For my nephew’s project at school, they’re to make a Christmas lantern and one of the designs that my sister thought is to put origami lucky stars. But she doesn’t know how to do it, so I helped and taught her how. Today, I’ll be sharing the steps here for you to try too (if you don’t know yet how to make one). Enjoy! 🙂
What you’ll need:
Colored papers, scissors, ruler and pencil.
Make strips out of the papers. I used 11 inches long and ½ inch wide.
Make a knot near one end of the strip like the one in the first photo. Next, flatten the knot and tuck the loose end into the back of the knot. Then start wrapping the long end around the star. Lastly, tuck the loose end into the star.
First photo below is what it looks like if the wrapping is completed. Next step (which is my favorite part) is inflating the star. Press carefully inward on four of the 5 edges, and then it will begin to inflate. Third photo is your completed origami lucky star.
I hope my instructions were helpful. 😀 Enjoy making these, guys! 🙂 You can put them in a clean jar after.
