Christmas Project - Paper Ornaments and Garland

I had lots of fun sitting down with some products from Scrapdoodles this past week.  I picked up a few sheets from the Twig line from Little Yellow Bicycle.  I really loved the white and brown with the bright blues.  I decided to make a garland from the 3 sheets I picked up and the little pack of mini pompoms.  I simply cut some scalloped circles out with my Cricut and then strung them together with the little pompoms using fishing line and a needle.   I tied the ends to a small piece of blue pipe cleaner that I bent and secured into a circle.  That way nothing slid off and the loops on each end make the garland easy to hang.  I did add some glitter glue across each of the circles as an after thought.  The fishing line was a bit slippery and the glitter glue I spread on the circles helped secure the line in place.  I think it will look great on a little mini Christmas tree with some blue or white lights.
I also made this awesome ornament (or tree topper) from some of the papers.  I cut several strips and stapled them together in the middle.  I then secured each flap down as I looped the ends toward the center.  I cut a snowflake with the Cricut and also made a simple mini accordion circle to stack in the middle.  I topped it off with another little pompom.  Hope you're having fun with paper this season!
