Hanmade paper baubles

Have you finished decorating yet?! If not all is well these are quick to make and effective for any window, mantle piece or to hang.
 Cut stripes of paper or card, equal size. For each bauble you will need 8-12 stripes.
Punch a hole in both ends.  
 Stack them on top of each other.
Add a paper fastner to them all, don't close it tightly, you can tighten it later when its in place.
 Bend it slightly, this will help with bring the stripes around.
 Add some thread to one fastener. Make it into a circle...
 then slowly start to bring each stripe out. Put them equal spacing and then tighten your fastener.
 And then choose where you want to hang them.
 I made three to hang together for one window.
Try an old christmas card. I particuarly like this one.
Have fun
