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.
