To make this ornament, find the free Cricut template here.  You can adjust the size of the shapes in the Design Space if you’d like to.  And then follow regular Cricut procedure -use a sticky mat, adhere your card stock to it, load the paper, and make sure your machine is set for card stock.  For this project you need to make sure to use the scoring tool first, it will then signal you to change to the cutting blade (for the Cricut Explore Model).

Once your ornament is all cut out, remove it from the mat.  The Cricut will score and cut the paper for you, and all you have to do is fold it along the scored lines and glue it together.  I found hot glue is the quickest and easiest way to glue them.  For ornaments, while you’re gluing it together also hot glue a piece of clear thread in a loop to hang it from when it’s all finished.

After that I spray painted some metallic colours, I found it was much cheaper to spray paint the finished ornament made from regular card stock, than buy special card stock, especially if you have some spray paint on hand.  I also added a little glitter, since it’s Christmas and you know we love a little glitter around here.

They’d also be great as gift toppers or table decor for the holidays.  You could make them in any colour to fit your Christmas decor -but this year I’m still loving the mixed metals.

  8. Smart! I thought you had purchased the pricey glitter cardstock. I think you need the deep cut blade to cut that too!

  9. I think it’s genius that you spray-painted the cardstock! And I just love how you used the glitter, too!!! These are really amazing, and totally something I would buy at a store!!

  10. Thanks Thalita, you should make some too, they’re pretty easy.
