#5 - Paper Ornaments

12 Days of Homemade Ornaments.
Paper Ornaments...

These are pretty hanging on the tree but you could also make a garland with them. There are so many different ways you could change them up. I hope you will have fun with this project!

For this project you will need: Scrapbook Paper and your choice of Fabrics or Washi Tapes and a large embellishment for the center. 

First you will need to cut your scrapbook paper in half. 
Decorate both halves the same. When you put them together, you want the stripes to match up. Below, you see 3 examples.

After you add your stripe of tape or fabric, fold each side back and forth accordion style and then bend it in half like you see here. 

Fold both halves of the scrapbook paper. Now, tie them together and glue the edges together so it looks like this. Now you can see why the stripe needs to be exactly the same on both halves of the scrapbook paper. It make a circle when you're done.

I used a variety of washi tape, lace, burlap, garland, and tulle.  
I added a dollar tree snowflake to the middle. 

A pile of pretty.
Paper Ornaments!

  10. You are amazing. Love these too. I did some fan styles last year as ornament cards with circles on the back to write a message, or for a tag. Love your papers.

  18. Good Morning--
    Sorry for the delay of getting back over here.
    We have been under the weather and I have not
    been on the computer.

    Your ornaments are delightful ! Some of these might work
    for a school project. I'll study those at a later date.

    Thanks agin for joining Dreaming--come by soon.

    M :)

  19. How do you get any sleep - I bet your mind is spinning -- love your ideas - I am planning to make the snowman's for sure and I will share it when I do.. and might do the birds not sure yet.. but I love them..
    But today is great also - I love color but this year I am going for a kind-a old feel last color -- with not some much brightness - so I like the four you show today that are not so bright..they would works nicely - now to find the paper. Most of my past Christmases I've had bright colors of reds and golds and the greens...
    Love your ideas..

  20. Those are looking so pretty.. I didn't try this before. Thanks for sharing this.. jaslynn, Bizbilla
