Cuteness alert! Teeny origami stars

If you know me, you know I like “tiny”. No idea why. So after yesterday´s tiny gingerbread house I have another “tiny” one today. Have you ever made origami stars? They’re adorable! What could make that even better?

And more tiny origami stars!

And with a teaspoon for scale! I LOVE these.

Once you have figured out how to make them it is really easy. To me it always takes a bit to wrap my head around such stuff … But it really is not that hard. Now even my daughter loves making these.

And it is so easy to decorate with them. Just put some in a clear glas container … or on the table … It always looks good! I love easy decorating! :-)

If you want to make your own tiny origami stars –  there are MANY tutorials out there. I used these:

video instructions and written instructions

And as you can see I made them using old music sheets. Flea market score! :-) I am a sucker for everything “musical”. Just look here

But you can use ANY paper to make these. Old magazines, printed paper, newspaper … anything really!

Do you like origami stars?

If yes, don´t be shy and leave a comment! It makes my day! :-)

Interested in more crafty and creative fun? Why not try out some mixed media techniques and make some uplifting affirmation cards?

    I love them! They would look great on top of our piano in the music room. :)

    Hmmm. Maybe this will speed up my moving boxes unpacking. Somewhere in one of them is a pile of old music books.

      Liebe Jessica,

      freut mich sehr, dass sie Dir gefallen. Ich find sie auch ganz super und werde wohl dann über Weihnachten noch ein paar mehr machen … Ich finde man kann die so schön vor sich hin falten, während die Kinder spielen oder so. :-)

      Liebe Grüße
