Slide Ornaments for Your Christmas Tree
For over 50 years my family has recorded their favorite family memories on photo slides that can only be viewed with a slide projector. As much as I love gathering the family together for a slide show I was thrilled when Uncle Steven came up with a brilliant idea for making slide ornaments for our Christmas tree. This is family tradtition we look forward to every year.
Slide ornaments are easy and inexpensive to make. There is quite a bit of cutting, folding and taping involved but the most difficult part of making slide ornaments is choosing the family photo slides you want to display on your tree.
It is fun to use slides from past Christmases, family reunions, parties or especially embarrassing for children and fun for parents is to use pictures of children when they were small. We enjoy reliving favorite family memories every year when we decorate our Christmas tree.
Display with white or clear lights. Colored lights will reflect their color through your slide and tint your photo.Store slide ornaments in a shirt box for next year’s tree. Slide ornaments will be long lasting if you use a good quality cardstock. See familyreunionhelper.com for information on gloss coated cardstock.
