I don't think I've seen this idea before...Christmas cards that double as an ornament. I like it!
Yeah, a lot of photographers are doing them now. To get those specific ones you have to go through Miller's Lab and to get an "account" with them you have to have a business. (Also they're super expensive, like $2.00 a piece? or maybe a little under that).
But I feel like you could make them yourselves easily, if you had a cutter. I gave out ornaments last year with Rowan's footprint on them and it said "Merry Christmas 2009" I figured my extended family and friends don't want an ornament of my kid every year though .
shauna060708:If I had some kind of automatic cutter--a silhouette machine or something--I'd totally go the DIY route because that is such a cute idea! My peeps are getting Shutterfly cards this year anyway
Yeah, or even if you just had one of those circular cutters from Michael's. I bought a cheap one last year to make my ornaments and then had them laminated at Staples. You could just print out cheap prints if you wanted it to be a photo and them out that way.
So many Christmas crafts, so little time!
Tinyprints is doing these this year!
Not as cute, but certainly easy. :-)

LOVE the Tinyprints ones!! Still a bit expensive but I was bumming because I wanted to make the Miller's ones for my parents but they make you order at least 25. Now hopefully I can get 2 of these Tinyprints ones. Thanks for the link!!
IU_baby:I think it's a cute idea, but I don't know how they would last over time. I like to hang on to my ornaments.
This is what I'm thinking, too. I can't see anyone besides my parents or in-laws wanting to hang pictures of other people's families on their own Christmas trees!
I think they're adorable! Ditto about how long they last, but given that they're $2 and under I don't think they're intended to last long.
But still, I like them! I didn't know they were popular, but I'm also out of the loop on most cool things.
I saw someone do these on the photog board. Really cute. I wish I could make one but I'm not sure how to do it without it being flimsy/cheesy.
