10 Days of Photo Ornaments- Day 10 a Spinning Christmas Ball

Well, we are at the last day of our photo ornaments- this has been so much fun.

Our last ornament is an easy one, a series of strips that form a spinning Christmas ball with a photo dangling inside.
5- 1/2 x 12 strips of double sided patterned paper
18" or twine or thin ribbon
2 brads
2 wallet sized photos (2x3)
2" metal rim tag or 2 1/4- 2 1/2" circle punched from cardstock

Stack all of the strips up, punch a hole using a cropadile through all layers at the center point.

Insert brad through hole.

Punch a hole in each end of the strip through all layers.
Insert brad through all layers on one end of strip, bend the strips into a circle and insert the rest of the strips onto the brad. The strips should form a circle.

Punch out photo with a 2" circle punch. Adhere to tag or cardstock circle. Punch a hole in the top and tie 6" of twine to tag.

Wrap twine around backside of brad and tie so tag will hang in the center of the circle.
Carefully move strips into a star pattern around circle.
Tie remaining twine to the top brad as a hanger.
We hope you have a Very Merry Christmas!
