 Paper Decoration
Dear friends Thank you so much for the sweet support on my Paper Pyramid Tutorial.I had made 2 extra pyramids for that tutorial and we used them to make easy Paper decorations .

My daughter and I made these diamond shaped shaped paper decorations using 2 pyramids.Check this link on How to make a paper pyramid
Diamond ornament
These paper ornaments are super easy to make. Stick 2 pyramids together at the base.

And you get a diamond shaped paper ornament!
Paper decoration tutorial
Our glue smeared paper diamond didnt look  so cute so we stuck pattern paper on it to pretty it up. The base of our pyramids are 2 x 2 inch squares and to cover the diamond we used 8 triangles made from of 2 x 2 inch squares of pattern paper. 
Paper decoration tutorial
To get the perfect sized triangles to cover your diamond ornament:Mark the midpoint of one side of the 2 x 2 inch square and cut from this point to both bottom corners of the square to get a triangle which will perfectly cover the side of your paper diamond ornament.

I didnt like the gap between the pyramids so stuck a Hello Kitty ribbon on the center of our paper diamond decoration.

My little one had a lot of fun sticking Christmas themed stickers on each face of our paper ornament .To add to the festive look we added glittery pom pom balls on the tips of our paper diamond decoration.

These easy DIY paper decorations can be made in all sizes and themes and would look just awesome to showcase family photos. 
Another idea is If you hoard stickers like me these paper ornaments would be a fun way to use up some of that sticker stash!

  7. How cute! What a wonderful little ornament!!! So many wonderful options with these. And I love how you said "if you hoard stickers like me". Too funny! I don't hoard stickers but I do have a whole "collection" of things I do hoard! Funny thing is I don't like a lot of clutter or a lot of things laying around my house but when it comes to my "studio" I can't part with anything! I even hoard the cards I make! LOL!!!

  13. The pyramid hanging decoration is cute. The Hello Kitty ribbon is a wonderful. Hubby & I enjoyed the Greek Festival in Dallas yesterday. Left just in time before it started to rain which we need.
