This week I made these 3D Christmas stars which my children adore and they now want to make millions! I loved making them and they are simple but effective. I have kept mine plain and simple as I like them in white but you can use any paper you like. Just print the templates here on to any paper you desire.
What you will need
- A4/A3 Paper for printing the template onto
- Paper cutting knife
- Paper cutting board
- Bakers Twine (Optional for hanging)
Cut out the templates carefully. You will need two templates for the double sided star. I cut off the black lines around the sides as they can show up through white paper.
Score gently with the paper cutting knife or some sharp scissors along the dotted lines. Be careful to do it gently so as not to go through the paper.
Gently fold all the creases you have made including the outside flaps that will need gluing.
Glue all the outside flaps then make the bakers twine loop with some cellotape on the end to attach to one star.
Place one star onto on the other and glue them together. You should then be able to pull the star gently into its 3D form.
