accordion paper trees.

paper xmas stars.

    made for xmas 2011. I used faux-hammered gold paper to make a tree topper this way. I found the easiest way to estimate the lengths of the cuts was to make the first cut and fold it to see if the length was right, fix it if not, and then use that as a guide. these are addictive. I used packing tape because I was too cheap to buy glue dots and too lazy to use glue.

easy advent calendar. this fits my needs this year -- simple, quick, and I don't need to buy supplies. the kids don't care if it's fancy, they just want to count the days down.
