Paper Photo Ornament Keepsake – step by step instructions!

You can make these paper bauble using 6-8 “paper discs” / Photos. Normally, I like to use “more”.. but with these photo baubles, I love “less”, so that you can see the photos better!

Make a paper circle template (we used a glass). Cut out six colourful pieces of paper.

Measure your circles.

Prepare your photos – make sure that they are smaller than your colourful paper. I made sure that there is 1 cm rim.

Print them off.

Glue your photos onto your siz circles.

Fold your circles in half.

Glue on half to the next half.

Add all the 6 halves together, until you have a stack of circles.

Cut a piece of string for hanging.

Add glue to the top and bottom of your stack. Align your string.

Then bring the bottom half of the circle flip it over and glue to the top one.

You now have a photo bauble.

Your keepsake Photo Ornament is finished. Enjoy!
