I made photo magnets for the family with photos of Maggie and my neice. They turned out great.

I used the end lids off frozen juice containers. Trimmed photos to fit the inside. Used tape glue (or you could use double sided tape) to stick them onto the part of the lid with the lip facing outward. Bought the magnets at Walmart, peeled and stuck them on the back, and voila. They come out just about the size of a button you would wear. Got the idea from Maggie's school. They made one for Father's Day.

You could modge podge the front of the photo so that it seals it all in, but I didn't bother. I was pretty happy to find the time to do as much as I did!

Love your ideas ladies. Very cute.

I do the photo calender every year for the parents. It is so much work. I don't enjoy doing it anymore but they all expect it now. Ha! I started something.

I was thinking of doing a photo coffee mug this year (in addition to the calenders). I also made a handprint stepping stone for the grandparents. The stone turned out so nice I don't want to give it away

I think I will try the handprint ornament.
