Use your exacto knife to cut out the shapes. Be sure to hold your knife down firmly while cutting so you get through all four layers. BE CAREFUL!

Step 3: Step 3

Put one whole cut out piece aside and stack the other three of that same piece on top of each other. Cut these three pieces in half. Do the same for any other ornaments you added to your page. Fold up 1/4" of the half pieces.

Step 4: Step 4

Use the double sided tape to attach three half pieces to each side of the one solid piece. Hang on your tree, or anywhere you need a cool decoration! And guess what?? you even made yourself a cool stencil out of the left over papers that you cut out of.

Nice! You should glitter the edges - colored for the balls, clear for the snowflake.
