Did I mention I'm participating in the Freshly Blended Ornament Swap? Anticipating the packages is fun (and some ornaments are slightly entertaining). This is my second year, and I wanted to share my ornament with you. Follow along below:
Use a glass or round object to trace a circle onto desired paper. Cut them out (I cut out multiples at a time), and then stack about 12 together.
Sew a straight line down the center. I'm not sure another solution if you don't have a machine (besides borrowing like I did).
Now add a smidgen of glue and paper clip two leaves together, alternating one centered and two outside. Continue this all around the ornament until all pages are glued.
To finish, I used a paper hole punch and then tied on a small metal ring for the hook. This step is optional and hardly noticable, but I thought it added a nice polish.
I love the final! You could also spiff it up like this one, or use colored paper to create interest. Any other great ornament tutorials you are using this year? Do share!
