Use rolled scrapbook paper to make this ornament.

Cheri: I cannot believe I have done 3 ornaments so far. Christmas is coming way too quick this year.

Scrap Paper Christmas Trees

Supplies:

Scrap paper or scrap book paper (I used a gift bag for the green tree)

Hole punch or a needle (the hole punch needs to be a small one)

Wire

Beads

Glue (If you would like to glue your tubes closed)

The easy part:

Cut strips of paper, in different widths. I think mine were 4 inches, 3 ½ inches, 3 inches, and down to maybe a ¼ of an inch. I made all the strips about 4 inches in length. Roll the strips like you are making little straws. After you have them all rolled, just find the center in each one and put a hole in it. Make sure you go all the way through it. This can be a little tricky if the paper is thick. This is when a needle is helpful. Run the wire through the tube. You can make a loop in each end of the wire and string them separately, or you can string all of them in a row on a wire, moving from largest to smallest. I put a bead in between each one.

I really like how these ornaments turned out and I think they will be a great addition to our Ornament Advent Tree.
