I got this idea from someone on the Cricut mb last year. She did such a beautiful job. I had to try it out this year and I have to say, I love how they turned out! They are really simple to make. You just cut paper into strips, wrap around a pencil and pop the paper into the ornament. You repeat this until you are satisfied with the look. Then, tie ribbon to the top of the ornament and wahlah! You have a homemade ornament. I did quickly realize that double sided paper looks a lot better than single sided paper. : ) Hope you enjoy.
