Kusudama Chirstmas Origami Ornaments

Here's an idea for personalizing your tree this year....

Recycling paper is one of many things we can to to protect our environment, so instead of disposing our old magazines and the of catalogs and paper junk we receive, why don't use it to make some nice ornaments for Christmas?
They are cheap and safer for your children than the traditional glass balls.

Here's video tutorial how to make a beautiful Kusudama.
