When I think of the holidays, bold sparkly jewelry comes to mind. That reminded me of these metallic origami rings I made a few years ago. What makes these rings stand out is the choice of paper. I used a metallic ombre crepe paper to fold them. The thickness of the crepe paper creates a sturdy structure. It also makes it easy to work with since the paper bends easily (also forgiving if you make a mistake). If you don’t have crepe paper, any other paper will do.
