Christmas paper decorations

Christmas paper decorations
Here are some Christmas decorations inspired by the good old British weather! We’re putting the tree up this weekend so more decorations to come over the next week. When do you normally put yours up? (When I was little it was usually a Christmas eve job but nowadays my neighbourhood seems to go for December 1st!). (BTW: Don’t forget to put your loop of thread in before sticking the models together – I’ve lost count of the number of times I’ve done that!) Templates – – – – – – – – Snowflake tetrahedronSimple snowflake icosahedronSnowflake icosahedronMountain tetrahedronRaindrop cubeGrey Gem (model 2) If you want plain templates without the designs on you can check out my platonic solids templates, my paper gems templates or my diamond template. Happy cutting/folding/sticking!

Paper Gems: New Templates Hello there! My book finally came out this week! As a little present I am giving you the templates for the paper gems that are shown in the book. Math Christmas Ornament It’s that time of the year again, and this Christmas season we have something special for you – Platonic Solid Christmas Ornaments! These Platonic Solid nets are ready for you to print out and fold into the coolest math Christmas ornaments on the planet! Simply cut out the pattern, and fold along the grey lines. Fold the tabs into the solids and adhere with double-stick tape or glue. Alternatively, you can simple tape the sides together with regular tape. After you get the solid constructed, attach some string and add it to your tree.

Stellated dodecahedrons! Hello there. I seem to be stuck in a geometric-paper-model rut at the moment! I promise this will be the last one for a while! (I have just white-washed a lot of the walls in our home so I have been looking to make some colourful objects to hang up…these are just the job). Paper gems (+ templates) This has got to be one of my favourite projects to date…which is a good job because I nearly broke my brain putting the templates together!! I’m not so good at maths and figuring out angles (my lovely Mum is a retired maths teacher so I should know better!). By the way this project is quite fiddly so more aimed at grown-ups or older kids. My paper gems were very influenced by these wonderful crayons (via Deborah’s Pinterest board). You can use these paper gems as hanging decorations (for your Christmas tree) or you can incorporate them into a mobile or garland. I would love to make about a hundred and string them up in front of my window…however there is a limit to my patience!!

I hope you’ve all had a lovely Christmas and New Year. We took our decorations down a few days ago which is always a bit sad :-/ so I made a few new decorations to hang up in their place. Paper medallions have been around for aeons. I remember making them when I was a kid. I’ve seen a few pinned on Pinterest lately so I think they are making a bit of a comeback.

DIY Angled Starburst Ornament Guest post by Denise Sharp of Studio d.Sharp This is a simple, modern paper ornament that is easy to make and looks great on the tree. Being lightweight, it twirls when hung, reflecting light from its many angles. Woven paper gift topper I‘m pretty chuffed with these woven paper gift toppers. They are a sinch to make and look really great with recycled newspaper wrap. The idea originated from this woven yarn gift topper which you can see at giverslog.com and from this image which comes from the book More Last Minute Knitted Gifts.

3D paper diamonds Hello there. Hope you all had a great Easter! We had a lovely relaxing holiday (….well as relaxing as it gets with kids).

How to Weave a Paper Ball Ornament When I was in Thailand, I would see the local people weave palm leaves into beautiful bowls, fans, balls and other amazing things. I asked my aunt if she knew how to make these things and she gave me a book that was all in Thai. I don't know how to read Thai, I can barely speak it. Somehow after a week of fumbling around with strips of paper, I managed to decode the pictures and figure it out. HUNTING. GATHERING. MAKING. THE GOOD STUFF.

Crepe Paper Petals Wall Hanging I love looking at images of flower torans, which are festive garlands hung in Indian households as celebratory decorations, and decided to figure out a crepe paper version. Torans are so fun – the patterns and colors are super cheerful. There are a million ways to use this technique – you can make a wall hanging, garlands, bunting, leis, etc., and you can scale them to suit whatever space you’re decorating. They would look great as a backdrop at a party or wedding!
