{12th day of christmas: origami tree}

Happy Christmas Eve! I'm posting on a Saturday to round out our 12 Days of Christmas Crafts, but also because I'm going to take a little time off from blogging next week. I'll be back to welcome 2012 on January 2!

I have a special treat (and a challenge!) for our final day of Christmas crafts... an origami tree! But not just any origami tree. One that has a 30 minute instructional video. Yeah. It's that awesome.

Actually, having watched the video in its entirety, it doesn't seem that un-craftable. I mean, yes, there are a lot of little folds, and making several tiers of trees is tedious... but how awesome does this origami masterpiece look in the end? Answer: really awesome. And totally worth it.

So, I challenge you: those who have created these crafts with me since the first day of Christmas: can you fold your own origami tree?
