Upcycled Christmas Card and Ribbon Roll Ornaments

This craft is not only a pretty way to upcycle used Christmas cards, but also a way to upcycle cardboard ribbon rolls that are left over from wrapping packages. Tinsel garland was added to give the ornaments an extra sparkly effect and at the same time to hide the middle section of the roll. You can add more sparkle if you like by using dimensional paint and glitter on the images.
