Make simple beautiful Christmas ornaments from old gift wrapping. All you need is old gift wrapping paper and Makedo re-pins and re-clips available at mymakedo.com.

This project was designed by Tanaka Satoshi, Makedo’s master maker from Japan.

Step 1: Find

Source old wrapping paper left over from gifts. For this project each ornament requires 2 Makedo re-pins and re-clips.
How do you get such perfectly round holes?<br> When I poke a sharp object through piece of paper it does not look like this, this looks like a paper punch.
Hi, for delicate materials i sometimes use a hole puncher. But for think pieces of card and plastics i use the Makedo safe-saw.
Before you can punch this hole, don't you have to cut the ends off even?
Hi, yes you can trim off the ends to make it even or you can create another loop below it just like the ornament in the background. :)
How do you go from the 5 strips in a previous step to the nine I see here?
Hi there, <br>Sorry i will fix the instructable, It should be 9 strips for this one rather than 5 strips for a simpler one. :)
Cute! I like how you used the marbles to space them out!
Very similar to your last <a href="http://www.instructables.com/id/Christmas-ornament-1/" rel="nofollow">ornament</a>&nbsp;- but very pretty.
