Paper Ornament

Today I Created | A Paper Christmas Ornament.

When I first saw the Sizzix, Pumpkin 3-D pop-up die by Karen Burniston, I thought it would look good as an ornament. I just needed to find the right paper that was shiny and thick enough to be sturdy.

I finally found the right paper and decided to experiment.

Things I learned: Thick paper is perfect. You need at least 13 of the folded pieces to create a full ornament. You can only cut 12 shapes out of two pieces of 12x12 paper. Really sticky tape works well but can be messy.

I hung one of my old chandelier crystals at the bottom of my ornament to give it some bling.
