So I teach an arts and crafts class twice a week and thought I’d share some of our Christmas projects with you :)

They’re cheap.
They’re easy.
And, damnit, they’re pretty!

You will need:

  • scissors
  • adhesive or a stapler
  • pretty paper
  • hole punch
  • ribbon
  1. You want paper. Stiffer Is better I think, but really anything will do that looks nice. You can use magazine pictures, wrapping paper, left over wall paper is great if you can get it, origami paper, or even just craft paper :)
    Cut it into a square and fold it twice into a triangle shape
  2. Draw some guide lines from the closed edge (the folded edge that does not open).
  3. Cut along these lines. Make sure you don’t cut all the way to the edge.
    Feel free to cut it free hand with out the guidelines or vary line shape or thickness.
  4. Open up your folded wedge and mark every second flap that you cut. Grab the two centre most flaps and pinch them back with your fingers until they over lap in the back making a role. If they can’t touch,  use the next ones out instead.
  5. Pinch those flaps together in the back and glue them. If you don’t have glue or are strapped for time, a stapler or small cut tape work fine too.
  6. Keep folding your flaps forwards and backwards from the centre out until you’re finished. Once it’s all dry you can punch a hole at the top and tie a ribbon on to hang on your tree or from your garlands

Happy Crafting!
