3D Christmas Ornament

Angie over at Chic 'n Scratch has this great video making a 3D Christmas Ornament which is just beautiful, click HERE for Angie's link to the video.  Well I don't have the SU stamp set nor the ornament framelits but I wanted to make this ornament right away, so I designed one using the ornament svg from SVG Cuts Rockin Around the Christmas Tree collection.  I only had white tulle so I used white and gold paper, next time I'd like to try green and cranberry, gorgeous.

The measurements for the larger ornament is 2.194 x 2.577, using the same ornament I made the smaller one 1.292 x 2.202, make sure keep proportions is unchecked.  I welded 5 large ornament pieces to a circle so the bottom layer was one piece and only used 15 larger ornaments instead of the 20, but you can make it the same way Angie did in her video.   I also put a score line down the centers before I duplicated the ornaments so it only took a minute to fold all of them after they were cut.  For the center cut around the button I used a punch but I'm going to work on a border piece so I can just cut it out on my machine next time.  Well I hope you get a chance to make this lovely ornament it really is very pretty!

Supplies Used
Border Punch
Pattern Paper


  1. Hi Brigit,
    It is gorgeous! Thanks for sharing.

  2. I checked out the collection you referenced and thought - how did she get this from that? Watched the video and now I see. AMAZING! You should do this as a DT project - I am sure everyone will want to make these for Christmas!

  3. I think I like your colors better -- this is so beautiful!
