in the loop

Combine the intrigue of old newspaper with the translucence of baking paper and the warmth of brown paper in the charming recycled paper loop ornament. Cut 12 strips of contrasting papers each measuring 2cm x 20cm and layer them together. Staple the strips together in the centre, then fold the ends in the centre and secure each loop to the centre with double-sided tape. Attach coloured thread to hang the loop from the mantlepiece or to the door or tree.
