RemARKable Holiday Madness Blog Tour - Day 2

Welcome back to the tour!  Thank you for visiting me - I hope you're enjoying all the great ideas we have to share.  Today I have an ornament that's fun to make.  It takes 12 quarter inch strips of paper, preferrably with different sides, six inches long.  I used the Deck the Halls designer paper in the Holiday Mini Catalog - love this paper!

This would be great as a package topper as well and the size can be adjusted.  Want to know how to make it?  Of course you do - here goes:
Weave 6 strips and glue down as shown and repeat with remaining 6 strips.  Adhere the tips of the top left and left top around the back to make a loop.  Repeat on other sides.  Once you have two of the lower right image you'll rotate one and put them together back to back - or front to back, whatever way you prefer.  Weave straight ends through and glue to connect.  Trim off anything that sticks out.  You're done!  I did add a little extra to mine, though.  I sprayed it all over with Frost White Shimer Paint mixed with alcohol.  Smooch spritz would look great too.  Pretty!
