Folding 5 Pointed Origami Star Christmas Ornaments

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. We don’t have our tree up just yet so for now I’ve put these Christmas star decorations on our mantelpiece. One of the 5 pointed origami stars is folded from a dictionary scan that I printed from the Graphics Fairy , while the other stars are made from scrapbook papers. I went for vintage patterns but you could equally well use bright Christmas colors. I also tried hanging them on the mirror in our living room and I think they look quite nice there: Perhaps we’ll move them to our Christmas tree once it’s up :-) Credit for this design belongs to Shuzo Fujimoto, who created the design in the 70s. Materials for 5 Pointed Origami Star All you need is: a square sheet of paper some scissors Origami purists will frown upon me using scissors but hey, this is the 21st century not feudal Japan ;-) Step 1

So start saving those plastic bags, and put them to great use the next time you need an artistic gift wrapping solution, or some great party decorations. And as for the size of your pom poms, well you decide, since plastic bags work well for large pom poms as well as fairly small ones. page corner bookmarks This project comes to you at the request of Twitterer @GCcapitalM. I used to believe that a person could never have too many books, or too many bookmarks. Then I moved into an apartment slightly larger than some people’s closets (and much smaller than many people’s garages) and all these beliefs got turned on their naïeve little heads.
