Christmas Card Ornament
small amount of any color 4 ply worsted weight yarn
SIZE: Varies depending on size of card.
Cut two Christmas cards into either squares or circles of the same size. Put the two pieces back to back (make sure to match the tops of the 2 cards so that one side's picture won't end up sideways or upside down). Using a hole punch, punch holes around the edge of the cards.
For round cards: Join yarn to a hole on the top right side of the card, ch 2, *sc in next hole, ch 1*, repeat * around , join with sl st to beg. ch 1, sl st over to the middle of the card, ch 10, and join in beg. ch (for loop).
For square cards: Follow same instructions as above but make sc, ch 1, sc in corner holes.
VARIATIONS: If you want to make another round around the outside of the card, just sc (or can use hdc or dc) in each st around and then make the ch 10 loop after that. Try a different combination of stitches and you can make each ornament look a little different.
The square ornament shown above has just one round of sc, ch 1.
The round ornament shown above has a second round of hdc around.
