My husband folds these really fun origami stars. My wheels were turning on ways to make our Christmas tree a little more fun and I decided to string these stars just like you would popcorn and use them as garland around the tree. My husband plans on making a tutorial on how to fold the stars at his blog, Stephen's Origami. I will update with a link to that post when he gets the chance.
I think it added some fun and some more color to our tree and I am happy about it despite my sore thumb.
