Ahem. Anyways, here is one mini strand I already made, plus some more of the pretty paper:
Here's a close up. I love the paper. Most origami sheets are bright, springy, girlish colors but after digging around in Michael's supplies of the stuff, I found, in true Christmas-miracle style, a package of more muted, sultry, romantic shades:
I'll be doing several of these strands to hang in the window. I was going to do garlands, but I decided for a more contemporary spin on it, and I will just hang them vertically in a staggered fashion, sort of like how icicle lights look. I think I might try to do some origami stars to throw into the mix too.
That's the shortest one by far. I have a longer one but since I'm not even halfway through the 100 sheets, and haven't even gotten to some other patterns, I will more than likely dismantle the already made ones so I can properly mix up the patterns for a more even look. You know, in case you were absolutely burning up with curiosity over the matter.
Anyways, this is how I'm spending my weeknight evenings until Christmas Eve:
Thanks for the help, Rob!
