Making Homemade Paper Christmas Ornaments

You can use a variety of paper and cardstock to make paper Christmas ornaments. The Cricut machine makes it easy to create fancy cut designs to decorate your tree or your entire home for the holidays.

I've created an SVG cut file just for this project. The file includes a number of layers you can mix and match to create all kinds of Christmas projects. You can make different ornaments just changing up which layers you cut. This homemade ornament uses a single cut shape in the set, layered together to create a 3D ornament.

How to Make Paper Ornaments

These paper ornaments can be customized in a number of ways. The most basic idea is to decide on the number of layers you'd like to use. In my example, I used 5 layers, but you can try 3 or even 6.. play with the look to see which you like best.

Instructions

  1. Upload the ornament cut file to Cricut Design Space.
  2. Ungroup and resize the decorative layer you'd like to use. Make sure to set the score line to SCORE in Design Space.
  3. Send the design to the mat. Adjust the cut quantity to cut 5 copies of the design. Arrange on the mat however you'd like.
  4. Fold each cut design along the score line.
  5. Apply glue to one side of a cut shape. Line up the second cut shape, press and hold in place to adhere together.
  6. Repeat until you've applied all the cut shapes into a single 3D ornament.
  7. Applying the twine: You have two options for applying twine to your ornament.
    1. you can simply wrap and tie the twine around the top of the ornament at the neck of the ball shape.
    2. you can add a length of twine to the center of your ornament before gluing the final two sides together. If you choose this method, make sure to create a knot at the top and bottom of the twine so the twine doesn't slip out of the center of the ornament.

  1. Thanks for sharing this file with us; it’s a brilliant design with a LOT of opportunities to be creative!

    Make sure that the readers know that there should be a score icon and not a cut icon on the Design Space for the lines in the middle of the ornament when they get ready to make this.
