I had some colored scrapbook paper left over from a project I'll show you later this week and figured I'd put those pieces of paper to use in an ornament. I also had a clear glass ornament and since my level of craft skill doesn't extend to ship-in-a-bottle caliber work, I needed to find something else to fill it up with.
Enter a few pieces of double-sided, Christmas-themed scrapbook paper. Perfect.
First, I sliced the paper into strips of varying width. Then I rolled the strips into little spirals and slid them into the neck of the ornament...
As I rolled up the paper, I mixed up the sizes that I put in...sometimes very thin ones, sometimes wider strips...
Once the ornament was full, I put the lid back on and hung it up:
I love how many dimensions this has - there are so many things to look at inside the ornament. It's simple to make using any festive paper you have laying around... scrapbook paper? wrapping paper? cards?
