Ann at All Things Paper shows you how to make a folded German bell paper ornament.
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.
