Make It…Origami Garland
We were enchanted by an origami garland, featured on Discover Paper a while back, made from strips of patterned scrapbooking paper. We immediately envisioned the star-studded garland in a holiday setting and opted to put a fresh and festive spin on the time-honoured tradition of folding paper by repurposing remnants of wrap from the studio. For a surprising dose of yuletide cheer, we chose an eclectic blend of patterns in yellow, aqua, peach and charcoal. – Amy
