- Use regular paper instead of photo paper. Regular paper will uncurl better inside the ornament.
- Use shatterproof ornaments. This will ensure that all your kids go home with their gift intact!
- Take the pictures against a pure white surface. I like to use my whiteboard. This will make the background removal so much easier!
This is my go to gift every year! The kids and parents LOVE them so much!
I realized after creating these pictures that I could use the same images of my students to create these collage mugs! They were a HIT with my students!
The mugs are from Oriental Trading. I picked up several dozens for future classes and was able to get them for about 80 cents a piece (after the holidays) and with free shipping. You can also find them at Michael’s and Hobby Lobby. You can find the ones I picked up HERE.
I was asked for a template shortly after sharing these on IG so I put together this template with a video tutorial you can find in my shop. Click HERE or on the picture below to check that out.
My class loved these and so did their families.
