12 Days of Christmas Ornaments Day #2!

Welcome to Day #2 of my 12 Days of Christmas Ornaments! If you missed the first ornament, scroll down to see it! I also wanted to mention today that last year I showcased a 12 Days of Christmas which included a card with matching goodie holder. If you would like to view those posts, click HERE.

For today, I have a 4-sided ornament that was created using the "Lattice Die":

This one is pretty simple. You cut (4) lattices from Whisper White Cardstock and (4) more using Raspberry Ripple Cardstock. Once you have them all cut, score & fold the Whisper White ones diagonally from tip to tip and score and fold the Raspberry Ripple ones in the center sitting as a square.

Using the Whisper White ones first, glue half to half until you have the first 3 glued together, add a string running through the center and glue in place, then add the 4th lattice by gluing the remaining sides together. This is what your ornament should look like at this point:

Now, using the Raspberry Ripple lattices, glue them to each side of your ornament by adding glue and pushing the center fold line into each center fold quadrant of your ornament:

Once you have all the lattice's cut out, these ornaments are quite easy to mass produce. You could even decorate them with Pearl Jewels or Rhinestone Jewels! I hope you have enjoyed Day #2 and that you will return tomorrow for Day #3!
