Weekly Inspiration – an Origami Christmas

Yes, I am aware of how far away Christmas is. But if there are potential craft fairs to be done at the end of November, these things need thinking about now.

I’ve made a few origami crane mobiles now and have got the hang of them. Whilst thinking of things to make for the Christmas craft stall, I had a little lightbulb moment. Christmas  Origami decorations. I want to make garlands of origami stars, little Christmas trees to hang on Christmas trees, pretty paper baubles and so on and so forth.

Origami Resources

I do already have a couple of origami books with suitable projects and ideas in, but I also found some handy websites:

I can’t wait to get started! First up, I need to go paper shopping. I’m thinking red, green, gold, silver, dark blue and white. Second up, I’m going to make lots of these christmas origami lucky stars as I think they look awesome.

Christmas Origami Inspiration

Here are just a few of the things that are inspiring me to have a go at my own versions of Christmas Origami:

Lunchtime Lusting- Robochoc Silikomart moulds

Robochoc. Yes, you guessed it, robot shaped chocolates. Who wouldn’t want robot shaped chocolates? I want them. See how awesome they look:

Eee! I saw them in Abraxas (one of the best shops in Northampton) and fell in love. I then made the mistake of looking up the Silikomart website, where I also fell for these:

The trouble is, I actually need some more truffle moulds- it’s just a case of whether I am sensible and go for the plain ones, so I can sell batches of nicely matching, classic-looking truffles and chocolates… or whether I get ones shaped like robots and little animated people.

Weekend Baking- Star Wars shortbread

Team Craft Fantastic were very busy this weekend baking and making. We made shortbread with the Star Wars cookie cutters, splitting the dough in half and adding green food colouring to one and cocoa powder to the other.

 

Geeky shortbread, anyone?
