I'm in love with stars. Last year I bought a 3-d star to hang in my kitchen
So naturally, now I want more of them. I decided to make my own. I started with a foil oven linerlike this:
and since I already had the star, I just traced around it with a sharp pen and cut out the shape. If you don't have a star to work from, there are templates HERE
After cutting out the star, I molded it onto the tin star and used my finger nail to make the folds sharp so that they would hold their shapes.
If you don't have a star shape to work from, you need to make a crease down the center points and then a reverse crease in the sections between the points.
Here they are after spray painting with Rustoleum Espresso and sanding:
and for an added festive touch, I made another smaller star from some awesome Christmas wrapping paper I found in a sheet music pattern. After cutting out the star, I just taped it onto the tin star with magic tape.
Have a look at the link below, it lays the folding process out clearly and you can make your own paper 3-d stars!
