Paper Christmas Baubles
you will need-
Vintage map or decorative paper
Double sided tape
Thin twine, thread or wool
Large eyed needle
Small luggage labels
Large and small craft paper punch (or two different sized circle templates, pencil and scissors)
☞ Cut 5 large circles and 15 small from your chosen paper, I used a vintage navigational chart, stamp each of the larger paper rounds with the design of your choice and when dry fold each circle in half, image on the inside.
☞ Pop a tiny strip of double sided tape or glue on the plain side of each fold, line up your next circle and stick the half moons together, repeat until the five form a sphere.
☞ Stick each sphere in a cocktail stick and carefully paint the edges with glue.
☞ Over a small bowl shake over the glitter until it covers all the glue on all five sides, shake off excess glitter stand somewhere to dry.
☞ Meanwhile stamp and decorate your luggage labels and loop a length of string through the hole.
☞ When your glittered edges are dry use the needle to guide two small, the large and the final small bauble onto the string, tie a knot and hang!
