Origami hangers from giftwrap?
Yes, it sounds a bit weird maybe, but it's definitely possible! The giftwrap from Motiflow is way thicker than the normal giftwrap you buy in most shops. Therefor it's perfect to use for hand craft and for origami art! The Motiflow giftwrap is also FSC-certified. In this blog we'll teach you how you can make origami hangers for that christmas feeling.
• Giftwrap - First choose the giftwrap paper you want to use. We chose this happy combination! Fun to also se how good the patterns from different designers go together.
• Gum/glue stick
• Optional: some festive glitters to make your origami hanger shiny!
How to make origami hangers
STEP 1: Choose your favourite patterns at Motiflow and order them on giftwrap. How about the patterns above?
STAP 2: Cut two equal squares out of the giftwrap paper. It's up to you how big you make them. We chose 30x30 centimeter.
STAP 3: Go to www.designoform.com and follow the steps for folding. You can also find many more fun tutorials on the internet (and Youtube)! In this tutorial you will make a half origami ball twice and then stick it together.
Let op! In case you want to hang your origami hanger, you'll need to make a hole in one side before you glue it together with a thread. we used some fish thread. On the inside we used a seal to fasten it. On the top side we also used a seal zo the thread won't be able to slide back in.
All I want for christmas is...
a lot of Motiflow paper craft!
By making different sizes of origami hangers you'll get a playful effect. Hang them up at different heights. How about above the christmas dining table? We also put them in the plates on the table for even more atmosphere. This way it can also be a cute, little. But of course you can also hang them in the christmas tree or in front of the window! What are you going to do with it?
