These aerial ornaments are a breeze to make. Cut a card into thin strips about 20 approximately. Pile the strips and punch holes through both ends with a punch hole. Insert a paper fastener into each hole. Bend the pile into a C shape facing outwards, and move the strips apart so they spread out to form a globe. To string it up, take decorative thread and wind it around the paper fastener several times starting from the middle, then knot ends.
Two circles fit closely together to form one ornament. Cut two disks of identical size from a card using a circle punch or drawing a round object and cutting with scissors. Cut a slit halfway across each circle. In one circle, punch a hole near the border opposite the cut with a punch hole. Hold the disks so that the slits face each other. Slide the slit of one disk all the way into the other, thread string through the hole, and tangle them. Finally color them with some holiday colors and let them dry so that you can hang them on your Christmas tree or the doors or murals.

Glue all 60 flaps together to form a ball. Punch hole in top and thread with a thread to hang. You can use a glue-glitter pen to make holiday designs on the ball ornament.
