Origami ornament

I was so impressed by the ornament on Shelly's blog that I wanted to make one of my own.  I had my Christmas stamps and papers out from all the cards I had been making, but I just wanted to do something that wasn't a card.  I found this pattern for making an origami ornament, so I grabbed some Christmas glitter cardstock and gave it a go.
I couldn't get the focus right for anything, but I think you can make out the glitter strips, and I thought that the embossed and popped out sentiment  looked very fun on the bare sides.  I used striped paper mostly because I was curious about how the stripes would end up, but I have some patterns that I think would be really fun used this way.

Challenges:
SweetStamps - Christmas ornament
Ruby's Rainbow - anything but a card
Clear It Out - Christmas in July
