I used a 2 inch scalloped circle punch to cut my variety of circles. If making one bauble cut from 10-15 scalloped circles from the heavy card stock.
Begin gluing each circle half together so the patterned paper shows. Continue gluing just the circle'halves' until all circles are used. Fan all circles out and complete the bauble by gluing the last two circle halves together.
When all glue is dry coat all edges of the scalloped circles with glue. Have your glitter ready by pouring into a quart size zipper plastic bag and toss your ball into the glitter. Seal bag and shake well. remove glittered scalloped ball and let glue dry.
When dry you can make more baubles for stacking in a clear jar for display, or you can string a piece of thread or fishing line through the center whole in the bauble for hanging. If you like you can add beads to the top and bottom of the bauble. This extra step is not shown in the photo.
