CHRISTMAS IN JULY - Day 12



Today's post features this beautiful handmade kissing ball size
Vintage Candy Cane Swirl Large Paper Lantern.

This is an One of a Kind large lantern size origami ornament made with Cosmo Cricket patterned paper, vintage red and blue, reminiscent of peppermint swirl candies. Paper is acid & lignin free. Each ornament is approximately 12" high from top to bottom of tassel with a coordinating 1/8" white satin ribbon loop to hang from (approx. 4 1/2"), finished with a gold filigree cone. A large gold bead flanked by red silver lined glass beads adorn a handmade red embroidery floss tassel. Each ornament is hand crafted - the paper form alone is 7" tall - kissing ball size; can be hung alone or in clusters. Each ornament comes with a recycled handmade gift box for storage.


I love making dimensional paper creations. There is a joy and zen quality about them when completed. What makes this ornament so special is the attention to detail, including handmade tassel and finishing touches...a true labor of love.

Check back tomorrow for more holiday ideas...What holiday crafts have you been doing this summer???
