Christmas Ornament Time Capsule. I love Christmas ornaments that have meaning and especially those that bring back memories from years past. Starting this year I plan to make an ornament time capsule of the Christmas Season. It's something easy to make right after Christmas is over, pack it up and enjoy it the next year & many to follow. You could have fun with it and do it a variety of ways. I chose to use glue, glitter & notebook paper this time around, I'm sure it will change each year.
