Paper Christmas ornaments are so easy to make and they are gorgeous once you add details with the scoring wheel. I actually did a post yesterday with an ornament that was made from scored mat board. But, y’all, the scoring wheel has become my new BFF. There are so many possibilities with this thing! Don’t forget to scroll to the bottom of this post and see all of the other Cricut crafts from this week’s series. You don’t want to miss ’em!
Supplies needed to make these paper Christmas ornaments:
Some links below may be affiliate links which means that you do not pay anymore, however, a portion of your purchase will go to this site.
- Cricut Machine (either the Maker or Explore will work) (click here to see which one I prefer)
- Scoring wheel (click here to learn more)
- Metallic paper
- Tape runner
- Cricut cut file (click here to access)
Start by clicking here to access the cut file and cutting your ornaments with your Cricut machine. Use either the scoring wheel or stylus to make the score lines. I used the scoring wheel but I was inspired by these cute boxes over at Simply Crafted Life and she used the stylus. So, it should work with either tool. Carefully remove the mat from the back of your ornament pieces to minimize curling.
Then use a tape runner to put two of the pieces back to back. Add on a piece of twine for hanging.
And just that easily you have some paper Christmas ornaments for your tree.
I love the scored details of these and I can’t wait to add them to my tree this year.
They look so elegant and no one will ever guess how easy they are to make.
Grab some metallic paper and get started creating these gorgeous paper Christmas ornaments for your tree and holiday decor.
I must say that scoring all the things has become an obsession for me. I keep thinking of new things to try!
So, y’all stay tuned as there is no telling what I will score next!
