Have you seen these little stars made from strips of paper?
When Patricia from Zen Crafting first posted her origami stars, I immediately did a Google search for a pattern. While I didn't find the pattern she used (this was before she posted her tutorial), I did find a tutorial for a different origami star:
Make Origami Paper Stars - The best video clips are here
I grabbed my Sundance catalog, ran to my paper cutter and started chopping. Then folding. Then teaching my children and my children's friends how to make more stars. They are just so cute and tiny and adorable. Irresistible really.
But what does one do with a bunch of mini origami stars? Maya suggested stringing them to make a garland; she also filled a glass jar with stars. Very cute idea.
I simply strung several stars onto a short length of wire and formed a mini wreath with a little hook on top for easy hanging. My daughter wants two so she can wear them as earrings.
Origami, stars, recycling, easy, fast - what's not to love about this craft?
