This is a super easy craft, but I still wanted to upload. I knew I wanted to give my coworkers some kind of crafted gift. My first idea was to bake something for them but two are vegetarians (not sure how strict and what rules each goes by), one eats very healthy, and the others don't have preferences so I didn't want to bake anything that the veggies wouldn't eat, etc. Too much stress! I only work with five other people; you'd think it would be easy! Smiley

Sooo, instead, I decided to get eat of them personalized, retractable Sharpies (I work in a Starbucks licensed store). Here's what I came up with!

And the tools, I used - Paint Sharpies!

Don't worry, I made one for me too. Wink

I was just on Etsy searching for patterns myself and came across one that reminded me of your post:


The bottom is a little fuller, but the top seems very similar. Smiley

Those are great.  What kind of paper do you print the photo on?

I got them printed from Walgreens. There is an option for wallet sized picture so that is what I ordered. I originally wanted to decopage the pictures on the ornaments themselves, but the pictures were two thick to lay on the ornaments in order to decopage them (it would probably work if you printed in color on regular paper). Instead, I put the picture on a piece of colored scrapbooking paper, glued it and covered it with Modge Podge to keep up with the glossy theme. Plus with Modge Podge, it'll hold up better and longer when stored. When it dried, I cut it out then taped it on the ornament with that scrapbooking orange, tacky tape you can buy at craft stores.

Thank you all for the kind comments! Smiley I think they will like them.

These are fabulous! I am a big ornament person - it is so nice to think of each person when you place it on the tree. I have made ornaments cross stitched with family member's names. Then I got lazy and just bought inexpensive wooden ornaments and wrote their names on with a sharpie. I like this idea even better than what I have been doing. What type of ornament did you use?


I initially wanted to find some kind of cardboard-y/paper-ish balls that were meant to be decorated as ornaments, but I only found flat ones. I had it set in my mind to make round ones, haha. So instead I found a 6-pack of foam balls (they have a picture of an ornament on the front). I stabbed a hole through the center and put floral wire through it so I could tie a ribbon. I had multiple ideas on how the do it, but I can't find my hot glue gun so I improvised this way. I then used Modge Podge to attach Christmas themed tissue paper and decorated with the picture. It was fun but time consuming as I don't have the extra money to buy all the craft supplies to make life easier. Ha! Cheesy

I'm strapped for cash this Christmas so I am only able to buy a select few people gifts. So this year I decided to make a keepsake type ornament for my family and my boyfriend's family. I am still in the process of making them, but I wanted to post the two I have made so far.

This one is for my boyfriend's parents - the picture is of their kids (my boyfriend is the baby in the picture).

This is for my boyfriend's aunt and uncle - it is their daughter.

I've had to improvise a lot when making these, and they took a lot longer than I initially thought. I just wanted to share and maybe inspire someone to make a Christmas ornamnet gift of their own. If there are any questions or suggestions, let me know! Smiley
