After becoming addicted to basic sonobe modular origami, I decided to make ornaments for relatives as Christmas gifts.
I tried using fancy paper from stores like Paper Source, and cutting it to proper origami size, but I could never get the tight folds I wanted with non-traditional, non-origami paper. I ended up using this metallic origami paper that folds beautifully, and I'm pretty happy with the tiny models I ended up with. Forgive these pictures (iPhone/Instagram), I don't have my regular camera with me.
I'm planning on adding fishing line so these can hang from a tree. If you'd like to make your own version, there are instructions available here.
