Procedure

Step 1: Taking A Sheet Of Paper

A Sheet Of Paper-Crafting a Simple Star with Paper

Take a sheet of paper and make four folds on it horizontally. Press it down with your fingernail to make it prominent make and unfold the sheet.

Step 2: Cutting The Folds

Cutting The Folds-Creating a Paper Star Easily

Take a pair of scissors and cut the sheet into five pieces. All six cuts should be on the marks made earlier leaving you with four big strips. The strip should be 18.8 cm in length.

Step 3: Making Marks On The Strips

Making Marks On The Strips-Constructing a Star Out of Craft Paper

Take a scale and a pencil and make three marks on the strip at a distance of 7.5cm from the ends and 3.6 cm in the middle.

Step 4: Complete All The Strips

Complete All The Strips-Building a Paper Star with Ease

Repeat the same process on the rest of the four strips.

Step 5: Cutting The Strips

Cut The Strips-Generating a Star with Art Supplies

Take a pair of scissors and make cuts on the marks you made in the previous step. The cut should only cover half the surface of the strip. Repeat the process on all the strips.

Step 6: Making Space Between The Cuts

Making Space Between The Cuts-Making a Paper Star with No Difficulty

Hold the strip horizontally and gently twist it around the surface of the cuts to make a little space between them to open them a little bit. Repeat the process on all the strips. Remember to be extremely gentle while doing that because the sheet might tear in the process.

Step 7: Fitting The Cuts Together

Fitting The Cuts Together-Producing a Star out of Constructive Paper

Take two of these strips and insert the top cut of one sheet into the top cut of another, fitting them into each other properly. Hold one sheet horizontally and another one vertically as shown in the picture below.

Step 8: Fitting In The Third Sheet

Fitting In The Third Sheet-Developing a Star from Craft Paper Quickly

Turn the fitted sheets around and insert the bottom cut of the previous sheet into the top cut of the third sheet. Fit them in gently and properly.

Step 9: Inserting More Cuts

Insert More Cuts-Fabricating a Star with Artistic Paper Simply

Take the fourth sheet and insert the top cut in the bottom cut of the first strip. Take the fifth strip and insert the top cut in the bottom cut of the third strip and the bottom cut of the fifth strip in the bottom cut of the fourth strip. That leaves us with well-fitted cuts.

Step 10: Sealing The Ends

Sealing The Ends-Crafting a simple paper star from craft paper

Take a big transparent tape and cut a small piece out of it and seal the open ends of the strips with each other by simply placing the tape on the corner made by these ends.

Step 11: Connecting All The Ends

Connect All The Ends-Construct a straightforward paper star using craft paper

Cut out small pieces of tape and similarly seal all the ends. There should be five holes at the sides of the star and one big hole in the middle making a total of six holes. With this our star is ready.

Finally, The Star Is Born!

Finally, The Star Is Born!-Form a basic paper star with craft paper

You can also use a piece of knitting wool to make the star hang. To do that, you just need to pass the wood through the top corner of the star and tie the open ends of the wool. Hang the loop of the wool wherever you want to make the star float in the air like it does in the scape or you can simply use it as a table decoration.

This leaves us with a beautiful 3-dimensional star. Today we learned to work with tapes and cuts. You can take this learning and apply it on similar sheets of paper to create different art forms. Remember to collect all the techniques you learn in the tutorial as they will help you in creating more profound and amazing craft. These tutorials are your journey to perfecting your skill so, don’t forget to club these experiences together to step a little bit further toward your goal. This tutorial also has been an upgradation from knowing to make a 1-dimensional star to a 3-dimensional one. That’s a huge leap! Keep taking smaller leaps as well to ultimately achieve a bigger one and help your art grow with you. Work hard and don’t forget to enjoy the process. GOOD LUCK!
