Origami Candle And Candleholder

Origami Candle And Candleholder

Origami Christmas Tree Bauble

Origami Christmas Tree Bauble

These origami Christmas Tree baubles are based on the traditional origami “water bomb” model. You can make them in all sizes using origami paper, gift wrap cut into squares, scrapbooking paper or any special, glittery paper you can find.

Origami Church

Origami Church

This origami church is a little tricky to fold, so it's best for older kids. You can stand it up and have a 3D church (perhaps as part of a village scene), or use it flat for a Christmas card. You could even punch a hole in the top and hang it on the Christmas tree!

Origami Star

This is a very simple origami star which even the youngest children can make. As you will need three squares of paper and  a glue stick to complete the model, it isn't origami in the true sense!
