Step 1: Cut paper strips with a cutter knife

Pick up your white cardboard. Use a cutter knife to cut 16 strips with a thickness of 1.5 cm from the cardboard. Note that eight of the stripes are 34 cm long (for the main elements of the star) and the remaining eight stripes are 24 cm long (for the intermediate elements). You will then receive a total of 16 strips, six of which are 34 cm and 24 cm long.

Step 1: fold the strips and glue them together. Note that the main and intermediate elements must be folded differently.

Step 2: fold the main and intermediate elements and glue them together

Once you have cut all the strips, fold each strip once in the middle. Now take your 34 cm strips at hand and fold the sides 6 cm each towards the center line. Now do the same with the 24 cm strips, but only fold 5 cm to the center line.

Glue the open ends, which have now been created on all folded strips, with a 1 cm wide adhesive layer. Now you can already see the star points. The large 34 cm strips represent the main elements of the star, while the smaller 24 cm strips represent the intermediate elements.

Now glue the eight main elements (from 34 cm strips) together on the sides so that a star is created. Then glue on the eight intermediate elements (made of 24 cm strips).

Step 2: Now glue the main elements together on the sides so that a star is created. Then it is the turn of the intermediate elements.

Step 3: attach the satin ribbon

When your paper star is ready and the glue has dried, all that is missing is a hole for the satin ribbon so that you can hang up your paper star. Simply drill a hole at the end of a star point and thread the satin ribbon.

Decoration tip: In order to be able to optimally stage the paper stars as Christmas decorations, you can hang them on a branch, such as a white birch.
