Paper Star Ornaments


I've been getting a lot of paper crafting images on Instagram and decided to play with this shape... She's got 2 versions of making it, but I prefer the older version...
IG: easy_crafts.officialsize: 

approx 2.25"w
Using Bogus Recycled Sketch Paper.

Cut 8 squares 2.5" each. Fold in half point to point. Fold the left and right points to the half crease creating a pointed triangle shape. 
(a) Fold down the small triangle. (b) Fold the left and right points to the center fold. Put a small dab of glue to these points on the inner side and adhere to the triangle from (a). Make sure not to let glue go anywhere else.

Continue with other 7 pieces of paper. When all are assembled glue one to the other on the little glued outside triangle from (b)

I added an edge of Stickles gold glitter on each top edge. Adhere a string for hanging. I punched a small hole very near the edge of 2 of the star points and added a bead to hold it closed. It can still be folded closed as a thick triangle to put away.  


Geli Print Star Ornament (6 points)
size: approx 5.5"w

Using Columbia Mills End Paper geli printed. Cut 6 squares 4" each square.

This sure would be a good way to use some of the excess designer papers in my collection. Pretty!
