I’m loving all the info and these crafts, thanks. These ornaments are confusing me though…
1st, you have a pic (#6) of a round ornament ( the bottoms) and a pic (#7) of a LINE of 10 that you want us to glue together… didn’t we ALREADY glue the round together?? Am I now taking it apart? Then in # 8 it’s back to a circle
And now we’re putting the ribbon into 1/2 of it and in #9, the ribbon is in the whole thing… is it the SAME ribbon?
Katelyn Fagan says
Darn! Sorry, it’s confusing you! Maybe I should make a video for it… (someday). I think what’s confusing you is that there are three parts – the top, the bottom, and the center. That’s what the #7 picture shows. There is no dissambling going on at all. The top and bottom are 5 scored circles each, glued together in an open-bottom circle. One of them will have the hanging mechanism in it, before you glue the strip of 10 in a line to the top and bottom open-bottom circles you made. And to glue it all together, you just match up all those folded edges.

My family made these as part of our annual Family Christmas Crafts day & they turned out amazing! I knew what they would eventually look like, but my boys & husband were just following my directions. I loved seeing their reactions when it dawned on each of them what the finished products would look like. Members of my family who’ve seen ours are now asking when we’re going to make some for them!
My grandchildren, ages 9 and 10, and I had a great time making this ornament. They were very proud of their finished product. Thank you! Instructions are clear and easy to follow.
