Star Anise Paper Garland

Six semicircles have been joined together to create a flower-like form or star anise spice garland. I have chosen decorative Japanese papers to make them.

Approximate Time: 30 mins.



  • decorative Japanese papers
  • mini chain nose pliers
  • 2 inch eye pins
  • 2 inch circle punch
  • white pearly beads
  • glue stick
  • scissors
  • baker's twine (for garland)


  1. Punch 3 circle shapes from decorative Japanese paper. Fold them in half and cut along the fold with scissors.

  2. Fold semicircle in half again so that you have six folded semicircles.

  3. Place two folded semicircles side by side and glue the flaps together. Add the remaining semicircles one at a time to complete the shape. Press all the joined sides together firmly.


  4. Thread two pearly beads on to an eye pin. Push it carefully down the center of the decoration and thread another pearl on to an end. Using pliers, twist the other end of the pin into a loop to keep it in place.

  5. Make several of the decorations and thread on to a length of baker's twine or thin wire to make a garland.
