    Embellished Tee

    Design by Erin Roe

    Give family members a lasting keepsake. Design a logo in image-editing software. Print it on iron-on transfer paper, and iron the design onto a white T-shirt for each attendee. For an extra touch, add a felt feather or other suitable symbol. Remember to include the year!

    Name Tags

    Design by Erin Roe

    Dig through your stash of old family photos to find shots of family members from way back when. Using simple pennants as the base, size the photos to fit and label each with small letter stickers. Use safety pins to attach them to each guest's shirt.

    Drink Labels

    Design by Erin Roe

    Help family members keep track of their drinks with personalized drink labels. Use a circle punch to create the label; slip a straw through it and tie it to a decorated bottle with a cute strip of ribbon. Add a band of paper and a monogram to dress up the bottle.

    Family Tree Centerpiece

    Design by Erin Roe

    A backyard twig tucked into a skein of yarn in a vase becomes a family tree, while paper birds hold a clothesline full of photos. (Add glass beads to the vase for weight if needed.) The photos are mounted on rectangles of cardstock that have been folded over the clothesline and given a decorative trim.

    Bingo Game

    Design by Erin Roe

    Create a fun game of bingo with photos of each family member. Punch patterned paper circles to use as markers. Scan each photo, convert it to black-and-white, then use your image-editing software to create a grid. Mat the card with patterned papers and use a decorative corner punch for some extra oomph.
