Christmas Origami

A couple of Border's clearance sales ago, I bought the Dover Publications title 3-D Geometric Origami. I had always intended to use the patterns in that book to create origami Christmas ornaments. This year I finally got around to doing just that. I was delighted with my first attempt at a puzzle box, one of the easiest of the patterns in this book.

Since I can't reprint the patterns from that book for you, I decided to go looking on the Internet for patterns already available. There's a lot of origami on the web. I was absolutely amazed at what some origami artists create from paper. Below you'll find links to patterns that are suited for creating your own origami Christmas ornaments.
