I know that last Christmas, I figured I'd be making those miniature mitten ornaments this year. And I did make one, but I also made one of these paper ornaments from How About Orange.
When I showed the two options to Caleb, he chose the paper spaceship. So that's what I made this year. After making a dozen or so green-and-white ones, I realized that with 18 strips of paper, I could do 9 stripes each of 2 colors, or I could do 3 stripes each of 6 colors. (Huzzah for math!) You know what that means: rainbows!
I made just over 30 of these ornaments. Most of them are either rainbow or green-and-white, but there are a couple blue-and-white ones and pink-and-white ones, plus one super-special pink-and-blue one (I had leftover paper strips). They are so easy to make and I could work on them while I watched a show or movie.
I read some of the comments on the project, so I chose to string an inch of drinking straw inside to help it keep its shape.
It wouldn't be Christmas with Leah without rainbows, right? :)
They really do look like spaceships, though.
