I love beautifully wrapped Christmas presents, but looking at the big picture it is fair to say Christmas wrapping paper is a huge waste. Therefore, this year I decided to reuse some of it for origami. Check out the results:
Left: Coconut sitting among the presents on Christmas Eve.
Right: Used wrapping paper folded into an origami Christmas tree.
Origami monkey heads made out of paper bags.
More paper monkeys.
I also made cranes and reindeer and gave them to the members of my family. Folding the used Christmas wrapping paper made it seem like less of a waste. I also extended my monkey family.
