cricut® dimensional star christmas ornament

Mix paper crafting with jewelry making to make this Cricut® Christmas Star Ornament this year. This handmade beauty is sure to wow your friends and family!
Step 1

First, click here for the design in Cricut® Design Space™.

Step 2

Cut out the star shapes from kraft cardstock and the triangular shapes from glitter cardstock.

Step 3

Fold along all of the score lines on each star piece. Use hot glue to adhere the sides together on each point of the star.

Step 4

Now, glue the bottoms together to assemble the star.

Step 5
Glue the glitter triangular shapes to the front surfaces of the star.
Step 6

Accordion fold the kraft strips along the score line. Glue the ends together to form a circle. Now, push the top down so it lays flat onto your working surface and glue the glitter scalloped circles in the center of each side.

Step 7

Glue the scalloped circle book print paper on top of one glittered scalloped circle to make the front; then glue the back to the center of your star.

Step 8

Pinch the tip point so it flats and punch a hole with the smaller hole punch on your Crop-a-dile®. Use your fingers to re-shape. Open a larger jump ring in the assortment, run it through the hole and close the jump ring.
TIP: To open and close a jump ring, simply grasp the jump ring on both sides with chain nose pliers and twist the ring open, from side-to-side. Never pull the jump ring which can cause distortion.


Step 9

To make the bead links, add a bead to an eye pin and bend the wire to a 90° angle just above the bead. Trim the wire to 3/8"-½" from the bend. Grasp the end of the eye pin wire between the jaws of a pair of round nose pliers. Rotate the pliers toward you, keeping a firm grip on the wire until a small loop is formed. Make three then link them together.
TIP: To link them, open on loop on one bead link just enough to slide in the loop of a second bead link inside and close the link.

Step 10

Open the jump ring at the top of your star, slide the loop at one end of your bead link onto the jump ring and close the jump ring.

Step 11

Finally, cut about 10" if metallic thread, thread through the top loop of your bead link and tie an overhand knot to form a hanger. Trim end of needed.
