Repurposed Birth Announcement: Christmas Ornament

So life got a little crazy after our twins were born and while I went to all the work of designing birth announcements I never actually sent them out. Whoops! But they still have sentimental value for me and we didn't have a baby's first Christmas ornament for them so I thought it would be fun to try and make a little ornament using their announcement.

Here's what I started with: 

and here is how they turned out:

I used a simple wood circle and mod podged the pieces I'd cut out from their announcement 
(side note: I would recommend having a couple copies of the announcement so you can try different layouts)

I really like how they turned out, mostly because they have sweet sentimental value for us. I really like that they are much more personal (in my opinion) than they typically "baby's first Christmas" ornaments I've seen. Plus, it was super easy to do. Win-Win!
