Cut 8 equal-length paper strips. For example, you can cut one long paper strip into 4 equal pieces.
Glue each paper strip together, with the ends facing each other.
Put 4 of the glued paper strips together, rounded parts facing each other, to make a four-pointed star. Glue the pieces together.
Now glue the other 4 paper strips between the points of the star.
Use a needle to string a piece of thread through one of the star’s points as a hanger.
Making your own Christmas decorations is a wonderfully cosy craft, and you can fold classic paper decorations for the tree. With paper strips, you can make braided and folded stars. Instructions for folding paper stars are included with the star strips. But you can also cut up the strips and fold them to make a beautiful star like the one seen here.
