I remember making these types of paper ball ornaments when I was a child – we used to make them at school and would bring them home proudly to hang on our tree. A common practice “way back then” was to create these from old Christmas cards. Today, I used scrapbook paper that was left over from my “Believe” project. All you need to do is punch out twenty, one and one-half inch circles, fold each one into a triangle and glue them together with sticky white glue. Since I have a few days ahead of me to relax (yes, relax! . . . before Christmas!) I plan on creating some more of these magical, beautiful, and timeless ornaments with some of the old Christmas cards I have stashed away. I’m going to try using two larger circle punches to make a variety of sizes. I hope to get a photo of them posted before Christmas – which is twelve days from now, folks! Go to “About.com” for the instructions that I used. There is even a template to print out that helps you mark where the circles should be folded.
