It can not be true!
Only 101 days to Christmas!
I know it feels very far off but before you know it, you will sit with a house full of family and no spare time to make the just one special ornament.
So, come and join me and let's make some paper balls. These ornaments are so easy, your little one will definitely be able to help.
What you'll need:
Christmas cardstock (double-sided works best) - 12 strips cut into 12 x ½ inch
Bead caps - optional
Jump rings if you want to thread ribbon through
Small bells - optional

How to make the paper balls:
Cut your cardstock into the required strips.
Use a sharp needle and pierce a hole at both ends of the strips, about ½ inch from the top - as in photo 2 of the image.
Thread a bead cap, bead and another bead cap through the eye pin.
Now, thread the eye pin through the pierced holes - image 3.
Add a crimp bead, and close it with the pliers.
Shorten the eye pin with your cutter and bend the end closed.
Repeat the same process on the other end - image 4.
For variation, you can add a small bell on the inside of the ball or hang a teardrop bead at the bottom.
Carefully spread the strips open to form the ball - image 5.
Tie a ribbon or twine to hang it on your Christmas tree.
