And Cut!

Step 2: For best results, use 4 strips of paper for each bauble.

Level the cut up strips of paper and fold in half to create a central crease.

This will be used as a marker for the next step!

Step 3: Take a split pin and pierce it through each piece of paper via the crease made in Step 2.

Spread the pieces of paper to form an even ‘snowflake shape’ as shown above.

Step 4: Starting from the bottom of the pile, join the two ends of the paper strip.

Step 5: Continue the process of adjoining the paper ends, layering the paper on top of the previous.

TIP: A glue stick is perfect for this process. It will not leave the paper soggy or heavy and is plenty ‘sticky’ enough to hold the bauble together!

Step 6: Secure a piece of thread to the head of the split pin and finish off with a few threaded beads!
