IMPORTANT: It's been a while since I did this instructable and now that I reviewed it, I agree that some steps are a little bit confusing.
So if you cannot figure out some of the steps, or you want to learn how to do it quickly, then just read steps 1 to 3 and skip steps 4 to 9. Instead watch the video on step 10. Then follow the instructions on steps 11-12 to finish the ornament. The video shows the whole proces of making the medallion.
Of course if you like challenge, follow up all the steps and just skip step 10 :-)
Recycling paper is one of the many things we can do to protect environment, so instead of dispose our old magazines and the tons of catalogs and paper junk we receive, why don't use it to make some nice ornaments for Christmas? They are original, cheap and safer for your children than the traditional glass balls.
I'll show you how to do it, using origami techniques
You only need some magazines or catalogs, glue and a little bit of patience to make it.
Step 1: Materials
First gather the following materials:
Old magazines, catalogs, or any kind of paper you want to reuse. I recommend you to choose paper with nice colors.
Scissors (optional, if you have practice you can cut the paper with only your hands).
