I can’t believe that’s origami! Well, it’s woven rather than strictly folded, but the classic traditional Swedish Star is the basis for this truly spectacular creation. Learn how to make several Swedish Stars and then string them onto a floral wire circle to make a beautiful wreath. Sandy will provide enough paper for practice and for a full wreath, along with printed instructions, wire, and a plastic wreath carrier. Please note that this modular project requires 22 stars, each out of 4 woven strips…be prepared to be busy!

Joseph Adia

Cue creepy shark music! Add to your sealife collection without getting wet (unless of course you wet fold one) with this great white shark. This bird base model has an easy-to-follow folding sequence that should not scare any intermediate folder comfortable with squashes, crimps and sinks.
