Use the ornament template to quickly cut out as many shapes as you need.

Step 2: Staple and Cut Out the Ornament Shapes

print Christmas ornament PDF and staple to multiple sheets of paper before cutting

Once you have the easy paper ornament print outs, staple them to construction paper and cut out multiple shapes at a time.

Note: If you want to make this craft with a group of kids, you can staple the template to up to 10 sheets of copy paper, 5 sheets of cardstock or 5-8 sheets of construction paper.

So, did you know, you can staple together 10 pieces of copy paper and cut out 10 shapes at a time?! That’s my SECRET to fast & easy crafting.

Stapling the paper is very important because it makes sure it doesn’t move as you cut. The more staples the better. Cardstock is the thickest so you may only be able to cut 5 sheets at a time.

Extra Tip For Cutting Circles:

You can also use craft hole punchers to make your circles and I HIGHLY recommend them. You will need a large circle and a smaller one.

They’re available at any craft store or possibly big name stores that sell craft items. Again, make sure you’re punching holes in more than one sheet at a time!
