Paper Strip Ornament Mobile



Need a super easy craft for this afternoon?? I've got it!  Paper Strip Ornaments!!
I hosted playgroup at my house and I just can't not do something crafty when there's a group gathered.  Several people claim to be non-crafty, so I knew I needed a project that anyone could do.  This was it -- all it requires are strips of paper and a stapler - easy!!  I saw the idea over at DesignSponge, where you'll find the tutorial:

The fun of creating in groups - - first off, Kate was working on a different project for the craft competition she's in - - but crafting had her all kinked up (I guess we're getting old!) and couch-bound to stretch out - -
Maybe half a dozen of us made the paper ornaments - easy and fun, and just used scrap paper - - a win win all around.
I know most people were going to use them on their tree.  I wanted to make a garland, but then loved the idea on DesignSponge so much that I decided to hang them over my dining room table.  Kind of tricky to take pictures because it's right in front of a mirror - see:
I wish you could come on over and see these hanging for their full in-person effect - I love them!!
And really, YOU CAN do this!!  grab some paper and a stapler and friends or kids, and get to crafting!!
