When you pull out your ornaments each year to put on your tree, which ones are the ones you treasure? Is it the ones in the multipack from the big-box store or the ones that were handcrafted by either yourself or by friends and family? I would venture to say that the handcrafted ornaments are the ones that earn prime limb space on your tree each year! Handcrafted, DIY ornaments also make the perfect gift and can be used as holiday decor throughout your home while costing a fraction of those sold in stores. From whimsical to minimal, there is a paper DIY ornament on this list that is sure to fit your style and holiday budget.
For The Birds: From the traditional calling bird to wise little owls, try creating and adding a feathered friend to your tree this year!
Christmas is a Ball: Fun and festive takes on the tried and true ball ornament. You will want to make extras of these ornaments to give as gifts or to fill a bowl with for a seasonal centerpiece.
Making Modern Merry: If you are taking a more minimal approach to decorating this year, then these simple tutorials are for you.
I’m Dreaming of a Green Christmas: Upcycled DIY ornaments tied up with string, these are a few of my favorite things!

I started scrapping in 2006 and was quickly addicted!I was an avid scrapper until late summer of 2010 when we started our adoption journey, at that point I was overwhelmed with paperwork (and emotions!) and I had to put something on the back burner in my life but I knew I would eventually come back to it.
We welcomed our daughter home from China in December of 2011 and a few months later I found my groove again and pulled out all of those supplies that had been tucked away.
I started out scrapping again doing traditional layouts, but at the beginning of this year I jumped into Project Life and I love it!
When I’m not scrapping I am usually spending time with our daughters which means library time, going on walks, thrifting (they love it as much as I do!) or watching Kung Fu Panda for the millionth time.I also have an Etsy shop Panda Eight Designs where I sell scrapbooking flair that I design.
