striped paper ornaments

It's difficult getting pretty Christmas ornaments nowadays. "Messr. Quality" and "Messr. Affordable" haven't been getting along lately either so I decided to embark on wallet friendly tree decoration style this year (that and the fact that hubby accidentally gave away our box of last year's Christmas ornaments while clearing out the store).

How About Orange's posted a really simple to do and absolutely gorgeous striped paper ornament which I . Perfect since I had some Swarovski crystals I bought a few years back but never used and left over scrap-booking paper from a previous project. Here are the {instructions}. Have fun!
