Here is an inexpensive way to enliven a mantel, table runner or holiday tree. At a dinner party they can be both place cards and party favor. These 3-D paper ornaments can be made with your choice of background paper to go with this year's decor. Your pdf download includes a detailed instruction sheet along with four silhouetted holiday designs with holiday wishes: Reindeer/Magic, Bell/Joy, Snowflake/Peace, and Star/Hope. You can choose paper that harmonizes with your personal style. Scrapbook paper or something of similar weight and toughness is recommended.
Bookmarks take up the paper that you cut off to make the paper square. Use them yourself or tuck them in books you give for the holidays.
Since the design is meant for 8.5 by 11 sheets the final ornament will be 4.25 inches per side or 5.78 inches tall.
