Freebie! Layered Papercut Christmas Ornament

Layered paper ornament. Easy to make and so pretty!

If you follow me on Facebook, you know that I am kind of obsessed with these layered ornaments.
(If you’re not following me on Instagram… why not? It’s @RebeckaHathaway)

I challenged myself for the month of October to design a new ornament every day. That’s 31 ornaments! I was able to meet that challenge, and now I’m tasked with creating the files and getting them ready to list in my shop. That takes some time and I’m not caught up with that yet. Bear with.

This ornament is from Day 17.
It’s simple but looks intricate. If you haven’t tried making these, this is a perfect one to start with.

The download includes SVG, DXF and EPS files for machine cutting.
It also includes PDF and JPG files for hand cutting. (Thin black outlines on a white background)

I’ve added a new version of the PDF and JPG files that print at full color. So if you want to have the different colored layers without having colored papers, this one’s for you.

Full Color Print then Cut PDF file


A zipped file containing all of the file formats – PDF, SVG, EPS, JPG and DXF.
Download, unzip and extract the format that you need.

Kidnapped at a very early age and forced to live among humans, I’m on a continued quest to return to the magical world from whence I came.
Just kidding. (Maybe)
I’m sitting here in my little house drawing and doing geeky computer stuff to share with you so you can make pretty things too
Everybody’s an artist. Let’s be artists together.

    Oh my! What a beautiful surprise to find your October 17 freebee! Thank you for sharing. I think you are much more of an artist than I. I can draw a square, but probably not a round circle. I might win if we have a contest about who makes the bigger mess making October 17 though. I always have difficulty getting the settings right for the paper in my Cameo 3.
    Thank you for the templates, Rebecca!

    Got the freebie all cut out but I don’t know what to do with it. Are there directions anywhere
