Holiday Ornament


To make these ornaments print out the pattern Ornaments.pdf and use it to cut out the shapes. If your paper is patterned on only one side, you will need to cut out two of each shape and glue them together. I used a glue stick. Then I used hole punch to place a hole in the top. I cut ribbon of various lengths and tied them to the ornament. I then used a command hook to attach them to the ceiling. Cute, cheap, and easy! I did consider using dental floss or fishing line, but in the end I decided I liked the look of the ribbon. If you are using two pieces of scrapbook paper for each ornament, you could glue the ribbon between the sheets of paper if you don't want to use a hole punch and tie the ribbon. If you have a paper cutter with ornament shapes, you can skip the step where you cut out the shapes by hand and use your instrument to do so. I think I might get them laminated so I can use them year, after year, after year.


I couldn't decide between snowflakes, snowmen, gingerbread men, presents, stars, or ornaments for this year. This possibilities are endless.
