photo memory ornaments

Daughter #2 and her friends are celebrating the holidays and the end of finals (woohoo!) with a secret Santa gift exchange and dinner out tonight. We thought it would be fun to have a little gift for all of the girls, so Daughter #1 joined us in making these photo keepsakes. They can be Christmas tree ornaments or decorations on a bulletin board.

We manipulated the photos on the computer (cropped them and made black and white or sepia) and then printed them out wallet size on cardstock. We trimmed them up and glued them to colored cardstock to make a frame.

I printed little stickers with the date and attached them to the back. We then laminated them in sheets, cut them out, punched holes and added ribbons.

There you go–a quick, inexpensive, personalized homemade gift that celebrates friendships and memories.
