Many years ago, one of the kids brought home a lovely ornament made of simple construction paper triangles. Inspired by the clever but easy fabrication technique, we made a bunch of triangles and came up with some fun designs of our own.
This is the original ornament: twelve triangles glued together, one side of the finished snowflake/Star of David dipped in glue and then in glitter. Elegant and beautiful in its simplicity.
If I get industrious, I may post a how-to, with photos.
