|Create beautiful handmade festive decorations with these Origami Decoration Kits by Ola. This kit contains everything you need to create 3D origami ornaments using Ola’s iconic pattered papers. The Benita pattern is inspired by the female designers of the Bauhaus; Anni Albers, Gunta Stolzl and Otti Berger. The geometric pattered papers come in two colours, navy and ochre. Each kit contains materials and instructions to make eight patterned decorations, as well as a link to Ola’s video tutorial which will walk you through the process, step by step. |
You’ll start by learning to make a sonobe module, a traditional Japanese origami pattern. The module is then put together to create two different decoration shapes – a pyramid and bauble – both of which will look beautiful either hung on your Christmas tree or adorning your home.
Once you’ve mastered the techniques, you’ll be able to use these skills year after year (we especially like repurpose used gift-wrap to save it from the recycling bin!)
