Some temporary objects to decorate your apartment with.
It is almost magical to see a flat piece of paper take on architectural shapes by adding a few well placed folds. After picking up a book on origami at the library, my kid and I got to folding some paper Christmas trees. Though the end result of these trees was quite cute, I liked them more when they were half way finished and didn't want to keep folding and cutting the paper into an obvious pine tree shape.

/ Stick the adhesive marble foil on half of your paper.(optional)
/ Fold your paper in half both ways and diagonally, creating four creases as shown on the third image. The bigger the paper, the better. I used a square of 50cm x 50cm.
/ Bring two opposite corners together and fold them inwards creating a small square as shown on the fourth image.
/ Fold the two outer corners towards the middle crease creating a kite shape, do this on both sides. It should look like image number five now.
/ Open up the entire thing and notice the architectural forms that the paper will take on (image six). It looks like a building or a tent, you could leave it as is.
/ To make the shape more triangular, pine tree-like, fold the creases that you have creating inwards and outwards, alternating.

CAn you send a link to where I can get this marble foil? I've been OBSESSING over the perfect marble to customize well basically EVERYTHING. I'm looking to put it all around the base of my bed frame which has an all white blanket and pillow situation and put gold adesive paper on the inside of every drawer and cabinet. And DEFINITELY every closet. Imagine opening your closet doors and its gleaming gold? So right. Thanks so much, Ruth Swanson
