Free Printable Christmas Star Ornaments with Templates is a paid collaborative post with Epson as I am #EpsonAbassador. I wanted to really put the EcoTank ET-7700 through its paces this month, so I designed a free star decoration inspired by the ones I used to make as a child from the previous years Christmas cards.
These really are easy to make, but look so effective. I went for a green and gold colour scheme with a watercolour feel to it. I was really impressed with the printed colours. The gold colour really shines.
I love that I can see straight away how much ink I have left in the tanks using the windows in front of them and also not having to worry about the ink running out as I am still on the first fill up and I have a full bottle of ink of each colour left and I have printed a lot this month.

How to make Christmas Star Ornaments
Print out and cut out the stars. We used five stars per decoration.
Fold the stars in half – if you look carefully at the printable you will see there is a guideline there. We use an old paper crafting tool to rub over the crease and make it sharp. A rule will work as well.
Now you need to glue the stars together. I prefer a fast grab tacky glue for this as it sticks on contact.
Before you glue the last star together, you need to add your twine. Cut to length, knot it and glue to the spine before opening out your star and glueing the first to the last.
Using your Cricut to cut our Christmas Star Ornaments with Templates
One of the questions I was asked on my Instagram post when I introduced the #EpsonAmbassador post did the Epson EcoTank ET-7700 work with the print and cut facility on the Cricut.
So I put it to the test with this craft and yes it does. It read the print lines perfectly.
If you fancy giving it a go – we have already uploaded the design with the score lines to our Cricut Design Space. I have been delighted with the Epson EcoTank RT-7700 using it for the print and cut facility.
