Paper crafts like origami can be a quick options if you want to make something that isn’t going to be time consuming. So if you’re in the mood for a make or are looking for a project to include as a last-minute gift, check out some cute options below!
The Toy Box origami channel offers loads of cute kawaii character versions of Christmas projects, but one that really speaks to be personally is this Sumikko Gurashi tapioca Christmas tree. It’s so cute and can even stand on its own to be a cute addition to your desk.
Speaking of Sumikko Gurashi, the same channel also has an adorable video on how to make an origami Shirokuma Christmas cake. It’s even large enough to work as a message card! It may be silly to say, but I really love this because it reminds me of the Christmas cake in Animal Crossing.
Toy Box also has many cat-themed versions of their designs too; my favorite is the tutorial for the Santa cat in a chimney because it could work well for a small gift or party favor by putting little candies or trinkets inside.
If you like more traditional themes, Dahchan has a lot of cute videos with themes like Santa, reindeer, snowmen, etc. My more recent choice of these is this cute 3D origami reindeer. I think it would work well as an ornament!
And the Origami Ako channel has a clever tutorial that shows you how to make a cute origami snowman using only one sheet. That makes it really easy and quick if you happen to need to make multiple for some reason.
If you’re in need of more last minute project ideas for the holiday season, also check out the extensive supply we’ve put together in the Christmas Crafts section.
