Step 1: Punch out no less than 10 circles. For thick paper use fewer loops. For slim paper (machine paper) utilize more circles.

Step 2: Fold every circles into equal parts and polish with the bone folder.

Step 4: Cut your twine (or lace) more than twice the length of the diameter of your circles. Overlay fifty-fifty and tie a knot at the bottom. Put it in the stack of circles. Glue the first and last circle parts to one another so the ornament wraps around the twine. The knot keeps the twine from sliding through.
