5th Week of Christmas

The scalloped ornament is very simple to make--and you can even use up some of your scraps. you know I'm all about using up that scrap basket.

Step 1: Punch 10 scallop circles out of designer paper (you can use cardstock that you've stamped on as well)

Step 2: Fold each circle in half making sure to fold each circle the same way.

Step 3: Adhere the the circles together, all except one.

Step 4: Use cord to create the loop, add beads or pearls from the pretties kit.

Step 5: Adhere the last of the circles together around the cord.

This ornament is simply a paper lantern. I made it very quickly at the October Hostess Club just to give another idea of ornaments you could make using paper. I also saw a very cute example of this lantern using the apple cider paper and made it into a pumpkin--very cute.

Step one: Cut 10 strips of 1" by 6" paper.

Step two: Punch a hole in the top and bottom of each strip. If you have the crop-a-dile it will punch through all ten sheets at once. I do not so this was the most time consuming part of the project.

Step three: String the ribbon through the holes and tie a knot on the top and bottom to make sure it doesn't slip.

Supply List:

Designer Series Paper
Pretties Kit
Scalloped Circle Punch

All supply list items will be 20% until November 7th. Don't forget to mention the 12 Days of Christmas when you order.

If you have any questions about making the ornaments you can always call or email me. They really are pretty simple, but writing the directions makes them sound a little more complicated.
