Christmas Countdown – Day Three

It’s Day Three of the Christmas Countdown and I’ve got a spot of paper folding for you.  I loved Origami as a child and I think the one and only book on the subject in our local library spent more time at my house than on the library shelves!  I only found out about these simple little stars made from paper strips relatively recently, though, and these are the ones I made last year for the Advent Calendar.  (click the photo below to find the instructions)

Planet Penny Advent Calendar – Day Three

Brightly coloured folded paper balls are spectacular, and you have to be pretty neat fingered and accurate.  However, I think once you’ve made them you would want to have them on display all year round, not just Christmas time!

These snowflakes and Santas are very jolly and brightly coloured, aren’t they?  The website the picture is linked to has little videos to show you how to make them.  I haven’t had a chance to try them out yet, but if you do I love to know how you get on!

Origami Maniacs

I had a craze for making paper cranes a while back and filled the family Christmas tree!  I sourced some metallic and iridescent Origami sheets which looked really pretty.

These stars make a pretty garland…

…and going back to the simple little stars at the beginning, this would make a stunning centrepiece for the Christmas table wouldn’t it?

Enjoy the links and have fun with the paper folding, I’m itching to have a go myself now!

Until tomorrow…x
