Barmy Origami

I’m not generally big on paper crafts.However while at work yesterday one of the Pharmacists showed me how to make my first piece of Origami – the crane (yes, I was having a really busy day. Ha).

I was instantly hooked. Obsessing over every fold. My crane now sits proudly on my Christmas Tree this morning. Oh yes – the Christmas Tree is now up. I’ll do a post on the my Nordic tree later I think.

Magazine Christmas Tree

Can’t believe I’m starting my Christmas crafts already, I must be mad. Discovered these fab magazine Christmas Tree decorations on the Martha Stewart website today and had a spare hour or two. The instant results appealed to me too. I’m all about fast craft.

This christmas craft is crazy easy and a bit like making paper aeroplanes. Try handbag sized magazines too for a mini tree. They look super cool naked or fancy up your tree with some spray glitter or paint.
