I saw this origami star card using hexagons on Pinterest and wanted to create a unique ornament using this clever fold.
As you can see from the link, the original uses a punch which I did not have, so I turned to a Sizzix die called Honeycomb from Tim Holtz's Alterations line. They were just the right size for an ornament.
Here is how I created this ornament.
1. Create a hybrid print using a digital scrapbooking application. Choose 2 lined backgrounds and layer. Increase the transparency of the top layer so the bottom layer shows through, creating a plaid. I used Club Scrap® Digital's Gnome for Christmas 2013.

3. Die cut the hexagon shapes.
4. Fold six hexagons as shown.
|*note- I started with much larger hexagons and realized I needed to make them smaller.|
Hang on the tree and enjoy!
