Good Monday morning! Are you all adjusted to the time change? I confess, I am not. And our dog definitely is not. Enough already…. Today’s post is about ornaments or packaging, whichever you choose. And I forget what they are called šŸ„“, but they are very fun to make.

Aren’t these fun? Of course, these are the same, just turned over to the other side so you can see both. The DSP is Painted Christmas. I simply took a 12″ length about 1 1/4″ in width and scored it every 1/2″, then folded & scored so it was like an accordion, then adhered the two ends together to form the circle. I also found it was better to use a glue gun once it was at this stage to adhere the center circle to the accordion. Below is a photo prior to the center being attached, then the reverse side after..

I used the silicone mat as a foundation for the accordion circle, and a glue gun to add adhesive to the center area and added the die cut circle. The die cut circles are from die cut from Garden Green card stock and use the Stylish Shapes Dies.

Your next question might be, “What are you going to do with these?” Here are some ideas…

  • attach to a package front
  • add string and hang at various lengths in a window, or on a bannister
  • decorate a Christmas tree
  • add string and hang at various lengths from a spring tension rod in an entryway

What’s fun about these is how different they look in various widths. These second set of photos – the width was more like 1 3/4″. And of course, you could make these from regular card stock and die cut the center from a coordinating color. Here, I was just using odds & ends of strips left over.
