Origami Christmas

Hi all and welcome to another post.

My card today has been made using skills learned at a workshop in Dublin hosted by the lovely and very talented origami artiste Naomi Fleury. Naomi patiently, slowly and thankfully repetitively taught us how to do various origami folds.

A special thin type of origami paper is used to achieve the sharp folds. I've added bow and bells from stash.

Wishing everyone a happy day wherever you are in the world. x
