INSTRUCTIONS:

  • Print the ornament on cardstock, my go-to paper is Canon Matte Photo Paper (160g)
  • Score on all the vertical lines and accordion fold
  • Glue the pieces back-to-back, to create a 3D ornament (I use an ordinary glue stick for this)
  • Cut out the 4 sides
  • You might want to subtly ink the edges, to avoid seing the white paper…
  • To hang, either punch a hole and insert ribbon, or sandwich the ribbon in the middle when glueing the pieces together
  • Optional: I used spray glue and glittered the whole ornament for some grand seasonal sparkle 🙂
  • Optional: For some of my ornaments I also glued glass glitter on the edges. I used silver, and gold, and even pearl for some, which gives a beautiful frosted look. If you opt for glittered edges, you can skip the inking 😉
  • TADAH: you have a lovely 3D ornament to decorate your tree, or hang in a window 🙂
