My Christmas Ornaments from the Exchange!

Time to share the ornament I made for my exchange partner
 Kim from The Sasse Life 
and the ADORABLE one she made for me as well. 

Here is the one I made for her...
My first attempt at an origami ornament! It took a while to make but was fun as well. It would look really cute in older book pages as well. 

Here is how you can make one too!
I used an old devotional book that had gold edges which I liked!

Cut book pages 3.5x3.5
{You are going to need quite a few so make sure you have enough pages}

Fold one corner to the top making a triangle.

Fold those corners to the top point

It should make a square

Fold the top corners down to the bottom outwards.

Glue the bottom corners together creating a petal. 
You will repeat this 8 times per flower.

Then you will glue the other flowers together at their base. 
They will all fit together like a puzzle!

When you are on the last flower make sure to glue in the ribbon!

And now the one that Kim made me!

Isn't it amazing! It's our little family in snowmen!!!
I love it, thanks so much Kim. Go check out her awesome blog!
