Clip to ScrapBook #3

I do this craft and it comes out great.

Michael's sells clear balls that come apart in the middle. Using the half circle as a guide trace around the photo and cut it out.
Push the photo in the half circle just enough that it stays. In the other half, put red paper shred. I use red metallic shred, but any will do. Close the two halves together. On the back use a gold paint pen to write the kids' names and the year. Hot glue a pretty ribbon around the seam of the ball where it is connected. Add a ribbon to hang it with. I have 5th graders and they do everything except the hot glue.

They are so cute. It can be costly, though. I have an activity fee that I can use to purchase the materials. It comes to about $50.00 and I have 23 kids.

Also, if you look for the balls in Michael's, they are in the art department. Hard to find!
