Loopy Christmas Ornament

Here is a pretty simple ornament that the boys and I made up this year. I used some red patterned and green patterned papers from previous years retreat kits from ClubScrap.

Very simple project but be sure and have some paper clips handy to hold pieces together while the glue is drying.

Cut green pieces 5.5 in long and 1 inch wide. Red ones can be shorter, like maybe 4 inches. This doesn't have to be precise. Our ornament turned out fairly large, so if you want it smaller, cut your pieces shorter.

Fold a loop into each of the green pieces and adhere the two ends together. Now you could use roller
adhesive if you like, but i wanted to ensure it didn't fall apart in storage, so I used liquid adhesive for mine. In my case I used small clips to hold them together while drying.

Once you have all the green ones folded and adhered, and dried - then fold the red ones, put adhesive on both sides of the ends of both red flaps and adhere in between two green ones, again hold with a clip. Once those - sets of green/red/green dry - adhere all the sets together.
You can add an additional extra long folded piece for the 'hanger'. I cut mine about 8 inches long and 1/2in wide. I then cut and matted a circular photo in the center of the ornament.

The majority of the materials used in this project are from ClubScrap. TFL DebDuzScrappin
