Okay, so this is the first time I’ve ever done this, but I’m going to live blog this post right now. I started off wanting to make this ornament for the holiday challenge that Allyssa blogged on Monday:
The one that looks like an origami stegosaurus, but as it turns out, it’s made of porcelain, and I am just not crafty enough to sculpt a small dinosaur to look like it was folded out of paper. Yeah right. However, it has inspired me to make a whole bunch of origami dinosaurs, and decorate my Christmas tree slash entire apartment with only dinosaur decorations.
So I googled, origami dinosaur and am going to start with this ferocious guy:
Oh and just a side note: I obviously do not have any origami paper in my apartment, nor do I have a ruler, so I’m just using a big square of regular paper.

I’m not going to give the entire play-by-play, feel free to check the link above if you want to make your own, but here are some intense action shots:
TA-DAAAAA! Well there you have it, Holiday Dinosaur decoration! I can’t even believe it worked. What’s not politically correct about that!? Fun for everyone! But really, it looks like a chicken, no? I just need to find a way to hang it up. I think this might actually be one of those year-round type of decorations.
