Thank you for sharing this! I did this tonight and it was such a fun project! I glued another picture to the backside so if the ornament turned around there’s still be something to see ( don’t use hot glue for the backsides of the photos it makes it too stiff to roll up!) These instructions were simple, easy to follow, and very helpful! I even added my own twist by painting the bottom of my ornaments and adding snowflakes!
