Thanks to Diana W. for todays Thrifty Tip,

My thrifty Christmas Gift.   I got some canning lids from Walmart (12 for $2.00), a can of spray paint (already had but can get for about $1), some Twine (already had), some Magnets (18 for $.97 which i was able so cut in half to double the amount) and pictures of my son I printed at home.

I Spray painted the lids, cut the picture to a circle and attached it to the lid.  I cut a hole with my crop a dile and be able to put twine to hang it on the tree if wanted.  I also added a magnet to the back in case they would prefer to put in the refrigerator.  So for about $5 I was able to make two dozen…thats about $.20 each.   I am sure the grandparents, great grandparents and aunts and uncle will love them.
