Just a bit confused... Huh I have all the spikes ready...but how do I join them together (to make the complete curcle)

Great tut though, thanks for posting it Smiley

I made two of these. The one on the left is from your pattern, I used 3.5" (side measurement) squares and got an overall diameter of ~5".

The one on the right is the pattern that I found (and begun) before you posted your tutorial. Using the same 3.5" (side measurement) squares, I got an overall diameter of ~6". I think this one looks very "loose", indeed the joinery is not as secure as your model.

Which one do you all like better?

Now to just find pretty double-sided paper...

I like both! And if you used two sided paper they would look differently although the shape is similar! how large are they?

I edited my tut, to include, that indeed each square is part of two spikes. Hope that helps.

I like the second one, too. Thanks for posting your pictures.
Using double-sided paper sounds like a very good idea - now I have to go shopping soon. Wink

last week i saw those 3-D-Stars at a christmas-fair. The had made them from strong pergament (transparent)paper and filled a chain of mini-lights inside. Looked awsome. They even made smaler stars and put as many stars on that chain of mini-lights as they had bulbs on it.

I'm working on one right now... not quite sure yet how you attach them all to make 20 spikes... but I guess I'll figure it out when i'm done!  I managed to make an enclosed shape of 4 or 5 spikes, haha.
