Tinkercad let’s you make 3D models by adding and subtracting basic shapes like cubes and spheres.  It also allows you to make custom shapes by extruding 2D shapes.  Try importing this one and extruding it to make it 3D.  It’s a template for an ornament!

The 2D shape is a text file that describes curves and points.  Copy and paste it into ‘Notepad’ or any other text editor.  Then save it with the extension ‘SVG’.  For example, my file is called ‘ornament.svg’.

*** Actually, that didn’t work for me…so I uploaded the SVG file to Google Drive here:
