I work at a local animal shelter - with dog trainers, in particular. I had no money for Christmas gifts this year, so I decided I was going to make gifts. And I couldn't buy supplies, either. I had to use stuff on-hand.
I came up with photo ornaments. They are sort of along the "Acordion Balls" ornaments on this page: Recycle and Reuse Christmas Greeting Cards
I used foil wrapping paper that I had in my stash, printed and cropped photos of them with their dogs (or just their dogs if I didn't have a good portrait of them), used old Christmas cards as cardstock bases, and some beads and sequins in my stash. Oh, and some gold sequin glue to add some sparkle.
I wish I had used a different glue - tacky glue doesn't really adhere to foil wrapping paper. They all loved their ornaments, so I guess it was a success, but I don't expect they'll last more than a year or two. We'll see. Anyway, here are the pics:
The front, with photos of the doggies:
The backs - you can see how they sort of look three-dimensional:
And for the one co-worker who hasn't adopted a dog yet (soon - it's only a matter of time!), I made her a quilled snowflake, which I already posted about here:
