Paper-Stuffed Christmas Ornament



A clear ornament ball stuffed with cut up pages from an old book and sheet music adds a handmade accent to any Christmas tree.

Materials 
Two pages of text from a book (try using a Christmas carol or Christmas story)
Scissors
Clear round glass Christmas ornament
Length of satin ribbon (any colour)

Instructions 
1. Using the scissors cut the text into single-row strips.
2. Remove metal top from ornament. Insert five to seven strips of text into ornament, arranging strips so they line the bowl of the ornament. Shake ornament a few times so strips spread out and settle. 
3. Add another group of strips and arrange as for the first group. Repeat until ornament is full, inserting single strips to fill any open areas. Reattach metal top and hang ornament with ribbon.
