So here it is, our advent calendar for this year :). Very very simple to make and I have already received many compliments from friends! I simply used some pattern designs that I created for watercolour challenge few months ago and it brighten up our living room already. Yey!
Each package contain origami idea which is great for me (I love learning something new!) and great with involving kids. I am planning to either teach Lukas how to make stuff by folding paper (for easy ones) or let him decorate completed origami item. I am also considering not to be stuck with using only paper. The possibilities are endless, regular blanket could turn into star for all you know. For those who are following me on social media be prepared for daily dosage of origami! You ready to make your own origami advent for this year? Then let’s crack on!
You will need:
- A4 or square size patterned paper, either printouts or shop bought gift wrapping paper
- number tags
- origami idea “ribbons”
- treats to add into the packages (optional and we decided to go without this year)
- a hanger
- string or slim ribbon
First, cut out all the tags and origami idea “ribbons”.Make all the packages for every 24 days. Begin with folding in corners (1.), then fold in the sides and insert all the contents (2.). Finally fold in the pointy corners once again on both sides (3) and secure it using double sided tape. Use a string or a ribbon to wrap the package like a gift (4.). Don’t forget to insert the tag before tying the knot. Once all the packages are complete, then all you need to do is tie them on the hanger and hang it on the wall. Happy Christmas waiting!
