Today the wind is blowing and the snow is falling and it's seriously getting me in the Christmas Mood!
Our ornament for today is another super simple one! I found the idea here. You need some scrapbook paper, a ruler, pencil, scissors, a hole punch and brads. I cut my paper in one inch by six inch strips and it worked, but next time I'd make them thinner and longer. I had some bending issues... So here is what I started with:
Punch a hole on each end of every strip. The I had ten strips ready, but I only ended up using six. Then stack your strips up and fasten them at one end with a brad.
Now the original poster fastened them on each side and then gently spread out the strips to create a globe. I couldn't get it! So I unfastened one side and spread out the strips.
Then I flipped the whole thing over and bent each strip back one at a time to form the globe. When I had all the opposite side holes matched up, I fastened them with a brad.
Here is where I had to cut down my number of strips. Again, if I had cut the strips thinner, I think more strips would have worked out all right. In the end, though, it turned out great! Here it is on our tree:
