Origami Teardrop Ornament

Origami Tear Drop Ornament
This gorgeous teardrop ornament designed by Rae Cooker may be found in New Ideas For Paperfolding by Gay Merrill Gross. I made it with one square sheet of 15cm handmade Japanese paper, a clip, and a red ribbon. The result, a handmade paper Christmas tree ornament 8cm in length.

The clever design is easy to fold. The chiyogami paper has a crane pattern. No scissors, glue or tape used! Looking for Christmas gifts? Please check out my Canadian and USA aStore's.
