Next, get the base of the ornament ready by cutting a triangle from cardboard. Thin cardboard (like from a cereal box) works well for this since it is easier to cut, yet sturdy enough for this purpose.

Start by drawing a triangle onto the cardboard. Cut the triangle out, and you will have the base to make the ornament.

Once the paper and cardboard is cut, it’s time to make the ornament!
