Step by step instruction to make paper gems:

  1. Download and print out my free gemstone templates on cardstock, 180gsm to 220gsm. If you want to make giant gems, consider using cardboard.
  2. Cut the template with scissors or x-actor knife
  3. Score and fold the dotted line with the help of a ruler and an out-of-ink ball pen or the dull edge of the scissors.
  4. Glue the tabs with same number ID together. I use gluestick on thin paper like copier paper (small size gems), white on cardstock, UHU glue on glitter cardstock and a glue gun for cardboard (giant size gems).
  5. Just try to be careful with your cut, score, and fold, your final works will be perfect.
  6. All of these printable gems are originally designed for A4 size paper. But you could change the size of paper A3, A4, A5, A6….in the printer setting. I made these gems from A5 size paper, except the orange one from A4 size. It could be a giant gems collection for your windows display or a tiny and colorful hanging on your empty wall.

Here are some ideas for your decoration purposes:

♥ Hanging these on your wall or windows.

♥ Glue it with some sticks for your desk decor

♥ Put it on a trunk with gold chains, pearl chains to have a giant treasure

♥ You can change the color to have your own style

♥… and I would love to hear from you any other suggestion.
