I came across these gorgeous paper stars on a blog today and was blown away by just how simple they are to make! I love that they can be made from newspaper and so are a totally green idea, just like the magazine trees - plus they are free if you get a local paper delivered! There is a really clear youTube video
I tried making these using 12x12 paper and needed two strips of 1" x 12" for each star. We made dozens this evening and they look fab!
