How to make a photo wreath 3

Earlier:
Part 1      Part 2
After cutting out all photos (glued on black card stock), take the whole mess to the office-supply store and have them laminate the photos in one continuous lamination. They have to carefully feed the photos in several wide. If done correctly, you will have a huge sheet of preserved photos that have enough room around them for the lamination to stick. You don't want any parts
that are going to come apart.

Next cut out each laminated picture. On back, place a
gold foil sticker and write the year. Punch a small hole
and insert a Christmas ornament hook in the hole.
I love my photo wreath. It's interesting
and brings back so many great memories.
I think I'm going to make a second photo
wreath, this one devoted to the grandchildren. 
Note: Store your photo wreath in a closet inside the house.
You don't want humidity to undo all your loving work.

This ends this series. Let me know what you think!
