The holiday season is coming up, and nothing is more delightful than to put up a Christmas tree and make handmade Christmas decorations. Our polygonal paper balls can be made in any color, so you can make them suit your Holiday tree theme.
With our template download and step-by-step video tutorial, you can make these balls easily. If you have a cutting machine, click on the SVG file below and cut straight onto your chosen cardboard. If you will be cutting by hand, download the PDF below, print it, and use a craft knife or scissors to cut out each piece of the ball.
