Folded stars

January is over ... and I have not even posted ONE 

So here it comes ...

I actually made these already a while ago. But somehow finding the time to type up posts becomes harder and harder.

Well, just shortly before Christmas ... and during Christmas actually ... I learned how to make these folded stars. 
They are made out of square papers and are just folded - and stuck together. 

You have to fold 30 pieces of paper. 

In Germany they are called Bascetta-stars. 

Anyone can tell me whether that is the same in the rest of the world?

This one is a star made out of special paper that has different prints/ colors on both sides. 
It looks really pretty, don't you think?

After I had made this one I was out of the pretty paper ... and I figured I could ge a bit inventive ...
So I ended up using this:

This is a rather old book with musical notes.

I love musical sheets. 

So I had to try whether it would look good. And this is how it turned out:

I totally adore it!

And as you have to cut the pages to squares there is always a paper strip left over. So what did I do?
I cut squares out of the left over bits ... and made a tiny star:

Here you can see both together:

This was so much fun!
I am actually working on another recycled star. 
No musical sheets though ... curious? ;-)
But it might take a bit until it is done ...

The folding and the putting together is really relaxing ... but the cutting of the squares is simply booooooring! :-)

That's really pretty. Not sure I'd have the patience for thirty sheets though!

Those look like so much fun. I'm your newest follower. I'm having my first link party tomorrow (Monday). It would be great if you could stop by and post your project.

Jamie said...

Thank you for joining the link party. and to answer your questions... Yes you can add more than one project. Feel free to add as many as you like. And I'm not picky on what kind of project you add.
