Sometimes the wrapping paper we get is so pretty it is a shame to throw it away. Or if the present is from someone special we may want to save it. This got me thinking...

A while back I made some paper ornaments with tutorial from some zentangles I had made, and wanted to use that idea for this challenge.

Here I have taken wrapping paper and made a paper lantern/ornament. This could be put on a tree, made into a mobile, add many used for a mantle or whatever your imagination can come up with.



Here is the paper used before cutting.


I added pages from and old legal book to have some contrast.


Thanks for looking and if you make any ornaments, please post them!
Good luck to all who enter the challenge. Smiley
