I actually made these already a while ago. But somehow finding the time to type up posts becomes harder and harder.
Well, just shortly before Christmas … and during Christmas actually … I learned how to make these folded stars.
They are made out of square papers and are just folded – and stuck together.
You have to fold 30 pieces of paper.
In Germany they are called Bascetta-stars.
Anyone can tell me whether that is the same in the rest of the world?
This one is a star made out of special paper that has different prints/ colors on both sides.
It looks really pretty, don’t you think?
After I had made this one I was out of the pretty paper … and I figured I could ge a bit inventive …
So I ended up using this:
This is a rather old book with musical notes.
I love musical sheets.
So I had to try whether it would look good. And this is how it turned out:
And as you have to cut the pages to squares there is always a paper strip left over. So what did I do?
I cut squares out of the left over bits … and made a tiny star:
Here you can see both together:
This was so much fun!
I am actually working on another recycled star.
No musical sheets though … curious? ;-)
But it might take a bit until it is done …
The folding and the putting together is really relaxing … but the cutting of the squares is simply booooooring! :-)
