Memory Photo Xmas Decorations

I got the idea for these personalised christmas decorations from a post that I made for Mothers day,  fabric photographic memory albums, you can see the tutorial here

Cut some 10cm squares, 2 of each style of fabricxmas decorations 001For the photographs I used Iron on fabric transfer paper, don’t forget to flip your photo’s when you are printing them off so that when you iron them onto the fabric they are the right way around, iron them onto some plain white fabric.

xmas decorations 009Next I sandwiched a piece of heavier weight wdding between both pieces of fabric

xmas decorations 012Put a piece of ribbon in the top so that you can hang it on the tree

xmas decorations 013They are so quick and easy to make, I made these 4 in half an hour! I think I will be making them for every single member of my family, I’m sure I can find plenty of embarrassing Xmas photos of them all!
