How to Make DIY Paper Christmas Decorations:
When creating a bauble shape using your honeycomb paper, remember that the lines on the paper should be horizontal as you work. Begine by creating a semi-circle template (if you wish to create a spherical bauble) and draw around this.
If you are creating a bauble or snowball with a diameter greater than 7cm, cut out this shape twice from your honeycomb tissue paper.
Once fully cut-out, carefully unfold your shape by gentle pulling from either end of the layered honeycomb sheet.
Next, add lines of double-sided tape onto one of your semi-circles of honeycomb paper. These lines must overlap the straight edge of the semi circle as shown – you can use the straight lines in the paper to help guide your application!
Now, place your two semi-circles beside one another to form an entire circle. Turn the circle over, and add double sided tape in exactly the same way as you did before.
Now, remove the top protective layer of the double sided tape, and fold the circle over to complete your sphere!
That’s your first decoration complete… but don’t let it be your last! There’s a whole variety of gorgeous DIY Paper Christmas Decorations you can create using this fantastic honeycomb paper – the only limit is your imagination!
