample, check out the mini gallery below:
