Be CHRISTmas - Curly paper ornaments10:41:00 AM
Yes...I know! I have CHRIST big and bold in the Christmas! That is because for our family this year we are trying to remember to keep...Christ in...Christmas! Its a good reminder for myself! I am going to show you a few Christmas goodies here and there but today's is how to make cute glass ornaments with curly paper inside! Simple yet...adorable I think! AND you can change up the look a bit by using different colored papers or even papers with different textures, decorations etc! I love them!
I used large glass clear ornaments that I found at Michael's! You know I love any place that either already has them on sale OR I can use a coupon! I used 2 different scrap book papers (12x12 size) and then cut them into 1" strips using my Fiskars paper cutter.
You will start with 1 strip of paper at a time and roll it tightly in your fingers...I started to use a pencil and found my fingers did it better and the curls were tighter like I wanted!
I then took the end of my scissors and pushed the paper out...so I could start cutting the curls.
I cut various lengths of curls like the one above. Some were longer!
Take your curls and drop them into your glass ornament until it is a little more than 1/2 way full.
Then you are going to pick up your ornament and shake shake shake! This way you are intermixing the papers!
I found some cute ribbon in my stash to make a bow. Add a hook and you can hang on your tree or even gift to friends, neighbors or teachers! I am having Emily Grace and Noah make them for their teachers as I think its easy enough for them to do! I will take them to pick out the paper themselves! Have a blessed day!
