Here is my attempt at holiday origami. The fox is my favorite. If you want to create your own fox, a tutorial can be found here.
If you are looking for holiday gift ideas, this origami crane ornament is adorable and can be hung on the tree for the holidays or displayed year round as cute glass decoration. I don't remember where the clear glass balls came from, but I'm sure they can be bought at craft stores. The cranes were made out of small squares that I cute from wrapping paper. Aside from that, you need a tiny piece of thread and any medium size bead and you can make your very own ornament.

Once the crane was inside the ball I took the opposite end to the sting and I wound the string through the silver attachment on the glass ball. When the crane was hanging in the correct place in the ball I clipped the silver top back in place. Since the silver attachment is above the desired location until it clips into place you must be sure to take this into account when placing the crane.
Have fun folding!
