Tutorial for Paper Christmas Bauble

A Happy Thanksgiving to all my friends and followers in America, hope you are having/have had a great day!
* * * * *
This is my christmas bauble:
..made from half a piece of scrapbooking paper. It can also be made from old christmas cards or paper you decorate yourself.

To make it you cut up your paper into 10 strips:
Mine were 6" by 1" (but they could be slightly narrower)

Make a punched hole in both ends and insert a paper fastener in each (I couldn't find my normal ones so used flower shaped fasteners)

Then 'fan' out the pieces into the bauble shape:
Tie some thread around the paper fastener and hang:

Another simple decoration for your tree that only takes about 5 minutes to make.  I think a collection would look good made with different coloured papers.

Thanks for looking and for any comments,
See you tomorrow,

I have just made these for my daughter's room. Didn't have any paper fasteners so used buttons sewn either side of the holes. They worked really well xx
