25 Days of Crafts! Day 19: Paper Star

- paper, vellum preferably
- vellum tape, a dry adhesive that won't warp paper available at craft stores

Below is a photo of basic directions to fold and assemble a star. I cut out 5 2x2" squares. When attaching sections, transfer adhesive to areas where each section will overlap another. It takes a little time, but older kids might enjoy this. I like the translucent quality of vellum paper, but any paper will do. Use an exacto-knife to cut a little slit near a point on one fold to loop ribbon through. You can also hang these in front of windows for a stained-glass effect.
