Year of the Dragon 3D paper ornaments – set of 8



Celebrate the Year of the Dragon with your own DIY paper ornaments. Crafted with dragon motifs there are 8 templates  and each one has 6 elements. The numbers 6 and 8 are the lucky numbers of the Lunar New Year 2024.

This product is a digital DIY kit: templates + PDF instructions

Skills level: Beginner

Materials needed: White copy paper 200-300 g, colour printer, scissors, wire, glue, crepe paper.

The files are suitable for Cricut PrintThenCut option, but they are also very easy to cut by hand. Print them on A4 Portrait orientation (For better colours go to your printer’s settings and choose photo paper and then the type of the paper from the falling menu. Because you are not printing on photo paper, but on copy paper, I suggest to use “glossy” photo paper, it works the best for me).
The difference in sizes between Cricut PrintThenCut Auto resize size and the simple printing size you can see on the last photo above the text.

The kit contains:

– 4 ZIP files with 8 PNG files (transparent background) with ornaments

– 1 PDF file with assembly instructions

If you are making these ornaments as a home decoration project, consider giving some cutting or gluing  tasks to your child or grandchild. Activities like cutting, gluing (also button sewing, beading and colouring) are among the best for improving growing brains, developing great motor skills.
