For best results and to make it even simpler for guests to follow, use a spiral ornament template tool. Thin, wrapping paper, old book pages, and colored printer paper work best for this craft. Print template (provided) on each sheet. For this ornament you will need six square templates.
- spiral ornament template tool (optional)
- glitter jingle bells
- gold glitter tape
- string or ribbon
- X-Acto knife
Gather all materials needed. (Image 1) Using the X-Acto knife, cut paper so you have six equal squares. For each square, cut along the inner lines of the template but make sure to not cut all the way to the ends. (Image 2) If using the template tool, fold paper diagonally, and place into tool. Run cutting knife along groves. (Image 3)
Bend and Curl to Shape
Bend the inner-most flaps towards each other and curl slightly using a pencil for shape.
Bend and Tape Flaps
Next, flip the square and bend the next set of flaps in the opposite direction from first set of flaps. Overlap the ends and secure with glitter tape. (Image 1) Repeat with remaining flaps alternating direction and tape ends together. (Image 2) Continue to do the same with the other five squares. (Image 3)
