These stars are just some of the most beautiful things I've ever seen! Your designs and colouring are breath-taking! You really should try selling them. I can completely see them turning up in the pages of some fancy style magazine as the latest thing to have. Kits would be good too, so it would be easier to sell by post. You could do ones with your designs printed on for people to colour & build, and one that are coloured and cut out by you ready to be constructed.

For a lot of the patterns, each point has a letter. So the whole first point is point A. Another point would have a tab that sez "A" which attaches to somewhere on point A.
An easier one would maybe be the first page of http://waxor.com/~child/pdfs/stars/small_stellated_dodecahedron_v3.pdf
or page 10 of http://waxor.com/~child/pdfs/stars/colored-kepler-poinsot.PDF
because the whole star is made out of one piece of paper. Once you glue the individual points (first glue the long tabs before you start worrying about the short tabs), it sorta makes itself clear where each one (short tab) should be glued.

I bought something like that when I went to Disney Land a really long time ago. But mine is just a regular star, upside down with a cord that goes into a slit between two of the points and has a lightbulb that attaches by tying a string around the cord.
Pretty simplistic, and definately not as beautiful as yours. The paper is pretty thin and light, looks homemade or at least recycled. The light bulb is just a regular run-of-the-mill type. So I'm pretty sure you'd be safe going with just a smaller watt bulb.

AWESOME.

I know what I'm making my FIL for Christmas.  He would LOVE this stuff!

I have a question about the patterns...  how do you get them to repeat and line up so perfectly?  I won't be using Illustrator or anything...  so how did you do it in the beginning, before you started using the computer?  How can you tell what direction to orient the pattern?  I think I would get two sides of the point correct and then the third would have the pattern upside down or something...

Thanks in advance for your help!

EDIT:  I went back and re-read this thread, and then I decided to play...  I made a mark-up version out of a plain white piece of paper...  I get it!  And I understand how I could make the pattern and then re-trace it...  WOW these stars will take a long time to make.  I'm in awe of the number and beauty of the ones that you have done!  Here is my practice one:
