Earlier this week, I had a couple friends over to make some Christmas ornaments.
We've actually been planning this night since last Christmas and I'm so glad we were finally able to squeeze it in before Christmas this year.
I have pictures of one of the types of ornaments we did that night.
These are so easy, but so darn cute!
All they require to make is a clear glass or plastic round ornament, some ribbon and designer series paper.
To make the ornament: Cut a sheet of 12 x12 Candy Cane Lane designer series paper into 6" by 3/4" strips. Next, wind each strip around the paper piercing tool. A pen or pencil will also work. I used a paper clip to keep them in a tight circle while I finished winding all the strips, but you don't have to paper clip them. They will be a looser curl if they aren't paper clipped.
You can see here how tightly wound the strips are.
I love the colors of the Candy Cane designer paper. So fun for a gingerbread look.
There was enough curls left over to make this tiny ornament as well.
We added a white satin bowed tied in a knot at the top of the ornament for the finishing touch.
One big and one small ornament to add to the tree. I love how they turned out!
Go ahead and give it a try. You'll be so happy you did!
Until the next time...
Keep on Stampin' and Come back again soon!
