Day 2 of the 12 Days of Christmas Series: Paper Star Tutorial

Paper Star Tutorial at 

Welcome all to the day 2 of the

12 Days of Christmas Series!

Today I have April from 

She'll show us how to make Paper Stars today!

Take it away April!

Hey Crafties, It's April here from and I am so excited to be a guest on CraftAllieBlog today helping count down the 12 Day of Christmas, woot woot! I'm a paper crafting fool from Williamsburg, VA, married and have a 3 year old son, Silas.

 Let me tell you, I LOVE paper (I abandon housework just to get in a little crafting time). I know it's bad. But here's the good news, YOU get the benefit of my crafting addiction today. I have this amazing, elegant star ornament that I am going to teach you how to make. I have a photo tutorial, directions, and even a little video to show you how to put it together. The finished star is approximately 6" x 6", so it's no tiny ornament. It is the perfect handmade gift for your coworkers, friends, neighbors, and even grandma. It is quick an d easy enough that you can make many to gift and a few to keep. You can customize this beauty with whichever patterned paper you choose. So grab your supplies and get ready to make an Eight Point Star Ornament. 

  • Home for Christmas Patterned Paper
  • Gold Cording
  • Red Pom Pom trim
  • Scissors
  • Liquid Glue/Crystal Effects
  • 1/16" Hole Punch
  • Bone Folder
  • Paper Trimmer
  1. Cut your Patterned Paper into two (2) 6"x 6" pieces.
  2. Fold in half both directions. Fold diagonal in both directions. You now have four folds. *Tip: Use a bone folder to create crisp fold lines.
  3. On the straight edge folds, cut a line 1 1/4" up towards the center on all four sides.
  4. Begin folding each slit inward to the diagonal score line, so that the corners form a point. Repeat on all slits (8 folds).
  5. Once all corners are folded, lightly fluff the flaps. Using liquid glue on one side of each corner triangle (I love crystal effects for this- it's strong and dries quickly), fully overlap the triangle fold onto the one next to it in that corner, forming a 3D cone. Here would be a good place to watch the video, as it is easier to show than write. Repeat with the next 3 corners. You will now have a 3D star with a hole in the back middle.
  6. Repeat steps 2-5 with the second 6" x 6" square of patterned paper.
  7. Apply glue to the back "V's" of one star and hold the other star diagonal to it and adhere.
  8. Using the 1/16" hole punch, punch a hole in the tip of the top point, string twine thought the hole and tie into a knot. Embellish with Red Pompom trim.
  9. Enjoy!
