These baubles are made from Vivi Gade Design paper (the Copenhagen series) which is folded, using the origami folding technique.

Guide step 1
1.
Cut a sheet of design paper in half; this is now a rectangular piece of paper. Note that the paper has a unique design on each side, so one sheet of design paper gives you two different looks.
