Paper Ornaments

Get creative with artist Tracy Gorman and make beautiful hanging ornaments from paper that you have at home. You can also use the paper made in Tracy’s previous workshop ‘Marbled Paper’, otherwise old magazine or junk mail or crafting paper will also work well. You’ll be shown how to make a paper lantern and then a paper fan.

What you’ll need:
Some string or yarn
Some buttons
A pair of scissors
A glue stick

A pencil
A ruler
A needle to thread the buttons (optional)

Length of activity: 35min video but if completing both activities this will take longer.
