I had good intentions today.
Intentions to get all the washing done, to weed the garden and to get some tasks finished that have been hanging over my head for way too long.
I had good intentions today, then school rang and I had to go pick up my unwell boy, and then garlic needed to be dug up, and then the washing machine (which has been on it’s last legs for a while now) finally karked it full of clothes and water…
All my good intentions flew out the window, and I sat down and made some paper Christmas decorations instead.
If you have good intentions to ignore and would like to make some of these, of course I am sharing the free printable.
They are really easy to make, just cut out the shapes (the circles are sized for a 2 inch circle punch if you happen to have one), fold them down the middle and glue or tape them together.
I used five stars to make the star decorations, and experimented with four and six circles to make circular one. I printed mine on semi gloss photo paper (because that is all I had) and found that scoring them down the middle made them much easier to get a good crisp fold which helps when it comes to sticking them together.
Thread a string through the centre and tie off the bottom with a large knot. I added some pony beads that we had lying around for a little extra colour.
Now they are hanging on our tree along with all the other crazy decorations we have!
