Once again this year I made a few more paper globe ornaments. I have this thing for paper . . . and instead of scrapbook paper I’m using Christmas cards from Christmas’s past.
What a great way to put these treasures to use and to honour the people who have taken the time to send cards to me over the years. These are just so simple to make (see tutorial at end of post) and they give me so much pleasure. I’m hoping they become cherished heirlooms someday.
You can add sparkle to the edges, a tassel, just anything you can think of. Here I’ve added little red and gold gems just to give it a bit of bling.
Use a punch to cut 20 – 2 inch circles.
Make an equilateral triangle out of brown cardstock that is 1 3/4 inches on all sides. The angles of an equilateral triangle are 60 degrees.
Use it to make three marks on your circle to use as a guide for folding.
Score, and then fold up the three sides of your circle. You can use a bone folder and a ruler to score, but I use my small paper cutter with the blunt folding blade – but use it ever so lightly or you will cut through the paper.
