These measurements are based on a 60mm bauble, if you are using larger or smaller baubles measure the diameter to determine the length of paper needed, and the height (centre top around the curve to centre bottom) to find the height needed. Always cut the paper slightly bigger, you can always cut any excess away.

  1. Cut a piece of decoupage paper measuring approx. 19.5 x 10 cm. Cut 3 cm long notches at the top and the bottom along the width of the paper. (NB: Nothches are made for the paper to be attached evenly around the bauble.
  2. Cut away the tip of the points along the width that you want attached nearest the collar of the bauble.
  3. Apply decoupage glue with a brush around the bauble (like a waist band) and attach the paper.
  4. Apply decoupage glue to the rest of the bauble at the top. Use the brush to bend the paper points evenly close to the collar of the bauble.
  5. Repeat at the opposite end and leave the bauble to dry.
  6. Apply a coat of decoupage glue all over the bauble and leave it to dry.
