scalloped soldered ornaments

I bought some scalloped copper foil tape and made some microscope slide ornaments with it today.

I chose pictures from my stash of old Christmas cards. (Thanks to everyone who has shared their cards with me! I so appreciate it!)

Making more ornaments.

Then, I put the pictures between glass and trimmed them.

After adding a touch of glitter to the pictures, I foiled them and began soldering.

I really like the extra flourish the scalloped foil gave the ornaments.

I finished each ornament with a dangle.

At our Open House, we will have a “Mission Tree” in the scrapbook room, decorated with ornaments I have made. As a thank you for donations to our church’s mission fund, guests may choose an ornament to take home with them. It will be nice to have something new to add to that this year.
