3D Glittery Paper Christmas Ornaments

Do any of you ever watch those crafting specials on HSN and want to buy everything? Well I don’t/ can’t actually do that but I do manage to snag some great deals. A big one usually falls on or around my birthday every year, so happy birthday to me! For this past special, I snagged a digital Cricut cartridge called Anna’s Holiday Ornaments which is full of, you guessed it, gorgeous Christmas ornaments. I used it to make these 3D Glittery Paper Christmas Ornaments. These aren’t all of the available patterns by any means, but these all use the same 3D concept she designed. You can grab a copy at HSN but not on Cricut. Also, these ornaments are part of a 12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop and ornaments are the project for the first day, so be sure to see all of the other awesome ornaments down below. Let’s get started!

Be sure to Save it on Pinterest if you want to make it later!

3D Glittery Paper Christmas Ornaments Steps

1. Open a new project in Cricut Design Space. Add an image and search the cartridge list for Anna’s Holiday Ornaments. (After you’ve already linked it.) Select the ornaments you’d like to make, one at a time, and add them to your project. If you want to make several of the same design, you can duplicate them in Design Space.

2. Resize the ornaments to your desired size. I made mine all about 4 inches wide.

3. Select one ornament and copy/ paste it. Repeat for all of the ornaments. You will be making the ornaments two sided so you’ll need a front and a back. The designs are symmetrical so you don’t have to worry about them matching up. Okay, that’s a lie. You’ll need to flip the sleigh one vertically, but just that one.

4. If you will be using different colored glitter cardstock for each design you’ll need to cut each design separately. Over on the right, click the little eyes to hide all of the ones you’re not cutting yet. Select Make It.

5. Select the custom cutting setting for glitter cardstock. Cut and score the ornament on the glitter cardstock, glitter side up.

6. Go back to the edit screen and click the little eyes to select your next ornament and repeat the process for each one.

7. Glue the two matching sides to each other, glitter sides out, with the tacky glue. Make sure to precisely match up the cuts. Let the glue dry completely or the pieces may slide.

This glue is very strong and will dry fast, but since it’s a liquid glue going on paper, you need to use it sparingly and watch for warping. You might want to test on a small sample first. Tape would have left gaps, paper adhesive wouldn’t have been strong enough, and Glue Dots are too thick. Mod Podge might work, though.

8. Take each ornament and fold at the score lines as shown. You’ll want to alternate the rings.

9. Cut enough 12-inch lengths for all of your ornaments and then tie them into loops on each ornament for the hangers.

That’s it! These 3D Glittery Paper Christmas Ornaments are so easy to make even though they look like intricately designed little pieces of art. You could also use some pretty metallic cardstock or other interesting cardstock to make more of these designs. Heck, you could become a regular little ornament factory with your Cricut! The best part is everything you make can be completely customized to your taste and style.
