Paper Christmas Tree Ornaments

This year we are keeping all those christmas tree ornaments in storage and forgetting about buying new ones. How about D.I.Y all season long. Today it’s all about paper christmas tree ornaments. Yes that’s right paper. Making paper christmas tree ornaments can be fun and inexpensive.  You can use paper in the colour and pattern of your choice to go with a scheme you may have in mind. You can also do patterned or plain paper, or even a mixture of both. There are several techniques that can be used to create these ornaments, basic origami being my favorite, simple because you can manipulate the paper into various shapes. Check out these AMAZING tutorials we found online.
