Starstruck at Christmas « Kate's Creative Space Regular followers will know of my obsession with all things paper, and with projects which take very little time or specialist skill. As Christmas draws ever closer, I’ve been experimenting with different types of festive stars and bring you some simple projects to try today. My usual reassuring criteria apply; these had to be things I could a) get right the first time – or very occasionally the second; b) could do in front of the TV, merlot in hand, and c) look far more elegant and skilled than the actual labour would suggest.

Folding 5 Pointed Origami Star Christmas Ornaments These 5 pointed origami stars are easy to fold and make beautiful Christmas decorations. You can make them from magazines, scrapbook papers or sheet music, whatever you happen to have lying around.

The post is here. The tree is made from regular poster board that you can find at just about any store that sells any kind of office supplies (I’ve found it in grocery stores and pharmacies as well as the more conventional stores like Walmart). It had its own challenge in folding due to the fact that poster board does not fold nice and neat.
Gift bags made from envelopes The event for which I needed that non-Satanic craft was this past weekend. In addition to little demon-free booklets, we also made these mini gift bags. "Baglets," as one participant christened them. (Or maybe you'd spell it "Baglette"? Looks more elegant than spelling it like "piglet." Beats me.)
