Botanical Origami – Ornaments

Date and Time:
Date(s) - Saturday, December 1st, 2012
1:00 PM - 4:00 PM

This program has been cancelled.

Learn how to fold decorative paper into lovely ornaments.  No previous paper-folding experience required.

Learn a great way to use those odds and ends of gift wrap paper to create wreaths and hanging ornaments using just a few simple folds.  The flat ornaments can be attached to card stock to make unique holiday cards or placed on gift packages in place of bows.  The 3D ornaments will look great hanging from a tree, mantle or chandelier during holiday celebrations.  Non-holiday themed papers can be used to create year round decorations, and coating your ornaments with an acrylic sealer will enable them to be displayed again for many holiday seasons.

Stimulate your mind by learning a new skill with individualized instruction from paper artist, Rich Gray in this one-day workshop.  Students should bring small, sharp-pointed scissors (such as embroidery scissors) and a ruler – all other supplies included in fee.
