Stars made of paper can be a very impressive decoration of rooms. You can easily make such decoration yourself. See how to make a paper star!
There are many ideas for making paper stars. Below we show you how to make a phenomenal 3D star on your own, which will be perfect for example as a Christmas decoration. Here is how to make one.
What you need to make a paper star
To make an impressive 3D star you need 4 things:
- paper in any color
Step 1: Cut two squares of any size from the paper.
Step2: Fold the square in half horizontally, making sure to mark the fold line, unfold it, and then fold it vertically, also marking the fold line and unfolding it again
Step 3: Now fold the card diagonally following the same steps as above.
Step4: Unfold the card and use a ruler to mark half of the length of the fold lines – vertical and horizontal – from the edge of the card to its center.
Step5: At the marked points, cut the card from the edges to the point that marks the half-length.
Step6: Fold the cut pieces to the center, following the diagonal lines.
Step7: Brush the top side of the folded “wings” that make up the arms of the star with glue and glue them on top of each other – repeat for the other three arms
Step8: Now repeat all steps on the second square of paper.
Step9: Attach the stars to each other with the flat sides together, one of them laying diagonally – in this form they should be glued to each other. Brush the parts of one star that are in contact with the other with glue and carefully glue the stars together
