Christmas Baubles

I am Guest Designer for Craftwork Cards this month and this project is being shared over on the Craftwork Cards and Friends Official Facebook Group, we are having a Christmas Advent event - an inspiration project will be shared every day.  If you are not a member pop over and join, there is lots of fabulous inspiration and competitions along with special offers and information about new launches - it's such a friendly group.

I used papers from Christmas Post and Peppermint Forest collections to create my Christmas Baubles.


I can remember making these as a child, they are quite easy.  I used a 2" punch to create 20 circles from a variety of different papers.


You just fold the edges to form a triangle and glue them all together.  I always attach pearls at the corners just to finish them nicely.


Thank you for visiting my blog today, please leave a comment so that I can come and visit you.

Fabulous baubles - they take me back to my childhood too! We always used to make our decorations - lots of baubles and garlands (which always came unstuck part way through Christmas!).
