Paper Sheet Music Bird Ornaments
HERE. You can print them out onto decorative paper, but I decided to print out only one and use it as the template and then traced the bird shape onto decorative cardstock so that I could get several birds per sheet of cardstock..
After I cut them out I ran them through the
Xyron and then laid the adhesive side onto
Vintage Sheet music I had scanned.
(click HERE to save and download a
copy of the sheet music.)
Once the sheet music and cardstock were adhered I cut around the bird shape and then added silver glitter glue. I just used the cheap glitter glue found in the craft section at the store. You can use German glitter glass or any loose glitter. I think I would have preferred the sprinkle glitter because the glitter glue took FOREVER to dry!
After they were Finally dry I punched two small
holes to tie the jingle bell on for the eye and
for the hanging ribbon.
Upcycled Starbuck's Bird Ornaments
Again with these I used the bird template I had previously
printed out (see link above) and traced around it on
on a open coffee sleeve from Starbucks (see below)
then finished it off by embellishing them.
For the last 4 or 5 years I have been using Starbuck's Christmas coffee sleeves to make cards and other projects with. I actually look forward to seeing what each year's sleeves look like. They usually have a saying on the front that will lend itself well to making it into a Christmas card. Click HERE to view some past projects using Starbuck's coffee sleeves.
paper coffee cup to make a paper bird ornament.
I just cut the cup down the seam, tore off the
bottom and traced the bird onto the cup then cut.
