The weekend was ripe with potential. And then I got laid out flat with some kind of cold/sinus/fall muck. So I decided to spend Saturday and Sunday playing around with paper and trying to figure out which origami ornament would be the one I make for all my friends and family for Christmas.
YouTube and a stack of misprints got me started. I really enjoyed how easy this star was to make.
After the first few hours, I was the only one being entertained by folding paper.
And then I started a more complex shape. Making this beast got me through the rest of my weekend illness. Getting sick on the weekend is the worst. Now that I work outside of the home again, weekends are a treasure. And to just get sick. Annnnnoying.
I started to putter out, but Gregory was like “get back to work and get-er-done!”
I got half way finished and I realized I had actually only folded 15 of the 30 moduals. Lame. Back to folding! But I finally finished. About 6+ hours total on this babe.
It’s lovely and I enjoyed the challenge of making it, but unfortunately there’s not enough time between now and Christmas to make 10 of them. So back to the drawing board for me. I may use the star pattern, but I want to try it with quite a few different paper and variations.
