Handmade Ornaments

I made these ornaments in 2009 before I started blogging. They were a easy, inexpensive way to make some really beautiful ornaments to give as gifts.

Supplies needed:

  • Glass ornaments
  • Scrapbook paper
  • Paper Trimmer
  • Ribbon
  • Embellishments (Optional)
Step One:
I used scrapbook paper that had different Christmas/holiday sayings on it. Cut the words into long strips

Step Two:
Open the top of the ornament and place the strips of paper inside.

Step Three:
Put the top back in place and secure a ribbon on the top. I added some small snowflake shapes I found near the buttons to the ribbon. I just added a jump ring to the snowflake and attached it to the top.
