Big Origami Star
recently, i made this fun project for my daughter’s birthday party. so i know that 10 year old girls can make this project, so anyone should be capable of making these wonderful stars. as long as you have 2 square sheet of paper, you can make it any size. i think the scrapbooking paper works best since it easily holds it shape.
here are the supplies you’ll need:
2 square pieces of paper
glue (elmers or a glue gun)
pen or pencil
fold paper in half with wrong side up. fold it both ways.
turn paper right side up and fold in a triangle, fold both ways.
your paper should look like this…
mark on backside of paper a point that is just less than half from the edge to the middle. mark on 4 of the folds
cut paper from outside edge to the point on the fold. do this on all four points.
on backside of paper, fold each section to a point.
place hot glue or elmers on one side and top with other side of paper and glue down.
your star should look like this. now repeat the above steps and make a second star.
you now should have 2 stars that look like these
glue underneath one star near the opening. then attach to the backside of the other star. offsetting the points to make a 8 point star.
use a hole punch and place a hole near the top of one point. be careful not to punch too close to the edges.
your hole will look like this, now thread a ribbon through to hang the star.
your star will look like this!
