What with all the rush to buy gifts for him and her and the seemingly endless slew of Christmas parties at the start of December, I needed something to distress me from it all. So, in between the busyness, I managed to do some crafts. Using the Origami pack I got from the PBBY Christmas party, I whipped up a star wreath for Christmas. The pattern for the star was taken from Zoe's old origami book. Bibliography to follow as I'm blogging off site at the moment.
Now here's a step by step how-to for the origami star.
|Step 1- Origami paper: make a triangular crease.|
|Step 2 - Using the crease as guide, fold the left and right side to the center. Paper looks like a cone.|
|Step 3 - Fold the top left and right sides to the center . Again, using the crease made in step 1 as guide. It looks like a kite now.|
|Step 4 - Fold the kite in its center. Now it's a triangle. Make three of these.|
|Step 5 - Glue the two triangles together.|
|Step 6 - Glue the third triangle on top of the two triangles to form a star.|
