Origami, the art of folding paper, is a very effective way of creating beautiful and cheap decorations and displays.
There are hundreds of items, objects and animals that can be made with a few folds (some are trickier than others – don’t start with the Eiffel Tower). One on its own might not stand out, but imagine hundreds and it can make quite an impression. They could be hung from a ceiling, gathered on a table, or offered out as a gift with a message for people to take away.
The options are endless, from tiny stars, birds, and flowers, to miniature hats or boxes. Is there an item that symbolises something of interest for your community business? Could making them be an activity you run on the day with the people that come along? You can also use them to accept any messages and comments.
