What Paper Can I use for Paper Ornaments?
The best answer, any paper you like! The key is the glue but we will get to that in a minute!
You can use cardstock, scrapbooking paper, double sided patterned paper, construction paper or printer paper for that matter!
The key is to not use a liquid glue but a tape runner if using a lighter weight paper! I prefer the tape runner over liquid glue with all the paper selections above. It will keep it from wrinkling and keeps a tight hold.

Either by hand or by using your cutting machine, cut 8 ornament pieces and 1 ornament cap strip.

Using a tape runner, add adhesive to one side of the ornament and glue to a second half of an ornament. Continue until you have 8 folded ornaments stacked.

Cut a strip of twine or string and hot glue it in the center of the ornament.

Glue the 1st ornament half to the last (8th) ornament half creating a sphere.
