The Steps for How to Make the Easy Christmas Crafts: Paper Circles Ornament:
Select the narrow ribbon.
Measure and cut the ribbon to 12 inches in length.
Measure, mark and cut the strips of paper.
Cut one of each of these sizes:
With the hole punch, make holes in both ends of each strip.
The hole should be 1/4 inch from the end and centered across the strip. Best guess is fine here.
Using the smallest strip of paper, form the first circle and match the holes.
With the next smallest paper strip, add the second circle around the first.
Match the holes.
In increasing size, add the remaining strips of paper forming larger circles each time and matching the holes.
Wrap the ribbon around the outer portion of the Easy Christmas Crafts Paper Circles Ornament and thread the two ends of the ribbon through all of the holes from the inside to the outside.
Pull the ends of the ribbon evenly.
The outer loop of the ribbon should be between the two ends.
Tie a knot near the paper.
The knot encloses the wrapped ribbon and holds the layers together.
Tie a second knot in the ends of the ribbon to form the loop.
Trim the ends of the ribbon if necessary.
The finished Easy Christmas Crafts Paper Circles Ornament is simple yet elegant as a hanging decoration.
