Initially I thought of the stars as Christmas ornaments. After makind many of them as gifts for friends and neighbors, I’ve decided that they would be great decorations for almost any occasion. It all depends on the paper you choose.
These stars were made using vellum paper. It comes in lots of colors and in most cases, both sides of the paper are the same. They also look pretty if your paper is different on both sides.
You might consider making red, white, and blue ones for the 4th of July. Make white, silver, or gold ones for a wedding or anniversary, rainbow colors for birthday parties and baby showers, neon colors for teens, etc. You get the idea.
One of the most important supplies in making the ornaments is the adhesive you use. Vellum is a bit stiff and slick and needs a strong adhesive to keep the ornament glued together. I used the double sided tape called “Terrifically Tacky Tape” and still had to reassemble some of the points.
A link for downloading the file in KNK, MTC, AI, and EPS formats is below. There are four different sizes of the star and an instructional PDF file. Enjoy!
