Origami Card Ornament

This project was just fun. I like origami and stamps and stickers and got to use them all. My ingredients were an old National Geographic map for the origami (the quality of the paper is wonderful - fine and strong and it folds crisply), watercolour paper for the stamped cover, ocean themed stickers from my collection, ribbon and a bead.
I used a pattern from the book Origami Card Craft by Karen Elaine Thomas . My project is the one featured on the cover of the book.
I have hung the folded card on the Christmas tree as an ornament.

The card open to display map and sticker pages.
