fun with folded paper
After having fun making pretty designs with my impromptu wine cork stamps the other night, I straightaway started making little folded paper Christmas tree ornaments.
Besides being easy and pretty, they’re a great way to make something wonderful out of leftover pieces of nice paper.
I used a standard water glass to form the basis of my circle template, then just cut two notches in the outer edge for a bit of shape variation.
Select eight pieces with a variety of colors. Fold all the circles in half with the notches pointed away from the fold, and glue the flat sides together with the folds meeting in the middle. Add a beaded embellishment at the bottom and a ribbon at the top to finish.
While circles are probably the easiest shape to work with, any symmetrical shape will work.
The Christmas decorating countdown is about to begin. (yay!)
