I used Minion theme to decorate my Christmas tree this year.
As part of that theme I created paper banana ornaments and paper garland that you can make yourself!


So I found these adorable keychains from capsule toys from Walmart while back (I did keep buying them until I collected them all so I have few doubles). I had them hang on my cork board as decoration then an idea came up that I can use these as Christmas ornaments! These graphical minions are my favorite style.



Papercraft Banana Ornaments:
I made this from 3D program and textured quickly in Photoshop. Please use 8.5x11 cardstock in quality print job. Document size will print at 8x10.

It's about 3.5cm height when it's finished.

Materials:
- Banana papercraft DOWNLOAD HERE  (makes 18 ornaments) : http://www.yukikotsu.com/extra/PAPERCRAFT_banana01.jpg
- Scissors
- Gluestick
- Thread
- Needle


Step 1:
Print out papercraft of the banana ornaments. Cut out all the patterns and glue them together. Let it dry.



Step 2:
You have 2 options.
  Option 1 : Use Black sewing thread and thread through tip of the banana and make a knot. I did this method so the thread won't be visible when I hang them.
  Option 2 : If you want the thread to be visible, you can use thicker strings and glue gun the string on back side of the banana.



Paper Garland:
This is easy peasy paper garland you can make with any kind of cardstock paper and mindlessly sititch across with a sewing machine.

Material:
- Color Paper
- Scissors
- Sewing Machine


Step 1:
Cut paper into strip about 1cm. Then cut into square. *It doesn't have to be perfect square.


Step 2:
With sewing machine, place one square under the needle to start. At slow pace, put next square under the foot and keep doing this until you run out squares.

*The gap between squares aren't perfectly measured. So it's ok to randomize that part.
