Recycled Book Page Sphere Ornament

Materials Needed:
Book Pages or Scrapbooking Paper
Embellishments {glitter & bell}

Begin by cutting a circle template from a piece of card stock. {I simply traced around a 2 1/2 inch diameter jar lid} Using the template, cut out 8 circles from a sheet of cardstock and 8 circles from book pages. You can use any paper you would like for these, however the ornament will hold its shape much better if at least half of the circles are cut from cardstock.

Fold each circle in half.

Start gluing together the circles, alternating between the card stock and the book pages. I used the tiniest bit of hot glue around the edges and along the bottom. {a glue stick would also work} Continue until you have connected all of the circles.

Before gluing the last two circles in place, tuck a piece of ribbon into the center for the hanger. I threaded a silver jingle bell onto the ribbon before gluing.

To add a little sparkle you can brush on a tiny bit of white glue to the paper edges and sprinkle with glitter. I used PK Glitz in Silver .

All of the ornament tutorials featured are very basic and allow you to create them to your own personal taste and style ~ be creative and have fun! Enjoy!
