I did it again!  Grin I folded each star from 3x70mm paper strips in rainbow colours. Each star is a little under 5mm across. The Chinese characters on each star were also painstakingly handwritten on both sides by myself. Here are the definitions of the Chinese symbols on each star:
Dark pink -> Happiness
Light pink -> Youth
Orange -> Health
Yellow -> Friendship
Green -> Family
Light blue -> Success
Dark blue -> Peace
Purple -> Love

Trust me they are simplified/modern Chinese characters, I learned Chinese for 12 years  Grin The Japanese adopted some traditional Chinese characters and call them Kanji, but they don't have Kanji characters for every word and sometimes use other original Japanese scripts like "hiragana" or "katakana". More info on Wikipedie http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kanji

Got them from a local gift shop, I'm in Malaysia btw  Wink

How in the world do you get the paper to fold?  Do you use tweezers?

I cannot believe how tiny those are! Great work! How did you manage to even fold them so small? I would have squashed them by mistake. lol
