Tape Origami Star

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!
