How to Make a Paper Christmas Ornament

Today I’m going to show you a simple craft to make a Christmas Ornament out of paper and ribbon.  And, keep in mind…. just because the craft is a simple one does not mean that the ornament will look simple when done.  As a matter of fact, the ornament turns out to be quite beautiful.  So, let’s get started.
