Ornament 1


Head over to the Paper Ornament file and click customize now. Once the file opens up it’s ready to cut and all you have to do is click the green cricut button. I chose to only use one shape of the ornaments and chose to leave it plain and not add on a bow or mistletoe to keep it more my style. I removed all the other pieces I wouldn’t be using and headed over to the cut setting. Since I was only do one shape ornament I only had to do two cuts using 2 sheets of my favorite glittered paper.

Since I chose to use glittered cardstock I turned my cut dial to cardstock + and I got the smoothest cut possible for that paper.

Once the cuts are complete remove the paper from the mat and start folding your ornaments on all of the scoring lines. Using the folded tabs gently apply a small amount of adhesive glue and start gluing the ornament together. It will be a total of 2 pieces to create one gorgeous paper ornament.

The assembly of the ornament took a total of 15 minutes and it turned out beautiful. Once I completed the ornament I poked two small holes through the top and fed through some pretty silver string so that it can easily be hung from the Christmas tree.
