The Origami Continues

I can’t stop.  And I can’t stop buying papers either!  I picked up this cute little pack of papers for just £2.

When I got them home I found the pages were nice and thick, so I looked for a simplish pattern without too many folds.

I picked wrong.  This holiday star, from the EZOrigami YouTube channel has many more folds than I thought, and I couldn’t manage to get them all in.

So I tried again, with some paper I cut from a rainbow pad.  Standard paper.  Still too thick.  I managed to complete the pattern, but it looks awful

So I tried again, with some “proper” origami paper.  Nice and thin.

A lot easier!  But those little points in the middle were proving to be a pain in my backside!

But then, I couldn’t actually see what that last fold provided to the pattern, so I tried again, leaving that last fold out.  And now I have a gorgeous little star.

But I REALLY wanted to make something spectacular with my new papers.  So I made some decorations based on a picture I’d found on Pinterest while searching for Christmas ideas.

And then, because I had some strips left over I made a couple more froebel stars, like the one I made back here.

These ones are teeny tiny.  I may be a little bit obsessed with them.  I also made a Christmas colours version.
