Happy Holidays!

3-D PAPER STARS

These delicate stars are far simpler to make than they appear. Hang them on your Christmas tree or decorate the party room with them by hanging several at varying lengths from a chandelier, doorframe or light fixture. For a variation, cut bell shapes from holiday sheet music and assemble in the same way as the stars.

You’ll Need:

Star cookie cutter or stencil

Art paper in holiday tones

Scissors

Stapler

Squirt-out glitter glue or puffy paint, (optional)

Assorted thin ribbons

Craft glue

1. Use cookie cutter or stencil to trace around and cut out three identical stars from the art paper. With point at top, fold two stars in half vertically.

2. Place folded stars on either side of remaining (flat) star and staple together along vertical fold with a single staple. Decorate with glitter glue and/or paint, if using; let dry. Cut ribbons for hanging stars and attach with a dot of craft glue.

OUR “HOLIDAY STRIPES” BASKET IS THE PERFECT GIFT FOR THE SWEET TOOTH ON YOUR LIST!
