Right here we go...
All measurements are in inches
Cut 5 pieces of card to 3" x 3"
Papermania "At Christmas Time" stamp set. Any stamp with good fine detail will work really well.
Now for the folds. Work on one square at a time. All the folds are the same for each square.
Fold the square from edge to edge.
Open up and fold edge to edge in the opposite direction you will end up with a cross on the square.
1½” x 1½”. These are your covers for the ornament.
Place your decorated cover over the ribbon. Make sure you think about what way the ornament will hang when unopened as you don't want the words going off at a dodgy angle!!!BDI and they have an amazing variety of beads and findings and of course the most important thing.... a fantastic Coffee Shop :). This silver bead is my absolute favorite for this ornament it just adds a touch of class to it. I make my ribbon a lot longer than I need it so I can cut it to a sharp point to get it through the width of the bead. Push the bead all the way down the ribbon to the top of the ornament.
Your Ornament is done. Here it is closed.
To open it, slide the bead up the ribbon to the knot at the top. Turn the ornament inside out (bring both covers around to meet one another). Slide the bead back down. Your ornament is now open for display.
Below are a couple of other options. You can make this ornament with any shape that will fold exactly edge to edge in all directions for example circles and you can make it any size you want so long as it is the exact same size for all five pieces of card.
This shape is cut from the Xcut Four Petal Nesting Dies.
Enchanted Christmas Holly Fairy from Docrafts.
