Faceted Ornament Tutorial

Today’s project is another faceted ornament! Thank you to fellow French demonstrator, Sonia Benedetti, for the inspiration! She also created a stunning wreath consisting of 8 of these faceted ornaments!

Here’s another angle:

I “pixie-fied” Sonia’s measurements – converted them from metric and then changed them to be able to use 8-1/2″ x 11″ cardstock!

I also tried to figure out an easy way to cut the triangle Designer Series Paper pieces. While not perfect, I did come up with an easy way to cut them while saving paper!

I’ve shared a similar tutorial before, but more of a round faceted ornament. These are so fun to make and WAY easier than they look! Without further ado, here’s my video tutorial:

And here’s the template for the ornament:

Here’s the template for the triangle pieces:

Thank you so much for stopping by today! We’re celebrating my hubby’s birthday this weekend – can’t wait! Have a wonderful & blessed weekend!

  1. Love how your tutorials are so visually detailed using your templates. Thank you so much for sharing your incredible talent.

  2. Oh Julie, Julie…I’m speechless!!! This ornament looks amazing, I love it so much that I went ahead and made one, it’s easier than it looks, when I saw the picture I immediately thought it looked so complicated but in reality, it’s easy and fun.
    Maybe the “hardest” part was to cut the little triangles, I messed up the piece of paper once, LOL!!
    But anyway my dear, thank you for working so hard to “Pixify” the measurements so we can create this gorgeous ornament/gift box for the Holidays.
    Have a beautiful day.
