Start by downloading the SVG file below and uploading it to your cutting machine. We cut our papercut Christmas art onto text weight metallic paper in Ice Silver, but you can easily customize your color palette. Our favorite resource for metallic paper is Paper-Papers.com. After cutting the design, you can cut out the little holly accents to attach around the print like a wreath. For this part we used metallic paper in Sand. Find links for our papers in Shop this Project! Next, add the pieces using a glue stick or hot glue gun in any arrangement you’d like.
All you have to do is stick your papercut Christmas art into a nice frame and it’s ready to show off! We found our simple silver frame from IKEA. You can use an 8.5 x 11 frame, or you can cut it down to smaller sizes like 8 x 10 if you prefer. When we added the papercut design into the frame, we stuck a sheet of the Sand colored paper behind the papercut part. This is a great way to create some cohesion in the print, or you can go with a coordinating metallic shade for extra interest.
This papercut Christmas art is beautiful on its own, but we also love the idea of putting together a cute garland of Christmas prints. Use some festive red baker’s twine and mini clothespins to craft your own garland. If you want to create a little display on your mantel like we have, you can craft up some paper holly leaves. Use our template and floristic crepe, then set out some nice white candles. It’s all up to you how you want to style this easy DIY Christmas project!
