I am always watching for new Christmas tree ornament ideas. I love making new decorations and decorating my Christmas tree with them. This month I found an adorable Christmas ornament idea made entirely from paper. Here is the finished project…
Materials you will need to make this project:
- coordinating patterned scrapbook papers 1-3 styles
- coordinating pigment inks
- clear rubber stamps
- white and colored cardstock scraps
- clear acrylic handle for clear rubber stamps
- 24 gauge wire
- circle cutter or template
Cut 12 circles in total cutting the same number of circles from each color. Decorate the backs of any single sided paper using your clear hobby rubber stamps
and inks to create a design that will add to your color theme.
Fold each circle in half and stack together, alternating patterns. Wrap the wire over the fold and secure to hold the circles together.
Using double sided tape or small glue dots, place a dot of glue on the top 1/3 of the folded circle. Fold the next flap over it. On the next piece place the double sided tape or small glue dot on the bottom third. Alternating until all the circles have been secured together.
Fold over two flaps to create a relatively flat area on the bauble. Stamp a Christmas design onto white cardstock, color it if desired, and mat in a coordinating piece of solid colored cardstock. Secure onto the two flaps to complete the bauble. Tie a ribbon to the top and if you want to be really creative you might add a little white glitter along the top of the paper edges to look like a skiff of snow sitting below the ribbon.
