Faceted Christmas Ornament with Video Tutorial

Today’s project is a faceted Christmas ornament that I demonstrated during last night’s Weekly Wednesday Facebook Live!

Here’s a closer look:

This features the Be Merry Designer Series Paper and looks much harder than it is to make! I followed Samantha Clayton’s tutorial (Mixed Up Craft) – love her projects!

Here’s my shorted Facebook Live video:

Here’s a template for you:

The asterisks represent where to adhere the 17 – 1″ squares of Designer Series Paper. The dots along the top squares are where the 1/8″ holes need to be punched.

Thank you so much for stopping by today and to those of you who joined me for my Facebook Live last night! I hope you have a wonderful and blessed day!

  1. i really like how you draw out on a dif pc of paper what pieces will be cut out or folded or scored etc. it really helps when it comes to making the ornament! i know you have done other patterns this way as well. it is soooo helpful! thank you for the work you do to present these things to us.

    really cute ornament!

  2. That is so cool; a great project and wonderfully roomy for treats! I love it, Julie; thanks for the great inspiration and tutorial! Blessings! 🙂

  3. Love these, they are all over I made the mini version using smaller size, they are so cute also. Thanks for your template though, it’s easier to view this way when cutting..

  4. Awe! Every year I make ornaments for my student’s parents. This might be my project. I care for 10 almost 2year olds. I’m hoping to add 17 photos of each child vs scrapbook paper. This may take awhile but I LOVE the looks of this ornament.

  5. Love this craft…could use as an apple with the green ribbon on top/or brown for a teacher? Or pumpkin maybe? Thank you for the inspiration Julie ! Your instructions are always so clear, and love what you share.

  6. Julie,
    I LOVE THIS SO MUCH! My team is having a holiday dinner this week and we are each making an ornament for a tree to be given away in a drawing. I have made two of them. I’ll send you a picture as soon as I can. I LOVE IT. The drawings and detailed directions are MUCH appreciated.
    As always, thank you for inspiring me. I loved getting to meet you at Onstage and chit chat..it was so much fun.
