DIY holiday decor: origami box ornaments

Adding on to my post from yesterday about holiday decorations made from paper, here's another great DIY idea for holiday decorations on the cheap and trying to be green (this is reusing at its best!). Samantha Miller of PAPER RED SHOES created this awesome work of origami that can be made from book pages, newspaper, sheet music or the like.

Full instructions on how to do this, along with step-by-step photos, can be found at Creature Comforts.

I consider this one to be attempted by super-crafters only. (I think I'm pretty crafty, but I don't know if my fingers are up for this.) I don't think I'd have the patience to intricately fold several (or even one) of these, but don't they look pretty hanging in a window?

They'd obviously be great on a tree, too, or adorning a mantel or ledge. So pretty and cool!
