Get as creative as you want to be. Get a partially colored version of the symbol ornament for the shortest completion time or use the ornament to color for longer craft time.

Older children can completely design their own unique cube ornament.

Follow up with a Christmas symbol discussion.

Everyone can dazzle it up up by adding glitter or other decorations

Just cut and fold carefully.

See our Christmas symbols sheets for information.

1. GLITTER ABOVE

2. CUTTING:

7. First glue

1. GLITTER:
- If you start this project and plan to do it over 2 Sundays, you should apply glitter now to allow it to dry. Glitter could also be done if you start this craft at the beginning of the hour. Do something in-between, and then finish it at the end of the hour. It is not recommended to use any glitter or similar decorations and continue immediatly with the project - it will likely smear and get all over the place as the 6-sided object will be moving around on the table.

2. CUTTING:
- Cut on the solid outline. See our special cutting tips to cut the inside corners. CUT SLOWLY, CUT ON THE LINES.

3. FIRST FOLDING:
Fold before coloring because some children color heavily and obscure the dashed fold lines. It is important to slowly and carefully fold on ALL the dashed lines. You may need to refold after coloring, however, the paper should retain some memory of the fold to make it easier to fold it again in the same place. Teach the children to run two fingers (like pinching) along the fold after it has been press- folded along the dashed line to set the fold crisply.

4. COLORING:
- If you have chosen an uncolored version, color it now. If you are using a totally blank version, decorate it now.

5. RE-FOLDING INSERT PAPER CLIP AND YARN LOOP
Get a paper clip and 8 inches of yarn or string (Not thread), Tie the yarn or string to the paper clip to make a yarn loop.
Tape the paper clip inside the box where the star is on the outside. Glue the yarn inside the box at the corner so the loop comes out at a corner.

6. Re-press the folds.

7. FIRST GLUING
- Put glue on the spaces (flaps) that say GLUE1

8. The cube shape will just about form itself if the folds are crisp. The glue1 flaps go behind the panels. Press your fingers on the inside and outside to set the glue flaps to the cube.

9. It should now look like an open box. Put glue on the 3 remaining flaps that say glue2. Cover them thoroughly. Close the box to make a cube with the string loop coming out.
