How to Make a 3d Paper Star


I was in need of a star to top a rolled paper Christmas tree I am working on, so to be all matchy matchy, I made it out of paper.  Book pages to be specific!  Are you excited to see it?  Well, it should be finished soon - just working on a few little details.  And boy will I be glad when it is done!  My fingers can't take any more rolling.  Luckily this star only involves folding, giving them a break! 

All you need are a couple of paper stars and some glue.  I used Mod Podge.


Like the pictures show, start with one star and fold it in half at each point.  This will give you 5 creases.  Then fold the star in between the points in the opposite direction you folded the points.  Do this to both stars and then glue them together.  Use them for tree toppers, ornaments, shelf decor, or whatever your heart desires.

Just finished making this! It was pretty quick and a lot of fun. I used thick Christmas wrapping paper to make 7 stars and strung them on ribbon to make a Christmas garland - it's beautiful! I only made 1 side of the star instead of gluing 2 together, which worked fine since you won't see the back of my garland. Thanks so much for this idea!

I am inlove with paper DYI's :) These could also be made as tree ornaments.
