[Video]Make a 3-d Christmas Ornament with CTMH Artiste Cricut Cartridge

I was looking at the Close to My Heart catalog and they have some pretty ornaments in it. I wondered if I could make them into a 3-D ornament and here's the result!

All of this was cut using the Close to My Heart Artiste Cricut cartridge.  See the sizing below:


Now, this project only requires two sheets of green, two sheets of cream and one sheet of red cardstock.

I will tell you this takes a little bit of time to make.  But much of that time is just letting the machine cut out the ornament pieces.
Here's another view of it hanging on a metal decorative ornament tree I have.
Check out the video below on how to make this 3-D Ornament (click HERE if you can't see the video):

  1. Joy, that is a beautiful ornament! Loved your video! I have only made glass ornaments and cut out vinyl guests' names with the Cricut, and adhered them to the glass. After adorning them with satin ribbon and little snowflake embellishments on wire, I used them for place cards at the Christmas table. Your ornaments are so pretty and festive. they would be lovely on a tree, at a place setting, or on a gift. TFS!

  2. Congrats to the winner of the Baby Steps cartridge...love that she is sooo excited about her grandbaby! I have used my Cricut to make ornaments. I did the glitter ornaments with vinyl names one year and also did the clear acetate sheets with snowmen that I put inside clear ornaments.

    Your ornament is so gorgeous!! I love the tulle and the delicate look of it!

  21. I have never made an ornament with my cricut. I just loved this idea! Every year I say I am going to make my own Christmas cards and this is just the idea for this year. I love that the recipient can use the ornament on their tree or maybe even as a gift decoration. Thanks so much for the awesome idea/demonstration!!

  24. If you get hot glue strings on a project use a hair dryer or heat gun to melt them away. They magically disappear.

  25. Love the ornament and cannot wait to make one. Thank you for the great video tutorials.

  26. I have made many ornaments for the tree over the years but have never used the Cricut to make them. I am going to make these this year. Actually it is a tradition in our family to see what I am going to make each year. By the time my kids got married they had enough ornaments to decorate their own trees. Have a fun day!

  27. I have never made an ornament with my cricut, although I have made ornaments and usually make one for my sisters, but I'm making something different this year. This is a beautiful ornament and I will have to keep this in mind for next year.

  28. I've never made any ornaments with the Cricut, but I may have to after seeing some of these fabulous ones!

  29. Before I got the Artiste cartridge I only made snowflakes with the other CTMH cartridges. Don't know how you could be apologetic for your video being too long! I thought it was amazing how you quickly and informatively you put it together. It is beautiful and I will be making many soon. There's another similar design on the CTMH Art Philosophy cartridge I'm going to try also. Thanks Joy. rosebud114

  32. I have made many ornaments similar to this one with my Cricut. They are great and can be a fun group project as I have done. I like the tulle addition you added and rosette. Very pretty. TFS. Shelly

  33. Simple beautiful. I have never made an 'ornament' with my cricut but I think this are great for anything not just a tree. Can hang it on a gift bag for sure. I have been out of the loop for many months and happy to be back during this favorite time - Fall/Winter Holidays. I need ideas so loving it all.

  37. I absolutely love the ornament!! I cannot wait to make one of these. My friends and I have an ornament exchange every year at christmas and I may get energetic and make one for each! WOW
    We also do scrapbooking at retreats and share our Cricut cartridges. Such fun and we think our pages turn out better when we are all together.
    I would love to win the Snowfolks Cricut cartridge to share with my best friends. This cartridge is so unique and is winter rather than Christmas. Because my children are teens now, so much of the Christmas isn't, well, at their age level any more. They aren't up for the cutesy holiday decorations but still enjoy the winter. Thanks for a great blog!!

  38. I didn't think your vids could get any better. WOW. I love the ornament! Your directions are clear. I had to play it over to get the sizes.

  41. Hi Joy! Yes, I have made ornaments with my Cricut. Mostly make them for church during the holidays...so fun! I like to glitter them up! It's also fun to make them and add them to packages or add them to the inside of a greeting card as a little surprise ( of course those in the cards are to be flat...LOL!).

    Nope, I've never made ornaments w my cricut, but sooooo want to!!! I'm new to cricut and I'm still learning the 'how to do' of it! I dooo soooo love it and really want to make my Christmas over with it this year! Sooo excited!
    I need to win some cartridges tho, so I have more projects to be able to do!!!!! Good luck to everybody!
    Thank you for giving us all a chance at your wonderful giveaways!
    You're The Best!!!

  49. I love that ornament! Stampin Up did something similar last year but you had to cut each one with a die. That would be tedious. So much easier and faster to let the Cricut do all the cutting. I will have to say CTMH cricut cartdridges have a lot of content on them. Put the price stops me. I wouldn't turn one down it I won one though. :) Put I never see any on a drawing. ;(

  53. Great video, Joy. I cannot tell you how much I appreciate seeing a step by step on how you made this. There are so many 3D items I would like to make, but just can't quite figure out how they were made. You made this simple and I applaud you....Thank you!

  54. Loved your video! Beautiful ornament! I used those same ornaments last year for To and From labels. I will try the ornament this year! Thanks for the beautiful idea!!

  58. The ornament is gorgeous. I have made several ornaments with my Cricut but they were not as detailed or as beautiful as yours.

    My favorite family tradition was the reading of the second chapter of Luke at midnight on Christmas eve. Each year one our sons, my husband or I would read the entire chapter as a reminder of what Christmas is truly about.

  67. Oh Joy - how beautiful! I almost forgot about the 3D ornaments on the cart - and that's why I bought it several years ago! There are so many images on the Artiste and Art Philosophy carts that I've used time and again for all sorts of cards. Thanks so much for sharing. As I'm looking at this I'm wondering...hmmm. I'm in fb group where I've started at "Christmas gift tag" share - where several of us are making gift tags to send each other and all my extras will go on gifts for residents at a geriatric center. I'd love to make some of these as an extra gift for my group members - just wonder how many boxes I'd have to have to ship them so they'd arrive safely since the tags could go in envelopes with no problem. Maybe I'll go box hunting - ha!
