A couple of years ago I scanned in some pictures of our boys during their younger Christmas days (pictures that my wife and I both recall vividly). I printed two copies of each picture and glued them back-to-back on light card stock.
I then purchased a package of clear Christmas ornament balls. I measured the size of the balls as closely as I could and cut the pictures to approximately that same size. I took the cap off of each of the balls and rolled the pictures so that they would fit into the hole at the top of the ornament and inserted a picture in each one.
The pictures unfolded themselves once inside the ornaments. I replaced the tops and put the ornaments back into the box. I wrote a letter about our many great memories of Christmas and how that I hoped these would bring back those memories each year as she placed them on the tree. It made for a nice surprise and one of those gifts that “keeps on giving.”
