DIY Paper Ball Ornaments!

Howdy folks! Why does it seem like time speeds up after Thanksgiving? Is it just me? I spent most of the day picking away at card elements for my mass produced handmade Christmas cards and I think I may have developed carpel tunnel syndrome from stamping and punching…stamper tunnel syndrome…huh, I think I just coined a new phrase LOL! Well, if you have to oomph to punch some papers into circles you can make these cute ornaments:

This is a project that I am making with children at the library tomorrow. These macaroni angels are easy! I am pre-gluing them so the kids can paint and decorate them. Here is a video to show you how:

Other than the macaroni I have odds and ends leftover from craft fair projects. The craft fair was a huge success  You can read all about it and see my booth set-up on this post.
