DIYing has become the order of the day and internet is the hub of ideas for you. You can almost recycle everything after watching 3 to 4 tutorials on YouTube. Crafting and scrapbooking is so fun when your mind is filled with ideas. You can decorate your room with your DIYs. You can make DIY gifts for your friends. Or you can just DIY for the sake of it. Its fun, it’s easy and it almost costs you nothing.
Today I’m here with a DIY, as well. I’ll be showing you how to make origami paper lucky stars. Ever seen those tiny lots of twinkles? Well, I saw them somewhere and instantly fell in love with them. They look so adorable and you just can’t resist having them. So I got to making them and I’ve made like a gazillion tiny ones for myself. They were so many so I just hung them on my wardrobe like this;
So, I thought why not show you guys how to make your own lucky stars. 🙂
NOTE: Making these stars can be addictive. <wink>
Here’s what you are going to need to make you very own lucky stars:
1. Origami Papers of different colors
2. Paper Cutter or X-Acto Knife
3. Cutting Board
Take a paper of your desired color and with the help of a pencil and a ruler mark the paper at 0.5 inches, like this;
Mark the paper after each 0.5 inch till you get your desired number, as each half inch makes one lucky star. When you have marked the paper it should look like this:
After making the marks, grab your paper cutter or x-acto knife and start cutting the half inched strips.
Make as many as you want and in as many colors as you want.
Step by Step Guide:
Step 1 – Take a 0.5” inch in width strip of origami paper of your choice of color.
Step 2 – Make a cancer loop with it.
Step 3 – Pass the loose end through the loop to make a knot.
Step 4 – After making a knot, press and pull the knot to make it tighter.
Step 5 – Turn over the strip.
Step 6 – Tuck the loose end into the paper flap above it.
Step 7 – Press to make the shape of a star and then turn it back again.
Step 8 to Step 14 – Now these steps only involve folding the flap over and under, again and again till you reach the end of the strip.
Step 15 – Tuck the loose end of the strip into the paper flap above it, just like you did before, to secure the shape of the star.
Step 16 – Tadaaaa! You’ve got your lucky star.
