Gather your supplies.
Using your Westcott CarboTitanium Narrow Body Trimmer cut the paper into one-inch strips (using five strips per ornament). Make two strips seven inches, two that are six inches, and one that is five inches.
Stack strips together and line up the top edges. Staple one-inch down to leave room for a hole-punched twine handle.
On the opposite end, line up all the different length strips so they meet. The ornament will then take shape. Secure with another staple.
Next, punch a hole in the top and cut the twine with your Westcott 8” Design Line Scissors. Last, tread the twine through the hole and hang for all to see!
