Paper Ornaments

Any chance I get, I make a paper ornament or two in preparation for the holidays. The possibilities are endless with these cute little paper balls. Plus, what a great way to use up all the small pieces of scrap paper y'all have laying around.
 4"x1/2" strips for small ornaments. 6"x3/4" strips for the larger ornaments.
Stack up 13 strips and secure the ends together with a brad (not a man named brad but a craft brad). The longer the tip the better. I used standard square brads for the little lanterns and cute snowflakes for the larger ornaments.
 Back sides.
 Start with the bottom strip and twist out. etc. etc. etc.
 etc. etc. etc.
So cute and easy it's like paper magic!
