I am a design team member for ScraPerfect. Each month I post two tutorials on their blog. Today I have a tutorial for making a 3D Party Decoration. They are really versatile and can be made in a variety of different sizes as well as used for a variety of different applications. [party decoration]

Learn how to turn a mirrored image into a 3D ornament just like this snowflake with Cricut.
The thing I like most about snowflakes besides no two being alike is that they are great for winter decor. They work for Christmas, Hanukkah, New Years, or a general winter theme.
Using any mirrored image, you can turn it into a 3D shape. Snowflakes work for this idea. In this post I will show how I took a simple snowflake cut in Design Space and by adding a score line then making multiple cuts, it can be turned into a 3D hanging decor.
Make one large snowflake to hang in a doorway or from a light fixture, or you can make multiples to hang all together to cover a larger area or make smaller versions for Christmas tree ornaments.

I wanted to thank Cricut for providing my cutting machine in order to create posts using their products.
This is an Explore Air 2 – Easy one-Cut Holiday project. One shape that is cut multiple times to make the ornament. In the video below you will see how you set up one snowflake to cut and then you can tell your machine to cut multiples of that one image. The software knows where to place it on the mat to use the optimal amount of surface space without wasting any materials.
The following video will show you how I set up the snowflake file in Design Space.
