A Grandma Mistletoe Ball

This ornament is beautiful and also can tell the stories of a special events from Christmas long ago. Give it as a gift or hang in your home so that you can reflect back on Christmas past. This one is from the annual family parent held at my in laws when the story is read from the Bible and the kids dress and act out the parts. Four sections hold photos and the fifth section has the journaling.

Let’s get started. Please excuse the blurry photo and the glare because of the folds it was very difficult to shoot. Also the magnets that hold down the pieces in many of the photos appear in the photos. It just made it easier to shoot and hopefully make it easier to understand.

Step one cut 5 circles all the same size. I suggest that you cut them anywhere between 4 and 6 inches. These are 5 ½ inches. I cut mine from three different pieces of the Rusty Pickle White Christmas line.
