3. Junk Mail Paper Crane Tree
Flimsy junk mail paper, like catalog pages, works beautifully as origami paper. You just need to cut your paper into perfect squares, and you’re ready to fold paper cranes, origami stars, or whatever else strikes your fancy!
Last week at Dollar Store Crafts, I shared a guest post on how to use junk mail and fallen branches to create paper crane tree decoration. We have ours on a shelf in the foyer, but I think this would look great on a mantle, in a window, or even as a table centerpiece. If cranes aren’t your thing, you can really fold anything you like to adorn this repurposed junk mail tree!
