Scrapbook Paper (the thicker kind works best)
Scissors or Paper Cutter
This is REALLY EASY and there are a million different ways you could do this and get very different looks. Feel free to put your own spin on it, but here is how I did mine.
I took 12x12 scrapbook paper, and cut it in half. I then cut the 6x12 piece of paper into 12 strips of 1x6 inch paper. Next, pick 6-12 pieces of the colors you like and make a pile. The more paper you use the fuller your ornament will be. If you choose a double sided paper, then you may want to use fewer pieces so you can see in the middle.
Now, punch a hole in both ends of the strips.
Cut a piece of ribbon 22-24 inches long. Fold it in half and feed it through one of the holes.
Tie a knot.
Feed the other end of the ribbon through the other hole and decide where you want to tie your knot. This will determine whether the ornament is short and fat or tall and skinny. I liked mine best short and fat, but that is your preference.(I added a bead to this one, but not the others, so that is optional.)
Spread out the strips of paper.
Next, let your extremely proud toddler hold up what he made for the camera.
