Origami Christmas Tree

I can't believe I haven't posted on my blog for over a month. I've made another trip to Pittsburgh to settle my dad's estate and time just really seems to have flown by. As Christmas approaches I can't help but have wonderful memories of my parents and all the special things they did to make the holidays so magical for us. Although the memories are comforting, they are bittersweet. While remembering, I have often found myself crying when I really should be smiling. My emotions seem to be on a rollercoaster and I'll be very thankful when life starts smoothly coasting along again. Ok, enough of that!!!

I'm sharing a card today that is just one of several I made this weekend. My friend, and fellow SU demo, Sharon taught me this origami fold last year and I love these festive little trees. They are super easy to make and all you need is your favorite designer paper, some cardstock (SU whisper white, riding hood red, always artichoke, ribbon (SU Riding Hood Red) and a greeting. The greeting I have used is by Papertrey Ink. I hope you enjoy the card and thanks for coming back to visit. I promise I will try to do better in the future.
