Origami Starsea Kusudama

Here’s a sweet looking origami ball/kusudama by Tomoko Fuse. She really does design some of THE best kusudamas out there.

I’d imagine it making a great Christmas decoration/ornament, too. Some gold origami paper, and…

Moravian Star

Ever tried paper weaving? If not, here’s your chance to learn! This beautiful, Moravian (German) Star is great for home decor, especially during Christmastime (and throughout the year, too!).

Kirigami 3D Snowflake

Thought I’d do a tutorial on how to make a Christmas Star (it’s somewhat of a misnomer, since it’s appropriate for any occasion, I think!). It’s a very simple and fun project, especially with kids. Makes a great gift, too! Hang them on strings to make tree ornaments, or use oak-tag paper to make a…
