Decorative paper, especially marbled paper is one of my favorite things. When I was looking for a way to make ornaments, a friend showed me a sample ornament. Several hundred ornaments later this tutorial is the result! It's a great gift and novel way to showcase your hand decorated paper or use your favorite scrapbook paper. Everyone always asks "How did you do that?" This tutorial will lead you step-by-step in words and photos to craft your own one-of-a-kind ornament in small, medium or large. All sizes included in the pattern. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY measure, cut and score accurately SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS small - about 2 1/2" diameter medium - about 3" diameter large - about 3 1/2" diametr

  • decorative paper {8 1/2" x 11"} or smaller for one ornament depending on whether you're making the small, medium or large
  • stiff cardboard {8 1/2" x 11"}
  • glue stick

I've always made things as long as I can remember. Both my Mom and Dad were"makers", so it just was what you did! The handcrafted item was always respected and expected in my family. Mom taught me how to knit, which was a challenge, as she was left-handed and I'm right-handed! Knitting is the one art and craft that I always return to through the years. My other favorites are marbling, bookbinding, calligraphy and beading. It's especially fun to try and combine all of my favorites into one design! I can add sewing to the favorites list again after taking the "Couture Dress" class on Craftsy - I hadn't sewn for myself in a long time because fitting and the way patterns are done frustrated me to no end - the class gave me a whole new way to approach sewing and I'm enjoying it again.
