These are by far my favirote handmade ornaments that I have made this year. It is a 3/4 inch by 8 inch piece of paper that I folded in half then curled both sides towards the center... I formed and glued the curls in position, then applied glitter to the face and and added black and silver glitter = so simple, so easy
The best part is that the sheet of Tiffany blue card stock/scrapbook paper cost .25Cents! I always have glue sticks and white craft glue on hand, and the black glitter I bought years ago. So to make 16 of these, I only needed 1 sheet of the card stock! HOW AWESOME IS THAT!!!!
These were super fun to make. I could not find silver card stock in my town. All the ladies at the various scrap-book stores in my town say there is no such thing as silver metallic card stock that is shimmery SILVER ON BOTH SIDES. So I will have to look on the internet for some because next year I want to make these in silver and try out a few more different styles Christmas paper ornaments.
However I may purchase some thick card stock and PAINT IT SILVER with craft paint, that seems to be a more economical and simple solution. I want a shimmery reflective silver, for next year in this design, so I have some time to figure something out ( lol ).
I am linking this to the DIY Showoff,
using tomato cages and pre lit Christmas garlands for a small tree was genius! I am doing this next year!!!!!!!

it costs .25cents for 16 of these swirly drop things = yippee!
