Hi everyone, it's Christine today with my very first post here at Write.Click.Scrapbook.! Today I want to share some easy paper ornaments that you can make at home with scraps of patterned paper or cardstock. They look lovely hung up on a tree together! So grab some paper scraps and big circle or scallop punches, some glue, some ribbon or twine, and follow along!
I've chosen some POW gold glitter paper from American Crafts, and a striped patterned paper from an old Christmas paper stack. I'm using a big scalloped circle punch as well.
In total, we want to have eight scalloped circles punched out. I punched out four of the striped paper.
And also four of the gold glitter paper.
I've got my scalloped circles all punched out to begin making my paper ornament.
Next I folded each scalloped circle in half, making sure to match the scallops from side to side when I fold.
Lastly, I glued them together, alternating between the striped and gold pieces. I knotted a piece of twine and used a couple of glue dots to adhere the twine into the middle of the paper ornament so I could use it to hang up the ornament.
I also cut out some other paper ornaments using some downloaded shapes from the Silhouette store, and using my Silhouette SD digital cutter to cut them out.
Here they are after I've assembled them. They look so cute together!
They look great on my little table top tree in our foyer.
I hope you found some inspiration to make some quick and easy paper ornaments with your paper scraps at home! You can hang them up in the tree, or make a garland with them as well.
If you make some paper ornaments, be sure to share it with us in the Flickr gallery. Happy Holidays!
