A few weeks ago, I posted a paper geometric heart tutorial and have fallen back in love with simple paper crafts. The next shape that seemed obvious for me to become obsessed with was stars. There are many a tutorial of this simple technique to transform a flat 2D star into a 3D embellishment, but here is my contribution.
What I Used:
Pencil / Ruler / Scissors
For this DIY, I created myself a simple 5-point star at the size I wanted and used this to trace around on my coloured card [but any star printed from google/Word/Pages/cut from a magazine will work just as well:
[on a 5-point star this is 10 lines in total]:
Fold along the top point line towards you:
Gently press in the center to make the star edges sit flush with a flat surface and to change
the height of the 3D effect:
Make as many stars, in as many different colours [or patterns] as you like:
I'm creating lists of other things I can create with these effects. Let me know if there is
anything in particular you'd like to see, or anything you've tried already.
Letters and Numbers are already being made!
