I think I'm one in a long line of people to admire those expensive sunbursts you can buy.  I thought I may be able to achieve the same effect with paper.  This is just a prototype before I go out and buy the nice paper.  Each piece is made out of folded typing paper, and they are all glued onto a scrap of cardboard.

A plus is that it is so light when complete, you can hang it with a single thumbtack and not make your landlord angry!

That's lovely! It'd be adorable in patterned paper too! How did you fold it into the shapes?

That is beautiful!  Plain white is stunning though the appeal of all the other papers out there makes the possibilities endless!

Your folding skills are fabulous.
