Make your very own holiday memories with the addition of a holiday tree in your office. Instead of using traditional ornaments, use design scissors to cut file folders and colored paper ornaments.  Consider using paper clips to make garland, and stickers, Post-its, and rubber-bands as accent pieces.

Garlands can make great accent pieces to breakroom areas, doorways, or stairwells.  Make your own by simply using colored construction paper cut into strips.  Start by creating one closed loop with glue or staples, linking the next loop into your first one. Keep going until you reach your desired length. Choose from traditional holiday colors or go with silver and gold for a refined look!

Add faux, Post-it Note poinsettias to the office to not only bring the holidays to work, but to also infuse a sense of calmness during the hectic 4th quarter. Simply take your favorite Post-it Note color (we like red) and attach them to two rulers, inserting them in a plastic cup as a base. Cover the base with colored construction paper to create decorative “pot”.

Snowman Greeter

Make your customers and employees feel at home this holiday season with a miniature snowman. Strategically place the snowman at the reception desk so visitors feel the holiday spirit upon arrival. Cut and then wrap bubble tape to make the snowman body. Use pencils for the arms, wall pins for eyes, colored paper clip for the nose, and string for the eyes.
