Paper Peppermint Ornaments

 
The annual Christian Paper Artists Ornament Swap has transpired once again.  This year I made paper peppermint ornaments.  Simple and sweet, I thought they turned out really cute!  This project is also a great way to use up some scraps from your stash.  :)



 
 

1. Cut circles from white paper 
and patterned red paper.   
Snip the red patterned circles 
into triangles. (Imagine slicing a pizza.)  

Keep in mind you will need 2 
white circles for each ornament.



 2.   Arrange 
the red triangles 
on the white circles
as desired & glue.


 
 



3.  Decorate your peppermints 
as desired.  I used clear and red 
stickles (glitter glue) on mine.
  




4.  Cut small tissue paper strips and accordion fold.




 5.  Attach tissue and a loop of twine to the back side of one white circle.   I ran these through my Xyron so the back was completely covered in adhesive. 




 
6.  When you have the tissue arranged the way you like it, attach another peppermint on top.   Now they are ready to hang!
