The Things She Makes: Papercraft Stars A few weeks ago, I posted a paper geometric heart tutorial and have fallen back in love with simple paper crafts. The next shape that seemed obvious for me to become obsessed with was stars. There are many a tutorial of this simple technique to transform a flat 2D star into a 3D embellishment, but here is my contribution. What I Used: Card Pencil / Ruler / Scissors Optional: template For this DIY, I created myself a simple 5-point star at the size I wanted and used this to trace around on my coloured card [but any star printed from google/Word/Pages/cut from a magazine will work just as well: Once you have traced around your template, cut your star and mark the center [note: this does not have to be exact at all. Using your scissors, score lines from this marked center to each point of the star [on a 5-point star this is 10 lines in total]: Now, for the folding - starting from the top point and working our way anti-clockwise. ...then to the line to the left, fold this away: see you next time x
