Becky from North Carolina introduced me to the German bell via the Yahoo Quillers group several years ago… but relax, zero quilling is involved. She suggested using a 5 x 8 inch index card (system card in Australia) because the cardstock weight is just right. So that’s what I used and have to agree… once the bell is finished, no one will ever guess it started as an index card that’s cut down in size to a 5 inch square.

    I have ben looking for this pattern! I made them every year since I was 14 years old for about 30+ years. I made them every year for my daughter’s classmates & for the students in my classroom when I was teaching. I would treats and maybe a little toy inside. I lost the pattern and have been looking for it again, but I just knew it as a paper bell. Thank you for posting this this yearly traditional ornament.
