Time required: about 10 minutes to make and a few hours drying time for the glue and the clear gloss paint sealer

Difficulty Level: Easy

Material List:

- scrapbookpaper in decorative Christmas designs
- batting
- glue
- clear gloss paint sealer


1. Cut out Christmas shapes of your choice. For each ornament you will need two. Make sure to cut the second side in reverse.
2. Place one shape with the wrong side up and add glue around the outer edge inside of the shape. Leave one area free of glue until you have added the batting.
3. Place the wrong side of the second shape onto the glue. Let the glue dry.
4. Before closing off, add the batting to stuff the ornamen some. Now close off the remaining opening by adding glue inside of the shape and pressing the edges together.

6. Brush on clear gloss paint sealer to both sides to add a shine to the ornament and to give it the look of metal.
