Christmas bauble

I got this idea from

http://blog.thenest.ie/2014/12/09/craft-advent-9-paper-baubles/

They looked so pretty that I had to try them out.

Here’s how I got on.

String

2 Beads

What I did

I traced around a cup to make a circle on the card.

Folded the card over several times so that I could cut out lots of circles in one go.

Cut out 8 circles and folded them in half.

Next i glued half of each circle to another like so…

I continued to glue each half to the next circle.

Next i looped the string and slid two beads on.One for the top of the bauble and one for the bottom.

I placed the string in the centre of the circles before I added the final one.

Then I glued the last circle on and it was finished.

A beautiful simple bauble.
