Irina from Irina's Cute Box is back today to share another great project.  Paper ornaments like this are so fun to make and super inexpensive.  I love the festivity and uniqueness they bring to holiday decor.  Irina made hers large, for a table accent instead of Christmas tree ornament size.  The silver holographic paper she chose is just my kind of glitzy, sparkly awesomeness.

Hello SBLC readers!  I am excited to share this paper ball ornaments from my childhood with you today.  It was a fun project in kindergarten when we made them out of old post cards.  I don't have any post cards to recycle, so I simply got in Michaels scrapbooking heavy paper with holographic finish. This ball actually not a Christmas tree ornament, unless you have a really tall Christmas tree.   I simply used it as a home decoration.


First, you need flower templates. You can download them there in JPG file. Print the page and cut off one or all flowers. This particular home decoration ball was made using template 1 (the big one).

You'll need 12 flowers. Make slots along the dashed lines.

Use the slits to join flower petals together. Keep adding more flowers. So all petals will be connected tho the neighbors.

Keep adding flowers until the ornament will be a ball shaped.
