These ornaments make a great gift for co-workers and friends. They are easy to make and can be paired up with the Christmas tags (see my other Project for instructions). I made twenty of these for co-workers and plan to hand them out at our Christmas party in two weeks.

Project Cut Files

STEP-BY-STEP How-TO INSTRUCTIONS

The cut file contains two layers for each ornament - one is a base layer which is the Ornament Blackout shape and the other is the Ornament shape with the cut out design. The base layer will have two shapes to cut and the other layer will have four. Cut all shapes on both layers for the ornaments you wish to create using heavy card stock. I used glimmer and glitter stock to give my ornaments a special Christmas sparkle.
Glue the two base layer shapes to each other, back to back as pictured below.
Using your ruler and scoring bone, score a fold line along the long axis of each of the four shapes as pictured below.
Using your bone, crease the fold, being careful to line up the designs.
Glue one half of one cut out shape to the other half of the second cut out shape. You will end up with two cut out shapes with a 3D side and a flat side that can be glued to the base shape.
Glue both cut out shapes to the base shape being careful to align the edges. This is your final step and will create a 3D ornament that can now be embellished and hung on your tree. Use floral wire to create a loop and add a Christmas tag and you are done!

I hope you enjoy making these ornaments and get as much pleasure from gifting them to friends and colleagues as I did.

Step 6

Glue both cut out shapes to the base shape being careful to align the edges. This is your final step and will create a 3D ornament that can now be embellished and hung on your tree. Use floral wire to create a loop and add a Christmas tag and you are done!
