Download, print and cut out the pattern pieces below. Set the peace sign aside momentarily.
On a new piece of paper, print out the words “Peace on Earth” as many times as desired, making it proportional to the tag pattern size. Lay your pattern down on top of each set of words, tracing around the outside of the tag with a pencil. Once you have traced around all of your sets, cut them out. Punch a hole in the tip (the arrow tip), insert and set in place an eyelet. Punch an additional hole in the back of each tag, just above where the tails make a point in the back. Set these aside.
Take out your peace sign pattern and trace it onto your mat board. Cut this out with your craft knife.
Select the prints you would like for the outside of your ornaments. Use your mat board peace sign as a template to trace two pieces of printed paper for your ornament. Note: be sure to trace around the outside and inside of the ornament as you will want to cut out the middle sections to match your template. Cut these out and adhere them, one to each side, with the prints facing out.
Embellish the ornaments with rhinestones around the face of the peace signs. Using the image as a reference, attach the smaller ribbon to the top, slip the “Peace on Earth” tag onto the ribbon, and tie off the ribbon by making a loop large enough to hang it from the tree. With each ornament, attach a jingle bell to your jump ring and thread it around the ribbon. Finish with a bow on the top.
Repeat as desired.
