Have you noticed how trendy ornaments and ornament shapes are for this holiday season?  They are everywhere!  From the Ornament Keepsakes Bundle of stamps and Framelits, to the lovely paper ornament  we created out of that bundle—the Ornament Keepsakes Holiday Ornament project!  (yes, I used the word "ornament" four times in one sentence!)

Today, I have another ornament project that doesn't take many supplies and is fun and easy to make! 

Candlelight snowflake ornament

CASEd from a project I saw at Ronda's Creative Convention – please contact me if it was you!

Isn't it pretty?!  It's made with woven strips of Candlelight Christmas Designer Series Paper and topped with Whisper White and Silver Glimmer Paper die-cuts from the Snow Flurry Die, and a Large Pearl Jewel.  Let's learn how to make it…it's so easy!

Make Your Own Woven Paper Ornament

Candlelight ornament - 1 strips

  • Start with 12 strips of Designer Series Paper: 6 each of two coordinating styles, each cut at 1/2" x 6".

Candlelight ornament - 2 cross

  • Adhere two of the different strips together in a "plus" shape.   

Adhesive TIP: I have tried many different adhesives with this project and I highly recommend the Tombow Multipurpose Adhesive for the best results.

Candlelight ornament - 4 corner 
Candlelight ornament - 9 glue corners

  • Adhere the corner strips together.  You'll actually fold the strips under until the opposite side is showing, then adhere those ends together with the Tombow Adhesive so they are flush.  If you are not seeing a "v" of the opposite side paper on the tips, then your ends are not being glued in the correct direction.  

Candlelight ornament - 6 all corners

  • Continue until all corners are adhered.

Candlelight ornament - 7 glue down

  • TIP: This is a good time to check to make sure the woven panels are all adhered.  If not, add some adhesive…it will add to the stability of your ornament and make it lay straighter and more symmetrical when you're finished.

Candlelight ornament - 10 two sides

  • Using the remaining six strips, repeat the preceding steps to create another side the ornament.

Candlelight ornament - 12 put them together

  • Now you'll say one side on top of the other so the flat sides of the the ornament will be to the outside and the curved corners will point toward the center.

Candlelight ornament - 13 together

  • The corner points will be alternating and the loose strips will each match up to an opposing point.

Candlelight ornament - 16 all threaded

  • Thread each of the loose strips through the back of the points, so the whole ornament is loosely interlocking.

Candlelight ornament - 17 glue it

  • Adhere the loose ends to the top of the underside of each point.  That loose strip will make a small "s" shape to accommodate the connection when it's adhered.

Candlelight ornament - 18 all glued

  • Here is what it should look like once it's all adhered.  You may have to shape it a bit to make it lay flat and straight.

I hope you have fun creating your own Woven Paper Ornament—It's Too Cool!  

Options: Hang the woven ornament on your tree, give it as a gift, even use it as a bow on the top of a present or hanging from a gift bag!  You could even use strips of fabric adhered to chipboard for more durable holiday keepsake.
