It has been a tradition of mine to make ornaments to give as gifts. This Christmas, the star of my projects are... yes. Stars.
Back in Japan, my sister and I went to a big craft show in Tokyo, and we bought this Origami Paper Star kit. I remember us making these stars on the bus ride home. I still have those stars, and I used them to decorate our wreath this year:
There were still some left, so I thought to use them for my ornaments this year. I dug out the original instruction which is, by the way, in Japanese. I asked our exchange student what the title said, and she said Tape Origami Star.
Then I have several of these which I bought on a separate trip - I think in Thailand. I knew they were for making Origami Stars. And I was right.
It did take me a whole day to make the stars I needed for my ornaments. The size was perfect to put in the empty ornaments I got from a craft store. Then I added small bells for a final touch. I sure am very happy with the result.
Then I had some nice bags which I folded and tied with a string with the ornaments attached. It's perfect to put gifts received during our Christmas party.
These ornaments were a hit. I'm glad!
Merry Christmas everybody... 'til next blog!
