Last year I was given a Christmas Ornagami Book. Get it? Ornaments made with Origami.
One of my favorite ideas in the book is a 5 pointed star. I decided to give it a whirl and I am glad I did. Love it.
My supply list included:
12x12 sheet of cardstock scrapbook paper cut into 4 6x6 pieces of paper
Distress Ink (optional)
Decorative paper brad (optional)
I followed the easy instructions in the book.
(Instructions from Ornagami: An Origami Christmas at Your Fingertips by Gay Merrill Gross, copyright Quirk Packaging 2005, 2007.) I have permission to share them with you so you can make one too.
The instructions go back to #1 here because the first set were for a pentagon base. The 2nd set if for the star.
This photo shows the paper brad from the back.
I rubbed the finished star onto the ink pad to get the distressed look.
This is a very inexpensive and easy way to make handmade ornaments, gift tags or home decor. I think glitter would be a great addition to try. I also think this would be super cute hung at different levels on a wall mirror.
Will you be making one? What will you do with your star?
