31 Days of Homemade Holidays! Day 29: Paper Stars

A couple more days and we come to the close of this 31 day series!  Has been a very crafty month here with some of my favorite homemade gifts yet to come in the next two days, don’t miss them!  Follow along on Facebook so you don’t miss out!

Day 29:Paper Stars!

I think these are so classy…they look challenging to make, but they’re really not, try it out!


Cardstock scrapbook paper (2 12×12 sheets/star), glue gun, ribbon, scissors

Begin by folding the paper corner to corner (both ways) and then side to side (both ways).

Then make 4 cuts not quite half way to the center of the paper on the side folded lines.  NOT from the corners.

Now lay the paper with the print side down and fold in the corners to make four points.

Pull in each of the corners and glue one triangle flap on the other.

Repeat all steps with the other sheet of paper to make two matching halves.  Then hot glue the two together to complete the star.

Add a ribbon and find a place to hang or prop them up on your mantle!

Leave me a comment and let me know what you think!  I’d love to hear from you on Facebook, too!

  1. These look great! I’m going to try to find some amazing homespun paper to try it with. Thanks for the tutorial!

  2. Actually I’m going to make these with kraft paper. It’s strong enough and I’ll stamp or stencil images on it before I put it together. First tho I’m going to try it on scrap paper. The stars are awesome and love them. What a great project and it does look fairly simple if I follow instructions. So glad you shared this project. I’m a little late finding you but just discovered your blog tonight thru Under the table and dreaming.

  3. Hey there, I think your website might be having browser compatibility issues.
    When I look at your blog in Chrome, it looks fine but when opening
    in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up!
    Other then that, very good blog!
