Folded Paper Star - folded paper starEvery time the month of September starts, we also start thinking of decorations for Christmas. We usually decorate every September and sometimes we remove them on February or March. It's our one thrifty way to save time and money during the Christmas season, so today I started making a paper star which I might be able to use as decoration.



  • 6 pieces square origami papers of the same exact sizes

  5. Hold the points from the horizontal fold and bring them both to the center point in the bottom line and flatten.

Similar to origami, kirigami is a paper folding technique that does require some cutting to make your finished creation. It is perfect for making 3D paper stars to use as decorations.
