"I don't know why, but I was thinking this was going to be a heavier, thicker glass, like one of those paperweights you can buy that you stick your photo inside of yourself. This is nothing like that. It is very thin and delicate- almost fragile, but is very beautiful. I think the negative reviews here come from a misunderstanding (as I did) of just what SF means by "ornament". I think many of us think of a heavier or more substantial ornament you would hang on a Christmas tree. This is much more like a suncatcher you would hang in a window or other backlit location. I agree that the glass photo doesn't look good hung against a dark backdrop (think Cmas tree), but hung in a window, the effect is that of stained glass. I think it is very pretty and I would definitely order again."
"Great quality...color of picture is great...comes in satin gift bag ready to go...everyone on my list will get one this year...how awesome and personalized it is instead of the ornaments that just have name personalized...I can capture and commemorate a special memory to the recipient to be enjoyed year after year...THANKYOU SHUTTERFLY...my tree will be covered with all my favorite shots...( just like my fridge is covered with all my favorite shots in magnets...lol)"
"This lovely little gift can be given anywhere, anytime....great quality!"
"I made this ornament of my Daughter, It turned out just so beautiful. It was a give to her Great Great Grandma. Let just say there were tears!!"
"I've been ordering ornaments for myself and family/friends to commemorate something that happened that year for the past few years. Every time I order one it always turns out beautiful."
Here at Shutterfly, we believe adding a personal touch can make all the difference whether you are looking for decorations or gifts. With our online tools, you can customize anything you need for the holidays to be classy, funny, heartwarming or professional. Here are a few tips to pull off the style you want.
Part of putting together a classy holiday look is pulling out old ideas and giving them a modern facelift. An easy way to do this with square ornaments and other decorations is to use black-and-white photographs.
Another vintage look that was used during the holidays is glass ornaments. Everything from little glass baubles called "kugels" to long, glass garlands adorned trees, mantels and windows. Mix in your vintage glass decorations with our glass photo ornaments.
Wooden ornaments, like rocking horses and snow sleighs, were also popular on older trees. Show off your favorite holiday photos with our wooden cube ornaments that look great either hanging or resting on a coffee table.
If you have some funny photos, then it's easy to make personalized decorations with a bit of silliness to them. One way to highlight the funny side of family photos is by choosing non-standard colors. While typical holiday colors include red, green and blue, why not try some unique purple ornaments?

Whether you want to decorate your personal cubicle or you're in charge of the company's holiday decor, there are a few ways you can ensure your decorations are professional and appeal to a wide audience. One place to start are old company photographs, if you have access to them.
The clean lines of rectangle or square ornaments look good on many office holiday trees. One customization option is to put the company motto on one side and pictures of employees on the other. This is good for a tree that sits in the foyer of your business where new customers can see it.
