Puff-Ball Decoration

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

This little ornament is made from holiday gift paper. First make a pattern on cardboard as shown in the small sketch. This is done by tracing around some circular object that is about 2 inches across, then drawing scallops along the edge of the circle. Cut out this pattern and trace around it on any pretty paper that is stiff but lightweight. Make eight tracings and then cut them out. Now stack the eight papers one on top of another, folding the topmost piece in half and creasing it. Along the crease, sew all the papers together. Now the puff-ball is ready to be opened up as shown. Fasten on a handle made of yarn or ribbon.
