Last year I made these paper star ornaments, and took step-by-step pictures with the intention to post a tutorial, but, you know, life. Looking at the pictures now, some of them are not as clear as I’d hoped, so while I’m still chuffed about the ornaments themselves, instead of posting a full tutorial, I’ll just refer you to this video on YouTube. There are several other videos on there on how to make these stars as well.
Depending on what paper you use the stars will come out looking very different. I used pages from an old book for my stars – of course I didn’t use a book that was unique or in any way valuable. They are quite simple to make, and require only the most basic tools (paper, ruler, pencil, scissors, glue), so you don’t need a full array of crafting paraphernalia to give them a try. You can use them as is, or put some kind of trim in the centre.
I finished mine off with small silhouette images I drew of the Nativity story. Here’s a free printable if you’d like to use them in one of your own crafts. If you do, please comment, link, or tag me on Facebook or Instagram.
We still haven’t unpacked after our move, and my fingers are itching to sew. I have one event I hope to attend next spring, and I need to get started on the things Baby and I will need for it. Hopefully there will be some historical sewing next year!
