I loved the idea and thought my nieces & nephews would have fun with it. The little sticky note just covers their name, as I put alphabet letter beads in each one to spell out their name. (Should also prevent arguments over whose is whose in future years. Teehee! )
I bought large plastic ornaments, hoping they will stand up better to lots of shaking by small hands than glass.
I was unable to find nice styrofoam beads, but at my local Ms found bags of poly-fill pellets. They seem to work well, though they do make the ornament quite heavy & necessitate gluing on the cap so the ornament doesn't come apart when hanging on the tree.
The lists were just typed on the computer & printed onto light cardstock. Although the one in the pic is red, I also did some in green.
I did laminate the cards in hopes that it will help them to last for years.
I do wish I had taken a picture before I assembled them, as it was hard to get a picture of the ornament and the list at the same time.
