Winter Wonderland Paper Stars with Free Tutorial

Yesterday I promised to post the instructions on how to make these fabulous Paper Stars that can be seen with the Winter Wonderland suite in the Autumn/Winter Seasonal Catalogue 2015. 

To make these stars, firstly you will need two 6" x 6" squares of your chosen Designer Series Paper. 

1. Fold the square in half diagonally in both directions
2. Fold the square in half horizontally in both directions

3. Along the four horizontal lines, make a mark at 1 1/4" and cut to this mark
4. Fold in from this mark, taking the edge to the diagonal crease line

5. Fold the other edge in to create a point to the corner and repeat on all four corners.
6. Place adhesive on one side of the point flaps as shown

7. Take one flap over the other to create a point and adhere. Repeat all round
8. Repeat on the second square to create two identical flat backed stars

9. Place some glue dots at the points where the other star touches when sat crossed over.
10. Adhere the two stars together using these glue dots. 

You can punch a tiny hole to the top of one point and thread cording through to hang it.

I hope you find this tutorial easy to follow and you enjoy making your own hanging stars. 

Enjoy the rest of the weekend.
