The Steps for How to Make the Easy Christmas Crafts: Paper Doily Greeting Card Ornament:
Fold the paper doily in half with the wrong sides together.
Fold the paper doily to form an arc.
Bring each folded edge up to meet in the middle of the semicircular shape.
Press the folded edges firmly.
Place the folded doily arc on the greeting card to help you decide what scene you want to show.
There should be enough of the scene peeking out of the top of the ornament to add decoration and to tease people into wanting to see more.
Once the scene is chosen, mark along the edges of the angle on the face of the greeting card.
Cut along the pencil lines to form the bottom of the greeting card insert.
Next, cut around the top of the scene.
The top can follow the scene on the card, can be a semi-circular shape (see mouse below) or can be some other shape (see winter scene below).
Measure and cut the ribbon.
Two 9-inch lengths are needed for the Easy Christmas Crafts Paper Doily Greeting Card Ornament.
Thread the first ribbon through holes in the paper doily decoration on either side of the front closure.
Being careful not to pull the ribbon ends too tightly, form a bow on the front of the paper doily decoration.
Thread the second ribbon through two adjacent holes in the back of the paper doily arc.
Tie a simple knot in the second ribbon's ends to form the hanging loop.
The Easy Christmas Crafts Paper Doily Greeting Card Ornament is finished and ready to hang.
