Paper Curl Ornament

You know how I love making ornaments. Well, these are my latest creations. And they are SO EASY!

I’ve seen glass ornaments filled with thin strips of crimped paper. I set out to make that. But then I couldn’t find my paper crimper – it probably got mixed in the huge crafting purge earlier this year. So I thought I would try curling the strips. I think it worked well, don’t you?

I tried strips 1/8″ wide and strips 1/4″ wide. I think the thinner strips look better. The bone folder (will we ever stop finding uses for this awesome tool?) curled the paper strips quickly and beautifully. To add interest, I curled half the strips with one side of the DSP out, and half of them with the other side of the DSP out.

I dropped each curl into the ball, turning them this way and that, until it seemed full enough. Then I replaced the ornament top. It took less than one sheet of Nordic Noel DSP. I can’t wait to use the other DSPs!
