Paper Stars

Yesterday I played with glitter paper.
I made these stars, following this tutorial. 

Quick and easy ! The stars look great if you glue them on a window. And if you use semi-transparent paper, the pattern of the star looks even more complicated.

It is very easy to fold the 8 pieces.

Glue can be used to assemble the star. Since my paper was very thick, I stitched them together, using  invisible thread.

Here is the back of the star.
This star can be easily made out of fabric and then it could be appliqued on a background fabric.
A very easy and quick star block.

And the best tool to get rid of all the glitter from your clothes, desk or floor ? The lint roller!

Now to see where to hang them, I think they will become the favorite new toy of our two cats!

Thanks for posting Geta ! I love these... I was looking for something simple to do to pass out to friends that drop in this season and for bows on packages! This is IT! I think I will make up a basket of them :)
Thanks for the tutorial. With a little ribbon on top will hang nicely on the tree too!
