Origami Candy Cane

Okay, enough fattening treats for a while. Thanks for visiting another day of We Grow By Our Dreams' Red and White Week. Today, I'll teach you a really easy (and addicting) craft. I make these with the kids at work and they love it.

Origami Candy Cane
You'll need:
  • 1 piece of 8 1/2" x 11" white paper (like copy paper)
  • A red marker
  • A piece of tape (preferably double stick but whatever)
Color one short side and one long side of the paper red (about 1/4").
Now, flip over your paper. And start to roll up the corner that does not have the red lines.
Roll towards the corner where the red lines meet.
When you are done rolling, tape down the corner (under my thumb).
Then, take either end of your tube and roll around your finger 3-4 times.
Take it off your finger. Straighten it until it looks like a candy cane.  This would be great on a tree or on top of a gift.
Thanks for stopping by today. :) Leave a comment so I know you came by.
