Turn your kid's art into a Christmas tree decoration

Kid art becomes Christmas tree decoration e_chendo has a fantastic idea for putting some of that kid art to good seasonal use on the Christmas tree:

After taking photos to preserve our toddler's daycare artwork, I started repurposing them into Christmas tree ornaments. I cut the 8.5x11 papers into 8 strips and stapled each strip into a loop and made a chain of loops. I considered looping them all together into a giant chain, but found that hanging each piece separately works nicely--just hang the first and last loop on the tree.

Perfect display...and a lovely way involve little ones in decorating the tree.
