As for what I did, these are super simple ornaments to make. I cut the 6" scalloped oval on my cricut from the Storybook Cart. The base of the oranment is recycled cereal boxes which you can cut on the cricut without the deep cut blade ( pressure max, speed high, blade depth 6). Next, cut I cut my scalloped oval paper again, 6" on my cricut. I used my creative memories cutting system ( oval shape for a 3 1/2 by 5 photo) to cut the picture, and the photo mat. I embossed the photo mat and the backside of the the orament ( oval with typing) using French Script embossing folder. I added another small 2" oval on the front side that I also embossed with French Script then added some gold stickers for the "70 years". I added some pearl trim around the photo on the front side and typing on the backside to give it that little extra "pop" and a little white bow on small oval to top it off. Nice, elegant, and simple, and best of all cheap..... It cost us less than a $1.00 per person for a favor. I bought all the paper while it was on sale at my local Joann Fabrics last week when the paper was 6 for 96 cents, and some of it was on clearance for 10 cents per piece. The ribbon was 50 cents per spool and the peals were $1.00 each per container ( which I bought 6 of each, ribbon and peals, and only used 2 of each).
