This is using one of my favourite origami flowers, which are a little time consuming to make, but worth it, and because it is quite a robust design, the flowers can be made from good quality Christmas wrapping paper, which helps with the pennies! There are several websites giving instructions on how to make these flowers, here is one.
Add die-cut leaves that have been embossed and dipped in Christmas sparkle, and a big bow - perfect!
Here is Sharon showing off her creation, and a close-up..... love the rich reds and greens!
Talking about origami, a couple of months ago I used a flat origami flower design to create a card see here.
It uses circles of paper, and I wanted to know how it would look using scalloped circles - quite a pretty effect.
