Using Origami to Decorate Your Packages

Four Point Star Origami

If you're still working on wrapping Christmas presents, consider folding a four point star to use as an unusual twist on the traditional package bow. This design looks especially pretty folded from metallic origami paper. You can even layer two stars together for added interest. Check out the complete step-by-step instructions in our new Four Point Origami Star Decoration tutorial.

Although stars seem appropriate for Christmas, there are lots of ways to use origami to dress up your packages. You could fold a small envelope with a note to the recipient to use in place of a gift tag. If the recipient is too young to read, you could fold a simple picture frame with his or her photo in it. I also like the look of origami lilies or origami cranes on packages

What are your favorite ways to use origami to decorate your holiday packages?
