More Crafts ~ Decorative Paper Ornament

O.k....now you know I am not a crafty person...BUT...I got such a positive response to my Sweetheart Paper Garland post the other day, that I actually went out and bought a book of patterned paper at Walmart. There were a few ideas on the back of the paper books so I thought I'd just Google them when I got home. Unfortunately I couldn't find what I was looking for, so I had to go on the pure memory of what I saw on the back of one of the books. I thought this little decorative ornament was simply adorable.


This is all you need to create this delicate little ball...

Or if you have a Die Cut crafting machine you could easily forgo the tedious task of cutting each individual shape. (Like I did)

So I cut about 50 flower shapes to cover my 3 inch diameter Styrofoam ball. I took one flower and pierce it with the pin and then pushed it into the Styrofoam ball...I repeated until the ball was completely covered.

Then I took a piece of ribbon (I used 30 inches of ribbon) and tied the ends together to create a bow. I pushed another pin through the center of the bow and then pushed into the ball and I was done!

Have fun with it!!

  8. Love it! I never thought of creating one out of paper! I had actually purchased supplies to make something similar around Christmas with some tiny craft flowers I found in the scrapbook department. Unfortunately we never got around to it, so I tucked the supplies away until next year. It never occurred to me to make them for Valentines! Thanks to your post I'm going to pull them back out and make them next week!
