Christmas Paper Crafts - Learn how to make a German paper star "Froebel Star"

White makes a beautiful color for these stars and the more there are on a tree, the more impressive the stars look. You may also choose to make 2 colored or even 4 different colored stars. You are not limited to the size of the star either. Just vary on the width and length of the paper strips. These stars were made using a 5 mm wide red metallic curling ribbon. This is another red and white star.

A silver metallic star looks also fantastic! No matter which color you choose, the stars are very appealing. Easy DIY folded paper cookie & treat gift box tutorial. Because I’m always looking for a good excuse to make cookies, I’ve been trying to give more of my baked goods away lately.

easy DIY folded paper cookie & treat gift box tutorial

But I’m a terrible grocery shopper {I don’t think I’ve ever gone to the store and actually purchased everything on my list } and I always forget to buy paper plates, so I never have anything to give my baked goods away on. And it’s just too embarrassing to show up on someone’s doorstep with a baggie of cookies, you know? So last summer I created some folded paper cookie, cupcake, brownie, and truffle boxes so I could put my old scrapbook paper to good use as treat packaging (downloadable templates here).

Each box takes two pieces of 8.5×11 cardstock and is just plain cute. An Insanely Detailed Boeing 777 Airliner Made from Only Manilla Folders.

The jets body opens to reveal what you’d expect – seating for business through coach replicated down to the tiniest detail. But that’s just the start of the realism. Landing gear retracts, pivots and has all the hydraulic pistons you’d see on the real thing. Jet engines have realistically shaped fan blades and transform for reverse thrust on landing. Luca started on the model in 2008, and now six years later his work continues.

See the videos below to get an idea Luca’s insane attention to detail. Books of the year 2015 - a scientist's reading list. Here continueth a tradition I started way back in 2013, having resolved at the beginning of that year to read less internet and more books.

Books of the year 2015 - a scientist's reading list

I present a review of the twenty-three titles that I got though in 2015, in the order that they were read. As in 2013 and 2014 my predilection for non-fiction remains. The mix of science, science policy, history and biography is leavened by just six novels and one play.
