The easiest craft project I've done recently was paper ornaments. I found a fun tutorial on Howaboutorange's blog. My friend Amber and I had a blast making a few samples from the tutorial. We are hooked and have decided to make these ornaments for every event, activity and holiday possible. They would be perfect for birthday parties, baby showers and even wedding showers. Check out the pictures below.
How they are made. Cut one sheet of paper into 1 inch strips. Stack the strips in a pile on top of one another and staple them together in the middle (long wise). Then fold the strips together to form a book of strips. Fold the strips toward the center and tape them down using double sided tape. The tutorial on Howaboutorange explains it better and with pictures. http://howaboutorange.blogspot.com/
