DIY Winter Scenic Ornament [w/ Template] | DIY Gifts | Christmas Countdown

Isnt this cute? All inspired by a youtube channel named PapertreyInk.

They used a set of die-cuts with a big shot machine to achieve those cute little ornaments, great as gifts.

We made a template for 2 different designs and you can totally add your personal touch to it.
Writing a private message, colouring on custom colour designs etc...

Not everyone has a die-cut machine but these ornaments can be hanged anywhere... Literally anywhere... From book bags, as a key chain, to curtains , as a holdback... and of course the most obvious one is on a Tree.

These are cute tiny scenes trapped in a snowglobe like ornament. Go wild and add some glitter or confetti to "make it snow".

Scroll down to get template :)

Infographic will be updated soon~

I. You can definitely use a silhouette die cut machine if you have one :)
