Hi all, Jennifer Taylor here. Today I am stopping by to share a fun and easy door decoration for you to try. Once you make this you will want to make them for every holiday like me. I made this with the Carta Bella Baseball Collection from FotoBella.

Grab your Carta Bella Baseball Collection

Here is how I did it:

First, I took four 12 x 12 coordinating pattern papers from the collection, and cut them all in half so that each pattern paper you have to strips paper for each. I then, accordion fold every piece.

I then connected them all together to make one long strip. Next, I took the two ends and glue them together which will form your circular base. Set that aside now and grab a piece of pattern paper. ( Carta Bella papers are so great for this project because they are nice and thick paper to work with)

Cut a Baseball Circle

Cut a 12 inch circle out of this baseball themed paper. Now, the 12 inch circle of cardstock will be your base for holding the strip of accordion circle paper.

I free handed this circle with just scissors cause this will be at the back where no one sees but if you want a perfect circle either trace a large plate and cut it or use a die cutting machine

Now, shape your accordion strip to a circle put down glue on your base . I first used doubled sided adhesive for a temporary hold then followed with hot glue to secure it better. Next, lay it on top .

Now cut a 4 inch circle of a coordinating patterned paper to cover the middle hole and hot it glue down .

Then, I used a phrase thicker from my stash for the center but you can easily add a large diecut from the collection or your stash to finish it off . Finally, hot glue a coordinating ribbon to the top so you can hang it on your door.
