(Every week until December 1st we will be making a small Christmas ornament that can be used in our Pocket Advent Calendar. Join us in making all 24 or just pick and choose your favorites.)
This week I am traveling to help my mom and dad out while my dad has a hip replacement, so I’ve asked our friend Dr. Russ at NY Star Cards to come up with this week’s advent calendar ornament. Of course, he went above and beyond and created two! Dr. Russ is a master when it comes to paper crafts, so his ornaments are made from pretty decorative papers.
The cool thing about these ornaments is that they are flat when you put them in the calendar and then they are opened by the recipient to get their finished shape.
Visit NY Star Cards to get the detailed instructions to make both of these, the Onion Dome and the Paper Ball. I can’t wait to try my hand at them when I get home.
By the way, Dr. Russ will be doing ornaments for us two more times before we fill our calendar.
