My eco-friendly origami paper inspires me to create Christmas trees and assorted animals which are elegant, yet easy to store. I mainly used Origami for Christmas by Chiyo Araki as a guide, but one can find dozens of Christmas origami ideas on the web, as well.
After spotting this elegant pair of foxes on a recent walk at the Wachusett Meadow Audubon in Princeton, MA, I was inspired to create an origami display that featured them. In Scandinavian folklore, foxes were believed to cause the northern lights, so “Foxfire” is the Finnish name for this unique atmospheric display. While Massachusetts is too far south for northern lights viewing, my mini-foxfire origami creation brightens up my holiday table.
