Modern Felt Ornament

I never miss an opportunity to combine art and math.
We did some lovely kirigami snowflakes last year, involving folding and fractions, so this year I found a sweet little felt ornament that served as a little lesson in shapes.

We learned how to make a square from a rectangle.

Then traced in the cutting lines with chalk in triangle shapes.

We had to fold each 'ring' in alternate directions before sewing in a stitch to hold the shape in place.

Then O made herself some LIPS!
