Each Christmas, I need to figure out those gifts for friends/family that are small, affordable, and preferably handmade. I'd love to give out plates of cookies...but that would just be mean. Cookies and I do not get along. The bar is pretty low~ I shoot for 'almost edible'... Which doesn't make them especially coveted gifts:).
This Christmas, we decided on ornaments. For our small family gifts, we used a cute photo from earlier this year of the kids. Added a little sparkly snow. A hook. And for just a couple dollars, have a sweet ornament to give out.
For friends, if you don't want to add a photo of your kids or family, you could print out a favorite quote, Bible verse, or even use a colored digital scene instead.
Supplies you'll need:
large clear (plastic) ball ornament
iridescent/ sparkly snow
optional ribbon or snowflake to tie onto the top of the ornament
photo/ paper insert
Our ornament has a circumference of 12". The photo inside measures 2.9" x 8"... just for reference.
When you add the photo/ insert, roll it up gently and then push it into the opening at the top. It will unravel inside. You may need to help it a bit with a pencil, but it is pretty easy.
Happy Christmas crafting!
