Pretty paper baubles

The lovely peeps at new craft store Mushi Makes sent me a Tildas "Winter memories" paper pack . A beautiful pad of 24 double sided sheets of 230gsm acid and lignin free paper in seven different patterns, three of each plus three cut-out sheets. So to match my Vintage Christmas theme I made a bunch of pretty paper baubles dusted with coarse white glitter to hang on my white Christmas tree.
Here's how...

4 baubles

How-to step by step

  • Pretty paper bauble -steps 1-4

    Step 1

    Using the paper-mate cutters smallest circle, with the blade on the inner line Cut out two circles of paper from each printed sheet, so you have nine circles Fold all the circles of paper in half Stack circles on top of each other, Wrap a lenth of thread all the way around the stack, so that it runs along the fold. Tie ends together at top of bauble to secure.

    Step 2

    Fold and unfold paper sections, so paper starts to fan out Using a hot glue gun, place a dab of glue about 1/3 of the way up the top of the bauble, on the outside edge. Fold the facing flaps together and press to secure the glue. On the next circle along, place a dab of glue about 1/3 of the way from the bottom. Continue this all the way around, alternating high and low glue dabs.

    Step 3

    Once you've glued all the adjacent flaps together, knot ends of embroidery thread together to create a hanging loop Paint a line of glue on all the outside edges of the bauble Sprinkle glued edges with glitter, lightly tap to remove any excess Hang to dry
