I think it's nice to give my co-workers a little something at Christmas. That being said, not everyone exchanges gifts, so it's important this it's something relatively inexpensive and possibly handmade. I find that makes the receipient more comfortable in receiving the gift if they aren't reciprocating. I was at the Dollar Tree this week and came up with a very inexpensive, quick and easy gift.
Here's what you need:
DYMO Organizer Xpress Handheld Embossing Label Maker. Believe it or not, I had this on hand. I love making labels! It's under $10 and you'll use it more than you'd think! You will also need the Label Tape. The tape is less than $8 and will last a long time.
Pretty ribbon (optional). The Dollar Tree ornaments do come with a little silver string, but I thought adding a pretty ribbon really elevated the ornament.
I figure you'll know where I'm going with this, so I won't bore you (or me) with the step by step photo tutorial.
All you need to do is take the topper/hanger off the ornament.
Gingerly, pour in the sequins or glitter.
Put the topper back on.
Think of a few holiday sayings...
-Merry and Bright
-Bit of Sparkle
-Joy to the World
-Let It Snow
-Peace on Earth
Create the label with label maker and stick on the ornament.
Happy Crafting and Giving!!
