Upon a Fold

A little peek into the world of paper artistry

DIY star ornament by jun mitani... December 13, 2010

My first folded ornament for 2010! What do you think? I found this charming DIY ornament template by Jun Mitani today. I downloaded it, and made it, and now I think I’ll make a few more! It’s a pretty, paper folded Christmas ornament by one of my favourite paper artists. It makes a great gift tag too – there is even room inside to include a teeny tiny gift. You can download the template here. Beginners beware ;) – this is not an easy star to fold – it’s a bit of a paper puzzle! Hope you have fun solving it! Jun Mitani folds the most amazing things with paper. Tomorrow, I’ll post more of his amazing folds.

Could you please include step-by-step instructions? I followed the link to the template, cut the paper, drew the lines, but I don’t know how to proceed to shape the star! Please please help, I’d like to make these as gift tags. Thanks a lot!!

Great find! Thanks for sharing. Glad I read this before Christmas! :)

Hi Aurélie, The blue lines are mountain folds and the red dashed lines are valley folds. Score along all the lines and the rest is just fun fiddly folding :) Dr Mitani has not provided step by step instructions for this project. I just experimented with paper first and then moved up to card. Happy folding!

Hello there! My name is Karol and I just desired to say your blog is great! It really is surprising simply because I use to have a blogging site that nearly had an identical website url: http://uponafold.com. au/blog/post/diy-star-ornament-by-jun-mitani/ mine was only a few letters different. Anyhow, I’m a big supporter of your website and if you at any time would like a guest write-up make sure you email me at: paige_theriault@t-online.de. I take pleasure in writing!
