This one has 148 stars in it, I used a tea bottle.
I made it for my mom and dads anniversary. :]

You are my sweetest downfall. I loved you first, I loved you first. Beneath the sheets of paper lies my truth.

Cool anniversary gift.  Question for you.... I am able to fold the strips, but I can't seem to be able to "poke" them right to make the points.  I tried to do it with my fingernail, but the paper just won't give.  What do you use?

I just take my fingers and push in the corners it usually pops out but even now that I've made them for a while sometimes they wont pop out for me so I go back and usually I folded it to tight or I didn't fold one fold straight, they get tricky. If you need anything else just ask.

You can try using the edge of a ruler to indent the sides of your folded pentagon... but if you're having trouble poking the sides in there's usually something a bit off... like your paper is on the thicker side, your wrapped it too many times, or like meganbailey said, you wrapped it too tight.

Thank you for the comment!
Yea that sounds good what would be neat is find a clear apple that you can open and fill it full.
My cousins having a baby I'm going to get a baby bottle and get pastel colors and make her one.
There's so many neat things you can do with these stars.
Good luck on making one :]

So I tried my hand with regular paper at lucky stars last night/today.  Smiley
I looked up prices for the actual lucky star paper, so my question is this.
Is $2.20 for 80 strips a good deal?
It sounds like it to me but I'm new to this.  Roll Eyes

Well I have never bought the strips what I do is go to walmart and get rainbow colored paper for about 5 dollars and I take a sheet and fold it and stick them into my paper cutter and do that til my paper is into 16 strips, I make 16 strips out of one piece of paper. I know this is hard to understand but this is my cheap way of doing it, it is harder but I do it cause its cheaper. To answer your question 2.20 sounds like a good deal to me that's 80 stars, they have so many strips on ebay just type in origami lucky star, they even got Hello Kitty my favorite! I hope this helped :]
