Paper Bauble Ornaments

3 comments

These fun baubles are cute as a stand-alone ornament and very pretty when strung together. Use a circle punch to make tree ornaments or use the printable template to make oversized ornaments to hang around the house! Try cutting smaller or larger circles to make different sizes. You can also add more circles to make it look fuller. Print out the template to create different shapes.

Tis the Season Fir Trees

These little evergreens are cute enough to give as party favors or to decorate a gift. And, of course, you hang them on your tree! In today’s craft I unexpectedly found a new use for a common object. While I started making this tree, I didn’t have my usual Poly-fil® or fabric scraps. After scratching my head for a moment, I saw a plastic bag lying on the table. Ah ha! I cut a piece of the bag and used it for filling the tree!

Multi-Faceted Ornament

Love, love, love paper crafting! These icosahedrons are fun to make and super cute.  You can switch up the size of circles to make these cuties smaller or larger. Jumbo-size it and use them as ceiling decorations! Instead of buying new cardstock, try making these from old Christmas cards, gift bags or even gift boxes. When choosing paper, I recommend selecting 3 different colors/prints.
