One of my favorites for a gift… Take their wedding invitation, cut into strips and placed in a glass ball. Give to newlywed couple for their first Christmas. Would work for baby showers and other things too.

This also would work for sororities. Just paint their colors.

This is a paper napkin decopauged onto a glass ball. I just had a wonderful idea to use my wedding napkins so I can keep 1 or 2. 🙂

With 3 boys (4 counting my husband) I need a “manly” tree. I plan on making a themed tree eventually. I am doing it in woodsy stuff. Owls, deer, bears, etc. This acorn ornament would match well.

Christmas decorations…

Oh the Santa key.Used for when you don’t have a chimney or just because it’s a cute idea. Hang it on the front door on Christmas Eve.  You can google “Santa’s magic key poems” and a million will pop up. Here is a cute one:

It’s the night before Christmas & we’re excited as can be. 
We’re leaving this out for you…it’s a very special key.
You can shimmy down the chimney, or tiptoe through the door.
Just use this key we left for you to find cookies, milk, & more

Material covered poster board with embelishments and fringe added to your taste. Then just plop them over lamp bases or vases through out the house. I love these! It looks like something you would spend $80 on at Hobby Lobby.
