Christmas Star Decor


Hello! Good day my Friends!

I am still not into decorating for Christmas until I got free magazines from one of my favourite grocery  store. Suddenly a flash bulb over my  head. I am going to make a star Christmas decoration out of these.



I learned making this when I was in my elementary years. It was part of our Christmas art activity. Here it is…


paper craft decor, christmas star, christmas


Below is the tutorial.

Step1. fold one end across the other side like this…



 Step 2&3: cut the bottom and fold again forming a triangle



 Step 4: cut 7 straight lines across.




Step 5: Open the square.



 Step 6: Starting from the  inside. Using glue or paste, start connecting each end like this.

 

 Step 7: Turn/flip to the back



Step 8. Connect/glue 1 two ends. then flip again to the front. Do this process until you connect all the ends.




Step 9. It should look like this. Make another 4.

 Step 10. Connect all 5 using stapler




 Step 11. Lastly, connect the sides


Have Fun!!!


Be inspired, be motivated.

    This look so nice, and i love that you used advertizing magazines to make it. My mail box will be over flowing with the stuff befor christmas and this would be a nice way to recycle some of it :)
    Wish you a good day!
