Folded Paper Stars


 The Christmas season is officially upon us!
I have pulled out the decorations and found my German Star ornaments. I display them throughout the house.
Sharing again, my video for making these stars because it is one of my most popular posts.  

 The white, glittery stars have been dipped in wax and the blue ones have not.
The waxed stars are sturdier and weather resistant.
Years ago, my cousin gave me a pretty feather tree that she picked up on an after-Christmas clearance. I get many questions about where a feather tree can be purchased but I am sorry to say that I don't know. 

Want to learn to make folded paper stars (or just want a refresher)?

My video will walk you through each step as you watch every fold and turn.
Pause it whenever needed and resume until you have finished the star.
It is in two parts.
Part 1 will take you through all of the folds to create a flat star.
Part 2 shows how to create the points on both the front and back.

You can cut your own paper strips but I prefer to purchase them.

I love your stars. They remind me of something similar I made when I was a young girl. I may try to make them. Thanks for sharing your video - I'll check it out.

It's amazing what can be done with paper. I've loved paper crafts since I was a little girl. Your stars are perfect.

The stars are beautiful, Lorraine! Long, long ago, a father came to our door, selling them , as he was without a job. I always remember it when I look at that special ornament.

These are so elegant Lorraine. I've watched the video and think I'd like to try and make some myself.

Just a little something from Judy said...

I feel so honored to have my very own paper stars, made by you and gifted to me, last Christmas! I just took them out of storage and when I did, I thanked God for our visit and that you made them for me. Your white glittery ones are so beautiful!

I love this and of course, I pinned it to my Everything Christmas board.
