How to Make Paper Stars
Now, first things first - credits: I made them following the clear and lovely tutorial at ANNEKATA blog. (Kathrin, your Super Easy Paper Stars tutorial rocks, girl!!)
I had tons of other work to do, yet the simplicity and the glam effect of these beauties made me stop and grab some decorative paper and start cutting and gluing. This was the result. Isn't it just PERFECT for a party at Christmas or New Year?
I'm sure you'll want to make some for your home, too. Depending on the paper pattern, this need not be solely a Christmas and New-Year decorations. I think I'll keep mine all year long. Well, as long as they survive, but this might be longer than I think.
I, for example, was curious enough to hand them to my toddler. Since they are so lightweight, he would handle them really gently, using precise and slow-motion movements when taking them in his hands and placing them back. On a side-note: it's incredible how sensitive the little hands are: give a toddler something sturdy - it will be tossed around, even land on the floor from time to time. Give him something gentle, breakable, he'll handle it with all due care and love. And we think kids just don't get it!
Supplies To Make Diy Paper Stars
But I digress; check if you've got these materials on stock:
- paper or cardboard
- pencil, scissors, glue
- a string or some twine (see how to make your own twine)
A note on the material used for these easy paper stars: origami paper will be probably best, but even cardboard or gift-wrapping paper will do just as fine. Just bear in mind that it's easier to work with sturdy paper.
You do have these materials, right? Now, off to the blog of the clever girl who came up with the idea (annekata, see above) for these stars and - help yourself to a star or two!
