Christmas Stars Tutorial

Paper Stars
Hi friends I love making handmade decorations and every Christmas I do try to make something handmade! Sometimes it is really elaborate and sometimes it is something very very simple.
So for my DT post for Maureen's Rudolph Days Challenge  am sharing a quick and easy to make Christmas decoration - a Paper Star which is rather unique in that you can fold it and keep it away for easy storing.
Christmas Stars

These  3 dimensional stars  were made with 6 squares of paper ,each measuring 12 cm[4 ¾ inches] and the complete star measures 6.5 inches.

I used  the new Crealies Squash fold die[the same one I used to make the Apron Squash fold albumto quickly cut out the squares as they have the score lines in place but you can also hand-cut the squares
Christmas Stars
Since you will be able to see all the sides of these stars ,if you are using single sided pattern paper you can stamp the reverse of your squares before you assemble the squash folds into a star.
You can alternately use double sided papers or make your own special Christmas stars using your favorite Christmas stamps!
Stamp the squares
You can use 5 squares to make a 5 pointed star or use 6 squares to make a more symmetrical 6 pointed star like I did.
You need not glue the last square but just hold it apposed to the first square using paper clips !
Here is the Tutorial 



Dont forget to drop in at Maureen's Rudolph Days Challenge with a Christmas Project...the Challenge runs till Nov 30th and Maureen always has wonderful prizes for a random winner.

  24. These are so beautiful, Sonia. I am going to give them a try too.

    My grandkids are always looking for crafts to do once school is out. They love to make things with Grandma that week between Xmas and New Years.

    I think will work out well for them. They are quite arty and enjoy finishing off a project like this.

    Thanks for all your work this year for the Rudolph DAys Challenge Design Team.
    I have gifts ready to go out to you and the other ladies but the Canadian Postal Service is on strike here and International Mail can take till MArch to be processed and sent. it is due to the backlog.

    Will advise once I am able to mail them.
