Make a Folded Paper Three Dimensional Star

Kate Pullen

These cute little 3d stars are surprisingly easy to make and can be used in many ways. Thread a few onto a piece of string or ribbon to make a garland, thread a couple onto a piece of wire to make jewelry or place a few into a glass vessel to use as a decoration. The stars are formed from a single strip of paper. Decorate plain paper with rubber stamps or use pieces of scrapbooking or decorative paper.

While this star is very simple to make, you may find it helpful to try it using scrap paper first to get a feel for how the star is formed.

Tip: - instead of using a paper with an allover pattern, try stamping a single stamp into the center of the star. Use a small stamp and stamp the image before shaping the star.

Materials Required

  • Strip of paper (I used a strip of paper 11" x 0.5")
  • Rubber stamps, ink, glitter and other embellishments as required
