Use up your old greetings cards by turning them into these beautiful decorations to hang on your Christmas tree.
You will need
• old Christmas cards
• paper glue
• thin ribbon or string
On the cards, trace around the base of a jar to draw 21 equal-sized circles. Cut them out.
On one of the circles, draw an equilateral triangle, ensuring each point touches the circle’s edge, and cut out.
Use this triangle as a template and trace onto the back of the rest of the circles. Fold along all lines.
Glue the flaps of five of the circles together (meeting at a central point) to form the top of the bauble. Repeat to form the bottom of the bauble.
Glue the remaining 10 circles together so that they form a long line, then glue the ends together – this will be the bauble’s middle ring.
Glue the top and bottom to the middle ring. Pierce the bauble with a needle and thread through a thin ribbon or string.
