I had to send an embarrassing email to an editor this week. The project I was working on turned into a complete disaster, and it was time to call it. My vision of a tree filled with glittery origami shaped ornaments instead turned me into a sad crafter covered in paper cuts and double sided tape. Glitter paper had won the round.
But I’m either stubborn or stupid (or quite possibly both) because I refused to give up on origami. The cutting and folding continued, this time using a template from our diamond pinata necklace. Major learning: to make origami ornaments work regular ol’ card stock is the best – anything glittery or too heavy won’t hold the shape (unless you have industrial strength tape). Enter these diamond ornaments that look rather good:What have you been crafting up this week? Only 11 more days till Christmas – are you freaking out yet?
