Paper crafts: origami globe for kids

Making toys, Origami, Paper crafts, Video  |  September 12th 2011  |  0 Comment


There are 10 weeks left until Christmas. And because ten is such a pretty round number, I thought I should take the opportunity to share ten different Xmas projects with you, one every week, covering handmade gifts, packaging ideas, decoration and cooking. It is never too early to get ready for Christmas, right?

This week, I am going to show you how to make an origami globe (the idea is from Tomoko Fuse’s Foral Origami Globes). I used 17*17 cm origami paper, so I could show you all the details. To make smaller decorations for your Christmas tree, you should use smaller origami paper (12*12 cm or 8*8 cm). The nice part about this project is that it lets you combine two different paper colors (or patterns) to fit your tree design or mood. You can even make a larger one for the top of the tree.

Below is the presentation I prepared for you. I tried to make it as easy to understand and follow as possible, but if you need further clarifications, don’t hesitate to buzz me.

If you’re preparing nice things for Christmas, I’d love to see what you’re doing. Just add the link of your blogpost in the linky gadget below.
