I know it is thanksgiving for many of our readers, but if we want to get christmas decorations out, we better start now!! Here is a quick and easy idea for christmas ornaments. I used papers from Kiki's Boy you are a dreamer (green) and Clear Nights Blue Sky. Look at how rich and gorgeous this red is.  I thought it made a perfect christmas red.  

I used a punch to cut the largest circle I had which is 1 3/4 but you can cut any size you want.  Don't mind the color, you can see how pretty it is from my first picture.
I folded the pieces together.


I attached several of the folded circles together and used a stapler to hold them.  You can cover up the staple or if you have colored staples, that would be good as well.   I inked the sides if there was any white showing.

On my ornaments, I used different elements to embellish them. I used stickles glitter product and a glass bead at the bottom. (If you use a stick pin, you can use it to hold it on and just glue the pin. ) I also used buttons and ribbon


These were quick and easy- the longest part was waiting for the stickles to dry.
