Origami Lucky Star Tutorial

Hi, everyone!
There are many legends surrounding these stars - they bring good luck in life and in love! Giving a jar full of stars is a sign of friendship and devotion.
So, I made a tutorial on how to create a Origami Lucky Star



Please let me know if you have any questions
I want to thank Cheryl for the idea!

Decoration tips

I searched on the internet for some decoration ideas and here is what I found....
  • The great thing about these stars is that you can made them as small as you like and create jewelry

  • You can create Christmas Decorations:

  • Make dozens and dozens of the tiny, colorful stars. Each can be for the same hope or dream, or you can write a different wish in each. Fill up a tall, clear glass Dream Star jar or bottle. Place a ribbon around the neck of the jar or bottle. Use it as a decoration on your desk or in your room.

aaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhh you did it you did it! brilliant! thank you sooooo much :0)
I do have one question - how long does the strip of paper have to be?
You made that look so easy. I think I'll have to try MANY times before I post my attempt :-)

The paper strip that I use in the video is 48cm long and 2 cm wide, but the star is very big. For a little one I use a strip of 24 cm long and 1 cm wide. Also the paper you use shouldn't be too flimsy or too heavy or you'll have trouble folding it.
I glad that you like it! I can not wait to see the result! Have fun folding them :)
Hugs, Alina!

ti-ai lustruit ghetutele? :)

ai fost cuminte?

daca da,

Sf Nicolae sa-ti umple casa de caldura, bucurie si dragoste, de miros de scortisoara si turta dulce, de cantul sfant al colindelor mult iubite ...si sa-ti aduca in ghetute tot ce iti doresti..

daca nu,

Sf Nicolae sa-ti umple casa de caldura, bucurie si dragoste, de miros de scortisoara si turta dulce, de cantul sfant al colindelor mult iubite ...si sa-ti aduca in ghetute tot ce iti doresti..

cu drag vicky
