Here are your printables-
Patchwork Star Matchbox Ornaments, so they will co-ordinate perfectly.
Now I'll talk you through the making-up:
|Crease folds as above.|
|Start at the top.|
The stars join together in a zig-zag formation:
One side up, next side down, front to back, back to front - all around the star. Make sure that the little inter-star tabs are placed underneath the adjacent flap.
Pic above shows gluing an flap upwards. The adjacent flap has been temporarily folded back out of the way to allow clear access. (You can see one of the little triangular tabs just below the bent-back flap.)
Above, the flap that was bent back in the previous pic has been bent downwards and glued in place.
|A look inside.|
I like to star gluing at the star apex, go partially the way around, then return to the apex and proceed in the opposite direction. I then complete the gluing at the bottom of the star. This ensures that the star
apex is all neat and tidy.
If you want to add the element of sound, pop a jingle bell inside before you've finished gluing.
Star's finished now. Just add the hanging loop and charm.
Remember that these Puffy Stars are designed to co-ordinate with the
