Spectacular Paper Flower Star Decoration Tutorial

Paper Star Decoration
You may have seen this paper star on the net  under different names . This Paper Star was one of the decorations we made for my daughters birthday recently.This flower like Paper star is so simple to make yet so spectacular to look at that I thought I would share how we made it.
Materials Required

  • Paper-Not very thick.Thin chart paper is good enough for a fairly large star.Even thin origami paper works well for smaller stars.
  • Scissors
  • Stapler
  • Scale and Pencil optional- No need if you have steady hands!
You need 6 squares of paper.Here our squares are quite huge as they are to serve as party decoration.
Fold the square diagonally as shown.
Fold the resultant triangle once again


Paper Star Decoration Tutorial
Mark 3-4 parallel lines on the triangle as shown
Cut the lines towards the central fold but not reaching it
On opening your square should like like this

Paper Star Decoration Tutorial
Roll the innermost 2 cut strips towards you and staple.
Turn over and staple the next layer of strips
Turn again and staple till you have completed stapling all layers and you have got the petal of your flower star.
Paper Star Decoration Tutorial
 Make petals of the flower star using all 6 squares of paper.You need to have the same number of cuts at fairly equal distances. A little bit of error is OK.
Take 3 petals and staple together at the tip as shown to get half of your Flower Star. 
Staple both the halves together . Now your star is nearly done.
Staple the arms of the stars together at the corners where  they meet and you are done.Now  you have a sturdy star which you can hang as decoration.
If you make a small star you can use it as an embellishment but its fairly tricky cutting up smaller scraps of paper.
The last picture is my little helper applying glitter on her Pink Birthday Star Flower.

Paper Star Decoration Tutorial
If you have not tried this before do try- its very easy and quick to make.No messy glue involved at all [though we all love glue don't we!] And the result is spectacular.

  45. beautiful star. It reminds me of the paper uri (in tamizh) which i used to make during my childhood days. But onefine day recently i remembered that but could not succeed in my attempt. Will you be able to provide the procedure for that. 'uri' is a tyred layer hanger to keep the dahi handis in above the other.
