CHRISTMAS ORNAMENTS FROM PAPER November 29 2020

Another crafty way to decorate is by making ornaments from paper or ribbons. Here are instructions for two types of easy paper ornamentation. Choose a paper that is not neither too thin, nor too think so it will be easy for you to bend, yet strong enough to sustain some wear and tear.

1 type - lantern

+ Cut strips of paper with the same width, for example 1.5-2cm.

+ You need three lengths, 1 short, 2 medium, and 2 long.

+ Make sure all strips that come in pair (medium and long) have the same length.

+ Hold all strips and staple them on each side

+ Punch a hole on the topside and add a rope

 

2 type - nesting circles

+ Cut 5-6 paper strips - 11, 13, 15 and 17cm with the same width

+ Punch holes in both sides of all strips

+ Cut a 15cm rope and tie its two ends together

+ Take the shortest strip on one end and try to meet it with the other end

+ Put the rope through the holes in the paper strips

+ Repeat this process with the rest of the paper strips
