Does this paper bird ornament sound familiar?

alisandeDecember 14, 2009

Years ago my children and I made paper birds for our Christmas tree. They were a very simple design, very easy to do, and the results were beautiful. Unfortunately, I can't remember where I got the directions.

They were made with strips of paper about 1" wide. I remember the tail was curled in two directions (one strip up, one down), sort of like a large version of quilling, and there must have been something between the top and bottom strips (a circle, maybe?) to hold them apart in the correct shape.

Does this sound familiar to anyone? I'd like to make some for my tree this year.

Thanks!

Susan,
The birds sound cute and I hope you find the pattern and share with all of us. Punk

Check out this wood curl ornament about 1/3rd of the way down the page. Did it look something like this?

Not made of paper, but looks to be very easy.

Thanks for the links, everyone! They don't match what I was looking for, but they're interesting in their own right, and I may give one or more a try.

I didn't look at all the links, hopefully this isn't a duplicate.... and I'd never WEAR it, like in the photo, but it's a cool bird!
