paper ornaments - update


















after dropping my christmas cards in the mail, i decided it was time to cross these off the list! i hung them up above my desk at work to keep the holiday spirit with me all day. they were really easy to make & it only took 3 sheets of cardstock for 4 ornaments.

i love this idea & as soon as i finish 4 sewing projects, two printing projects & print, cut & mail my own holiday cards, this is what i'll be doing. i'm spending the holiday season in seattle this year & am debating the idea of decorating. this & some christmas lights or a wreath may be just enough.

check out the full tutorial at design*sponge. maybe this could even turn into a craft night for all!

These are beautiful Ann...I love them. What type of paper did you use? Was it card stock?

These are adorable, and so simple. I think this is a project the kids and I will do this week! Thanks for posting the link to the tutorial, also.

I guess I will give details of mine. I used christmas printed scrapbook paper. Cut in inch wide lengths. It was a fun and simple project.
