archerpren: paper stars are so easy to make, takes a little practice to get them good tho. if you buy the paper start papers then it shows how to on the packet but u can just look it up online.


theres that but, not that great.

saltypear: what do you make your stars from? like the little packets of corret size paper? or just cut your own.

i do both. and magazines work wonderfully as well, they give you a great colour variaty and pattern. i went on a huge craze and must have made at least a thousand of them. i like the paper from the packets, ive never seen them anywhere but here in asia.

I agree!  Those stars are super easy & quick to make.  And they look sooo pretty! Cheesy

Want to learn to crochet or knit?  I have a ton of extra crochet hooks & circular knitting needles.  Will throw in some pattern books and yarn for anyone interested in a swap.

Shocked Wow, I recently found an older post with an oragami star project someone made. Since then I have made about 100 stars from old magazines. Now I am searching for a good sealer to put on them so the paper stays secure. I havent figured out what I will do with them all, but for now they look awesome in an old jar I put them in.

Those are great! I too have a jar of joy. I've found a bunch of printable scrapbooking papers online, then I printed half of a 8.5 x 11 sheet of paper with the pattern (cause only half is showing, no need to waste all that ink). I've got a vase that I'm working on filling. Here's my most recent pic, but since then I've gotten it up to the skinny part of the vase.

There are lots of sites that have digital scrapbooking freebies. Do a google search for free digital scrapbook papers and you'll probably get a bunch of sites. I crop it down to 8.5 by 5.5 (landscape), and print it on the top half of a 8.5 by 11 inch sheet of paper. From there I cut the strips to 1/2 inch by 11 inch with my handy paper trimmer.

i am just wondering, for both people who posted them, how big the jar is, and how big the stars are, about... i want to compare to my working vase, i am slowly filling it, and i have skewers with origami flowers coming out of the vase and i am curious for comparison reasons, i also have a mini jar (its got a circumfrence of about an inch and is about 3/4 of an inch tall and i have about 20 tiny stars in there... my other vase is about a foot tall, and is just under half way with about 2500 stars
