Creating ornaments from paper is a fairly new hobby that has recently been taking up by me. After looking at countless of tutorials on the Internet & on YouTube on creating paper based ornaments--I decided to try my very first oragami based Christmas tree.
I've used papers from the lovely monochromatic 'Faith' collection for these two Christmas themed ornaments.
My first project is one that I learned how to do back in grammar school. I created many of these mini wreaths out of old Christmas cards at school & I just never forgot how to make them. Today, instead of using old recycled Christmas cards--I use scrapbook paper to give these wreaths a bit more pizzazz.
The best part about these ornaments is that they can be any size you wish. They can be made small such as this one that measures 3" inches in diameter or they can be as large as 6" inches in diameter.
Here's my attempt at origami folding. The folds are no where near being perfect & I struggled on several of the folds & had to open & refold a couple of times in order to get the tree to at least stand up straight! :-) But for a first attempt--I'm pretty happy with it.
The 'Faith' papers allow for any other color to be added to it which makes it for a very versatile collection.
