Lucky stars tutorial

Especially for Chantal. =)

Making the stars is pretty easy - once you have the right paper. I've tried to make some with old magazines, but somehow it just didn't work. Now I use origami paper for Fröbel stars (15 mm x 45 mm).

The first step is to tie a knot like this:

Gently tighten it

Fold the short end toward the pentagram-shaped knot (trim to make it fit if neccessary)

And tuck it into the knot

IMG_7095

Turn over and fold the long end towards the pentagon

Turn and fold again

And again... (approx. 13 - 15 times)
until it looks like this (again, trim the end if it is too long)

IMG_7098

Tuck the last part under the knot

And you have a thicker little pentagon

Now, with your fingernail make a crease

And continue on the other four sides until it looks like this:

And tadaa: you're done! =)

I hope you this tutorial makes sense (and hopefully it's not making it too complicated?).

Have fun making lots and lots of little stars!
