How to Make It

1. Download the free patterns; print and cut them out. Cut a front and back shape for each ornament from patterned paper. Cut the corresponding pattern shapes from coordinating patterned papers.

2. For the rose-and-pink ornament: Adhere the top and bottom decorative shapes to the front using crafts glue. Use a white gel pen to outline the swirls; let dry. Embellish the design with flower shapes punched from patterned papers or use flower stickers. Glue snowflakes, rhinestones, and a tiny pom-pom in place.

3. For the cream ornament: Adhere the diamond and circles to the front. Trim the excess paper from the circles. Use a gold gel pen to outline the diamond and circles.

4. For the green ornament: Use a white gel pen to make dots on the front. Glue rickrack around the center circle; adhere the trimmed circle to the scalloped circle. Glue the assembled circles to the front.

5. To finish the ornaments: Adhere a ribbon hanging loop at the top and cover with the topper shape. Glue the front of the ornament to the back and trim the edges.
