I enjoy Origami and when I saw this box form, I thought, “this would make a great ornament.” As I was making them, I then realized they could also double as wrapping for a gift because they can be opened up. What an excellent idea to hang little gifts on the tree or make a lot of them for an Advent!

This post is a part of the Creative Craft Bloggers Group monthly craft challenge. For the month of December, we were challenged to make ornaments. At the bottom of this post, you can see all the entries and links to their tutorials.
You will need six squares of paper. I used 6″x6″.
Using one piece, fold it in half and then open it back up.
Fold each side into the centerfold.
Turn the paper over.
Diagram 1, fold C to F
Diagram 1, fold B to E
Diagram 2, fold D to E.
Diagram 2, fold A to F.
See the following video for an example of the folding and then how the pieces fit together.
