I have made Christmas Card Ornaments for people I work with and family members for several years. To make it more personal, you can even make themed ornaments using cards from a wedding or baby shower! They really are pretty easy to create and always are a huge hit with the people I give them to. If you use old Christmas cards, the main material is free!

Materials Needed:

*Christmas cards (or any cards/sturdy paper material you like)
*Scissors or circle cutter
*Glue
*Tube of glitter paint (I use the Tulip brand in silver or gold)
*Small round beads
*Ribbon

Instructions:


1. Cut circles out of the cards. You need 20 circles of the same size for one ornament.
2. Fold the edges of the circle up to make a triangle shape.


3. Glue the edges of 5 triangles together in a circle shape. Make 2 of these –1 for the top and 1 for the bottom of the ornament.
4. Glue the remaining 10 triangles in a chain by alternating one triangle pointing up and the next one pointing down. Connect the 2 ends to make a circle.

5. Thread your ribbon through all 3 pieces making a globe shape and tie the ends to make a loop to hang the ornament. Glue the top, middle, and bottom together along the folded edges.
6. Paint all of the edges with the glitter and put a bead at each intersection. I think gold is the best. It really makes the ornament pop!
7. Finish the ornament by tying a couple of different ribbons at the top of the ornament in a bow.
