Ornaments with Paper and Words

Circles with words to make Christmas ornaments.

 I wrote words with acrylic ink and my trusty sumi brush on thick off-white watercolor paper. 
No specific order or reason, I just went with what came to mind for words.

 I cut the circles using Marvy Uchida paper punch tools. I thought I would just have a word tree but then decided to add patterned black and patterned red paper for accent. I used scrap booking paper. Because the ornaments may twirl I added a color on the back of each piece of either solid red or black paper. I did not glue the solid piece, I just hole punched the same size pieces, one solid, one decorative before threading the embroidery floss to be used for hanging the paper ornament.

I am off to finish making more ornaments. Christmas Handmade continues.
Thank you for stopping by.
