Hello everyone! Today it's time for a Doodlebug Christmas Tutorial!
I don't know about you, but in November and December I'm always terribly busy and although I would love to create some handmade Christmas cards or ornaments very often I just don't have the time!
Last year I decided that this year it would be different! I was going to start early and create handmade Christmas cards for my family and friends and create some decorations for our tree.... BUT .... of course I totally forgot about my resolution and didn't start early at all!
Because I still want to create some homemade cards and decorations, I decided on this super quick AND fun technique:
1. Gather your supplies: one sheet of doublesided Christmas paper (I used "Holliday Tweet" from Santa's Workshop) and a circle cutter.
2. Cut 4 circles of different sizes:
3. Fold them once:
4. Fold them twice:
5. Fold them a third time:
6. They should look like this:
7. Adhere them to a card (I added a glue dot in the middle of the fold so the circle would stay open too wide):
8. Stitch allong all 4 sides of the card, add a sentiment and a little sticker to the top of the tree and you're done!! Easy Peasy!
But, wait there's more! I said cards and ornaments ... and this technique is easily translated from a card to an ornament, look:
1. Punch the same 4 circles and fold them the exact way as you did above:
2. Instead of adhering them to paper, you simply string a piece of Doodle Twine through them and then you'll have this:
That's it!! Easy Peasy!
Hope you like it!
