Paper jewelery: make one out of four
You need this for the paper decoration:
- This template
- color printers
- Beautiful paper (for example, wrapping paper)
- Double-sided adhesive tape or adhesive
- Yarn (optional)
1) Gift loops? that's how it's done
Step 1: For each loop you want to cut, cut one wide and one narrow piece of paper from the original.
Step 2: Make a ring out of the wide strip so that the ends overlap. Fix ends with double-sided adhesive tape.
Step 3: Fix a small piece of double-sided tape in the middle of the loop and gently squeeze the ring.
Step 4: Cut out a small C on both sides in the middle.
Step 5: Make a ring out of your narrow strip as well. He should be a little smaller than the wide ring. Stick the small loop on the big one with double-sided adhesive tape.
Step 6: Place a narrow piece of paper around both loops and secure it with double-sided tape (white paper was used as the contrast, but you can also use the printed or other paper).
Step 7: Glue two bottom-cut strips of paper onto the present with name. Finally, put the loop on.
2) Garlands - that's how it works
Step 1: Trim paper strips.
Step 2: Make the first chain link by bending a strip to the ring and gluing the overlapping ends together.
Step 3: Proceed the same way for the next link, just put the paper strip through the first ring first.
Step 4: Continue until the chain has the right length for you. Hang them on your Christmas tree, on branches or on the ceiling.
Tealight cases (only for battery operated candles):
Cut out wide strips of paper and place them around your battery-operated candles. Attach the paper to the candle with double-sided tape. Cut off excess paper. A strip of paper should be enough for two candles.
Gift tags - how it works:
Print the tags on thick paper and cut them out. Put a hole in the top and hang the pendants with pretty yarn on your gifts - or on the Christmas tree.
