Vintage Paper Christmas Ornament Supply List
- Scalloped Circle punch
- Round Circle Punch
- Wooden Discs
- Glue Stick
- Hot Glue
- vintage sheet music (which you can find here right here at The Graphics Fairy)
- Center Graphics (Also found on this site)
I used a 1 1/2″ scalloped punch for my ornament but you can use smaller and if you are looking for a larger embellishment…go for it!
First you need to punch out a stack of circles…easy easy easy!!!
Then it is time to make the cones…make lots of them! It is something that you can do while you are watching TV or chatting at the kitchen table…just take your circle and gently fold as shown and then add a bit of glue to the left side and then fold the right side over and press…repeat…repeat…repeat!!!
Now take your 1 1/2 inch wood circle or whatever size you are using and start the building process. I use hot glue for this part. A little dab…press the cone on…repeat and repeat and repeat till the circle is full. They you will probably want to add another row…so just move the cone tips to the center and make another go around.
You then apply a vintage Christmas circle graphic to a wooden medallion (I used the Christmas Elf Girl Image) and hot glue to the center…then all you have to do is attach a ribbon loop and you are ready to hang!
You no longer have to search for the perfect sheet music …just run out some whenever you need it from The Graphics Fairy. To let you know…from one 8 1/2 X 11 inch page I got 40 circles to work with so you can get 2 vintage paper ornaments this size from one printed sheet…pretty cool right! I stacked to sheets on a page to fill the page at a good dpi quality
You don’t have to use them as ornaments…you can also use them to decorate your packages instead of a bow…I know everyone will love these as part of their present! If you need just a quick wrapping embellishment…just punch a larger scalloped circle and then glue a wooden medallion with an image on it onto and viola…in seconds you have a gorgeous package! So many possibilities…so many choice Explore the Christmas images and find the perfect centers for your creations or like I said above…family photos…beloved pets…an endless selection to make these with your personal spin!.
Hope you have tons of fun making these Vintage Paper Christmas Ornaments! They would look fabulous with other images here at the graphics fairy…have a look around at some of her scrapbooking sheets…I just love the vintage music sheets though…they are such a festive touch!.
