I collect decorative papers all year ‘round as I know I will use them come Christmas.

You will need:


decorative papers

scissors or Xacto Knife

paper glue


  1. Use cookie cutters or online templates to create the shapes.
  2. Take two pieces of decorative paper and glue them together backsides facing one-another so that you have a pretty two sided sheet of paper.
  3. Allow it to dry completely.
  4. Trace your shapes onto your paper.
  5. Carefully cut out the shapes.
  6. Make a tiny hole in the ornament and tie a piece of string to hang.
