Paper Bird Ornaments and Gift Topper

Need an easy, elegant gift topper that also doubles as a handmade Christmas ornament? I’m sharing this easy Paper Bird Ornaments and Gift Topper today! I originally shared it over at the Crafting Chicks fun holiday event. You can make a bunch or just one. These would make a great handmade Christmas ornament for kids too! Just make sure to use a low temperature hot glue gun with kids and always supervise them while crafting.

Simple Paper Bird Ornaments Tutorial

How to make paper Bird Ornaments


  • Christmas Scrapbook paper
  • Silhouette CAMEO
  • Hemp twine
  • Adhesive roller
  • Glue Gun {not pictured}
  1. Cut a bird silhouette shape out of the Christmas paper with a die cutter. {I used my Silhouette CAMEO} I used Silhouette Studio shape #15331. Then I cut a mirrored image to put on the back.
  2. Then cut about 8-10″ of twine, make a loop, and hot glue it to the back of one paper bird.
  3. Apply adhesive to the back of the mirrored bird and press to the wrong side of the first bird so that you sandwich the twine in the middle of the 2 paper birds.
  4. If your bird has a wing, glue on the wing with the adhesive runner.
