How to make paper gems
Download your watercolour paper gems free printables – there are three different watercolour designs.
Print out the gems onto heavy weight paper and cut them out. Then just fold along the lines indicated and stick the tabs down. It’s easy and the instructions are on the printables too. If you’re making hanging decorations or a garland create a loop with thread and secure one end to the inside of the geometic shape before you stick the final tab in place.
If you’d like to make plain coloured paper gems download my free printable paper gem template here. Just choose your paper colour and print out the template.
