Hello! Christmas is next week! Eek! Annnnd the kiddos will be out of school soon! Theyโ€™ll need something to keep them busy while you are doing your last minute holiday preparations! Well, my kiddos will anyways! ha! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Today Iโ€™d love to share a cute, kid-friendly & easy paper ornament tutorial with you. So keep reading to see how easy these are to put together.

For this project you’ll need:

holiday scrapbook paper
circle punch, circle maker or a Silhouette
Elmer’s X-TREME glue stick
metal ornament hook
hot glue & glue
holiday stamp
white card stock
piece of ribbon
mini hole punch

I bought this cool little gadget at Hobby Lobby with my 40% off coupon. I’m still getting the hang of it. ha! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Buuut it really did make it super easy to cut out a bunch of circles. You could also use a circle punch or a Silhouette to do the same thing. ๐Ÿ™‚ (I LOVE my Silhouette! You can check out all my Silhouette tutorials HERE.)

I cut about 10 circles out (all the same size).

Then I folded all the circles in half (pretty side of the paper inside).
Then I started gluing the circles together one side to another side & so on.
When I got to the last two circles I hot glued the hook inside before I glued the last two circles together.
Next I stamped Merry Christmas on some white card stock & punched it out with a circle punch. Then I used a mini hole punch to make a spot to attach the ribbon.
Then I tied the tag around my hook with a ribbon. That’s it! ๐Ÿ™‚
Now it’s ready to hang on the tree! ๐Ÿ™‚ I was thinking next time I try this I’ll probably add more circles to make the ornament a little fuller. You could also used different colors of scrapbook paper & make some fun patterns. Get creative! ๐Ÿ™‚
