Paper Bauble Tutorial

As promised here are the instructions for making the paper bauble.
You will need:
Bakers Twine
2 small brads
Snowflake or other paper ornament to hang in the centre of the bauble.
2 scraps of double sided patterned paper (min size 6cm wide x approx 15cm length)

Cut each 6cm wide piece into 4 strips each measuring 1.5 cm .

Place the strips on top of each other, alternating the patterns.
Make a hole at the top and bottom of the strips.
insert a brad into one end .

Thread the ornament /snowflake onto the Bakers Twine, 

then thread 
both ends of the twine through the other hole.
(Make sure that the thread isn't too long - you want your ornament to dangle inside the bauble!)

Insert the brad through the centre point of your length of ribbon, then through the hole and fasten.

Tie the ribbon into a bow, then fan out each strip until you get your bauble shape.
Make sure that you have the ornament on the INSIDE of your bauble when you start to fan it out
- it doesn't look right on the outside!!

There you have it - baubles at minimum cost from scraps of DSP!
