You can use either inkjet or laser printer to print the designs on card stock and cut along the outline. You can also reduce the printing size to make smaller paper ornaments, or enlarge the print on two sheets and piece together a bigger Christmas ornament.

Step 2: glue together paper Christmas Ornaments

Use a small cylinder shaped object such as a chapstick to curl each petal a bit. This will make it much easier to glue the paper Christmas Ornaments into a ball shape.

There are 6 petals total. We will be gluing them in 3 pairs. 

Put a small dab of glue on the first petal, take the opposite petal and glue these two petals together at the top.

I used metallic strings to hang the ornaments. You can also use hemp twine , peppermint twine, or thin ribbons.

Cut a piece of string. Tie a knot to form a loop, and push one end of the loop through the bead. Use hot glue to glue the knot to the base of the bead, then to the top of the paper ornament.
