so ornamental

These German bell ornaments were gifts that I made for very dear friends & teachers this year.

And although Christmas has already passed, I did want to show you how beautiful they turned out & yes! they are oh, so versatile.


Choosing from the tons of fabric, ribbon and beads available everywhere --- well, goodness, you can personalize these to fit just about anyone. The directions can be found here and although the folding seems complicated, just keep thinking 'folding a paper airplane.....'

I love it! Where did you get the paper to fuse to the fabric! What a terrific idea, I think I would love to try.

This is a great folding technique. When I taught 4th graders, we made these in Art class and placed little candies inside to give to favorite teachers, friends, the secretaries, etc.
Great one!
