Origami "gift" ornament made from recycled magazine ad

To learn more about the tree and to check out some of the decorations up close, click on any box in the image at left. 

Wrapping paper isn't the only good source for making origami ornaments;
recycled magazine pages can also be fine candidates for folding. The inflatable balloon, also known as the water bomb (follow the directions at wicked4kids.com, skipping the final water-filling step), was one of the first origami shapes I ever learned to fold as a kid, and to this day, it's the only one I can make from memory. It's a cute and very cheap substitute for the traditional glass balls that fill out a Christmas tree, and tied with a contrasting ribbon, it looks like a holiday gift.

keep moseying on the tour...
