Coworker christmas

Morale at work has been down lately. Tons of work, low pay, low respect, lots of b.s. promises, etc. So I try when I can to bring a little fun into the mix. The other day, I brought a full tin of homemade cookies to the office, with the intent it would last the week - it lasted the day.

So I thought I'd make up a little something for everybody to surprise them with fun little gifts.

I knew I would use the $1 pack of Christmas scrapbook paper I picked up at the store someday!
I found the instructions for this origami wreath at Sandy's Space. But to make them ornament sized, I halved the paper squares to 3 inches.

A small gift that's actually useful made sense for the office environment, so I made these little matching sets of a paper pad, magnetic bookmark, binder clips, and a pencil (not pictured). I found the idea for the paper pad at BlueBird Sews. I picked up enough paper so everyone had a different design set.

As far as I could tell, they seemed delightfully surprised when they came in to the office that morning. Every little bit helps!
