Holiday Happy

I've been listening to Christmas music and making ornaments. Lots and lots of ornaments. It's been a great evening activity over the past few weeks. A couple of movies/tv shows, a little music, a mega paper-cutter, and a lot of patience.

They are really easy to make if you have a paper cutter and time. Cut your paper longways into 1/2" strips. If you want the curls to hold better, curl each strip with scissors. Then wrap each strand into tight curls. I used washi tape and duct tape rollers to hold the spirals tight until it was time to put them in the ornaments. Then I stuffed the ornaments!
