Featuring Painted baubles, S$13 each; White heart ornaments, S$6 each, both from Tangs
An old magazine is all you need; preferably one with stapled binding instead of perfect binding. Pull the cover off and fold each page according to these steps:
1) Bring the upper right corner down across the page till it reaches the binding and press it down to form a triangle.
2) Repeat the step by bringing the diagonal edge of the paper towards the binding again and press it down.
3) Take the protruding triangular end at the bottom and fold it up so that it levels with the rest of the magazine.
Featuring Pine cones, S$18 (pack of 12), from Tangs. Tiny baubles in silver, S$9.90 (pack of 20); Wood grain table runner, S$19.90, both from Robinsons
