Lucky Paper Stars Tutorial
On one of the previous websites of kao-ani.com I had posted a Paper Stars Origami Tutorial. The instructions were written in an itsy bitsy tiny pixel font, since that was all the rage back then. Luckily I still had Little Twin Stars paper straps lying around, with these instructions:
To be honest these images confused me a little, so I’m going to try to explain it short and simple:
★ 1-3. Fold a knot into the paper strip (like picture 3) leaving a short part of strip to the left.
★ 4. Just ignore this step for now.
★ 5. Fold the short part of the strip over to the right. If it sticks out over the pentagram, just cut a little off. Now tuck it under the small flap.
★ 4+6. Start folding the large part of the strip over to the back and the front of the pentagram. Keep folding it over all the sides, until you’ve only got a small part of strip left.
★ 7. Tuck that part under the small flap.
★ 8. Use you fingernail to gently push in the middle of all the 5 sides.
★ 9. Voila, lucky stars!
Paper strips can be bought from shops like Janet Store. But you can also make your own. You may use any colorful paper starting from discarded magazines and tax papers to origami paper and gift wraps. Cut straight strips that are about 8 to 11 inches long and between 3/8 to 1/2 inch wide. It is also possible to print them (Google is your friend).
I hope you enjoyed the first flashback ^_^
