Rolled magazine pages are a classic recycled crafting resource, there’s just so much you can do with them! After you’ve rolled up a page or two it only takes a few minutes to glue them together and create unique ornaments like these! In fact since it took me less than 15 minutes to put these two together they’re the perfect Craft Lightning – Holiday Edition Series project!
- Paper cutter or scissors
- hot glue
- tape runner
First up, cut a couple magazine pages into two inch wide strips.
Next up fold and/or roll the strips so that instead of being two inches wide, they’re barely half an inch. Below I’m using the tape runner to hold the folds together, it’ll make things easier down the road.
Once you’re strips are all folded up you can roll them them into circles and/or create Vs like the one below.
Now, using your hot glue gun, start putting them together in whatever pattern you fancy.
A word of caution, these pieces can get heavy if you put too many together, resister the urge to go BIG!
Once you’re done creating your design simply glue the ribbon to the back. Now you’re ready to hang in on the tree or use it to decorate a gift!
