I love you for life! I am going to make these for my boyfriend for Valentines day on the jar and I am going to have the super cheeseo quote "Last night I looked up and matched each star with a reason why I love you. I was doing great until I ran out of stars." HOWEVER, I would like to write a reason inside each of the stars for him to open up over time. Once folded how easily can these be unfolded? And is there a certain sized strip I should used to make sure he will be able to unfold them?
i made 273 stars (yeah i counted them) , like these for my boyfriend last year.i even wrote messages inside. They turned out really cute.but the tip of my fingers started to hurt. about your question. well, once you unfold it, it is really easy to be folded again, cuz the creases have already been made. but after unfolding it alot of times, it becomes really flat. and a good guide for the sizes of the strips, would be the lines in a notebook paper. it's length and width are fine.
i hope i was of help. and you i hope you can understand my English, cuz it's not my first language.
