Cute Christmas Ornaments

I love the holidays and creating fun projects to make and display throughout my home. No matter how old I am, I always enjoy decorating and beauty of the season.

Want to make a fun craft project with your kids or grandkids? The holidays are a special time for kids and what a fun project to create with them and have lasting memories that you’ll remember each year as you add these to your tree.

There are three designs for the Cute Christmas Ornaments: Santa, Reindeer and Snowman. They will make a fun project to create for the holidays using your Cricut and card stock.

I would suggest making these ornaments at least the size of 4 inches wide.

Now if everything looks correct on it, click on the continue button
The next screen will be where you will select the type of card stock you are using. If you do not see the material in your material favorites, click on "browse all materials" to find the weight of cardstock that you are using. For example the black Cardstock I used is medium weight, you will need to select "Medium Weight"..
Once you have Design Space set, you are now ready to prepare your mat. I used a brayer when placing the Cardstock on the mat, this helps in making sure that the paper is adhered to the mat and will help in keeping the paper from ripping or moving when it is being cut.
