Cricut Christmas decoration ideas for you to make with your cutting machine and home printer...
Make these pretty papercraft Christmas ornaments with your Cricut and home printer
You can make these Cricut Christmas ornaments from paper and card like I have, or you can use other materials suitable for your particular cutting machine such as light woods or felt.
The central design is created using the 'print then cut' feature on your cutting machine, which uses your home printer to print the design and your cutting machine to cut it out - you can also just print the design as normal using your home printer and trim it by hand, which allows you to use other application methods such as waterslide decal transfer paper or similar to apply the design - whatever is suitable for your own creative project.
If you haven't used print and cut before, don't worry, it's easy, but it's best to follow instructions to get it right. If you want to know how to create the Christmas decorations with your Cricut in paper and card (using the print then cut feature) I have all the instructions right here...

Cricut Christmas Decoration Ideas
There are six different designs for this particular Christmas decoration template - you can buy each individually or save money with a set of all six designs.
The designs are easy to make (full instructions here) - and look pretty on your Christmas tree or as cute Cricut Christmas decoration ideas for around the home.
The Christmas decoration is double-sided so that it can hang freely and you can see both sides - click play on the video below to see!
You will need a way to cut the ornament template - a cutting machine or craft knife - and a way to print the design - a home printer used on its own or in combination with the print and cut feature on Cricut and some other cutting machines. I have full instructions for making the Christmas decoration (from paper and card) using the Cricut 'print then cut' feature on my page here - it may also be helpful if you want to use another cutting machine, or also cut by hand and/or print on your home printer, as it also includes assembling the ornament.
I hope you like my Cricut Christmas decoration ideas that I created for you to make - there are six designs (available individually or as a set of all six designs) - and I take a closer look at each of these in turn, with lots of photos for you to get a better idea of how they look - all below...
I've made each decoration in the template colours (dark pink and green) and also an alternative idea in green and teal to give you some more Cricut Christmas decoration ideas for colours you could use to change up the look a bit - you can get as creative as you like with the colours to suit your own Christmas decor...
If you're not sure where to start, choose one of the colours out of the artwork to start with and then either pick a second artwork colour, or pick a second colour to go with the first (it doesn't necessarily have to be in the artwork).
I've used Sizzix 'Surfacez' textured cardstock for the ornaments (mostly from the festive colours pack) - and glossy photo paper for the artwork - there's some more ideas of other cardstock and paper types you might like to use for printing the artwork on the main instruction page here...
The ribbon (not provided) gives you a chance to add a third colour if you like - I've kept to traditional Christmas red and green for my ribbons, but hey, it's your Christmas so you should go with something that suits your own Christmas decoration ideas. I've used a 3mm fabric ribbon to fit the ornament.
