I’ve also included this PDF that has templates for all the shapes I’m using for this weeks ornaments—star, hearts, birds, gingerbread man and a stocking template. This PDF is for Personal Use Only, as are all the patterns and templates given throughout this week! Print it out on cardstock and use them as patterns for your ornaments.
*Patterned papers *Plain White Cardstock *Scoring tool (scoring board, bone folder, or stylus) *Hot glue gun *ribbon or twine (loop for the ornament) *glitter (optional)
1. Cut stars however big or small you want them—mine are about 4" to 6" –using a template, die cutting machine, or electronic cutter. (I used my Cricut and Sure-Cuts-A-Lot program)
3. Fold on each line. First, fold each line with wrong-sides of the paper together.
4. Then fold the short lines between points in the opposite direction to give your star dimension.
I inked the edges to give them a little more dimension.
Now you can experiment with other paper ornaments like stockings or birds.
Fun, yes? These are pretty quick, so it’s a good one if you need to make some filler ornaments for your tree.
