Fun that's free: Who doesn't want that? Save any decorative paper that you have left over from presents, especially the holographic, sparkly, twinkly and shiny types. Small pieces are fine for the stars themselves or to decorate plainer paper. ( Get family and friends to give you theirs.) Fun, Fun, Fun. Have a great craft day and share this instructable with others. Fun that's free.
[[ Please note]] I have added some extra explanations where It was called for. I am unable to remake the Instructable (no camera) so feel free to ask any questions and I promise to reply. Craftv.
Step 1: Materials and Tools
I square piece of paper (that's it).
Size: For the purposes of the Instructable I have used a two sided paper so you can see more easily which is front and back.
The patterned side will be the star.
You can use plain white paper, If you mess up as you practice that's all it costs, 1 piece of paper.
The size of the square will be the same size as the completed star.
The larger silver and red stars are made of 3 layers of Holographic paper, one on top of the other. [They look like 3D.]
For the purposes of this instruction I shall say patterned or plain side of paper (even though you may not be using a one sided paper).
Step 3: Fold in four across.
Step 4: FLIP PAPER OVER TO PATTERNED SIDE. Diagonal Fold
Fold the patterned side together point to point across the diagonal and crease well. Fold across the other diagonal and crease well. Open up and see the crossed lines in place.
[NOTE] Apologies . Please flip the paper to the patterned side before this fold. The result is valley folds edge to edge and mountain folds across the diagonal.
