Christmas Ornaments: Cool Cube Card Ornament

Cool Cube Card Ornament

Total Time Needed: Afternoon Or Evening

It arrives folded like a traditional holiday greeting, but when you follow the easy instructions for assembling it, it transforms into a photo-cube ornament to hang on the tree.


  • Template
  • Photograph
  • Glue
  • Card stock
  • Ribbon


1. Download and print the template. Select 6 pictures of your family and trim each to a 2- by 2-inch square. With a glue stick, affix the pictures to the template where indicated. (When the card is folded, you'll have 4 photos on the front and 2 on the back.)

2. Once it's dry, take the template to a copy shop and have them print copies on 8 1/2- by 11-inch sheets of heavy card stock. The cards will print out with a white border, which the copy shop can trim for you. Have them also fold the cards in half.

3. At home, tie a 22-inch piece of colorful ribbon around the fold of each card, as shown (it doubles as a hanger), before slipping them into 6- by 9-inch envelopes.
