Christmas Origami Moon and Angel

This week I will show you two tutorials how you fold a moon and an angel to decorate your Christmas tree with! For the moon I tried using both aluminium foil and ordinary paper you use for your printer, and I think it is better to use ordinary paper or baking paper (like the one I used for the angel, see tutorial) if you would like a more transparent and graceful moon. Foil is very sensitive and as you can see on my moon in foil it has many wrinkles. Personally I like it best without all those wrinkles but maybe that is the appearance you are looking for! The angel is an abstract symbol more than a full detailed figure, perfect for you who likes the simple and clean look. On the back of the angel there is a pocket just beween the wings, which you can use to put the angel in the top of your Christmas tree :)
I found these origami models in a book called "Origami - konsten att vika papper", or in English "The Origami Bible", by Ashley Woods. Click on the titles to get to one Swedish and one English webshop.

Happy folding everyone!
