Whether is it to decorate your home afresh in Spring with some added pastels, to celebrate your offspring with the best graduation party ideas or summer birthday party, or if it’s Thanksgiving, Christmas coming up, you’ll be able to use this tutorial for accordion paper fold vessels and put it to good use.
I personally like to add small origami decorations to my gifts, or as a gift, even!!! Hence this post today.
Last year, I made this 50-page series of gift wrapping, tags and cards ideas, techniques and tutorials. It contains the BEST and most original boxes and gift toppers as well. So, I honestly thought that this year, I would be writing about something else. Only to come across this amazing accordion paper folded vessel! It’s a vase – wrap, or, a perhaps-not-so-safe candle-holder-wrap. Or it’s a gift wrap!
In any case, it’s a paper vessel to be shown off. And, it’s the perfect match so some of the prior origami box tutorials already on that list. Like these diamond & jewel – shaped gift boxes …
Hence, I just have to share this according paper-folded candle holder now, even though you may wait till December to make it. However, if you’d make these from orange and chocolate scrapbooking paper, it will be perfect for October – November. Then, add glitter and polka dots, and you got yourself that outlandishly stylish gift wrap.
