This Snowflake Christmas Ornament is a fun way to use Cricut Washi Sheets! Cricut provided a Cricut Explore Air 2 machine for me to use for projects on this website.

Washi sheets are one of my favorite Cricut crafting materials. I like the translucent feel of the paper. It makes a great crafting medium for clay ornaments or anything else that needs a little pizzazz! Today, I’m using washi sheets and Cricut Shimmer Paper to make this Snowflake Christmas Ornament with a 3D element.
- Clay ornament- I have found these at any craft store
- Cricut Explore Air 2
- Cricut Standard Grip Cutting Mat
- Cricut Shimmer Paper
- Cricut Washi Sheet
- Mod Podge
- Hot glue gun and hot glue stick
- Measuring tape
Open up Cricut Design Space.
Measure the clay ornament. Jot down the largest middle portion measurement and the smallest portion (from the top or bottom of the ornament) measurement.
In Cricut Design Space, make a circle or use a ball ornament shape to cut out a washi tape circle/ball shape using the measurements from above. I made mine a bit smaller than the clay ornament because I wanted a border.
Cut the washi sheet with the Cricut machine and a Standard Grip Cutting mat.
Apply the washi circle to the clay ornament.
Optional: Secure the washi circle with Mod Podge. I did not do this with mine, and it has been holding up well so far.
Head back to Cricut Design Space and cut a 3D snowflake from the Shimmer Paper.
Hot glue the snowflake to the center of the ornament.
The Shimmer Paper adds a glittery element to the tree. My kids like the 3D part!
