Last year when I was inspired to make paper clip ice skate ornaments like my Gram did way back when, I forgot to make some for myself. I probably made at least 15 pair to give to family and friends, but didn't save any for myself. Oops!
This year is different. I sat down last night to make myself a pair... to place right by Gram's pair on the tree. I decided to mix it up and use red felt and clear, iridescent beads and sequins. I think I really like how they turned out.
I also wanted to thank all the visitors that have found my site because of these cute little skates. So many sites have posted links to the tutorial. Wow, I think Gram would be proud.
