Pleated Stars


These nifty pleated stars are easily folded from a shaped strip of paper. Simply print the template on the wrong side of your paper, then crease and fold. The stars can be used as holiday decorations or as card- or giftwrap embellishments.

Here are your free star designs:

So - you print the pattern on the flip side of your paper. Score the fold lines with a fine-point embossing tool held against a small metal ruler. Cut the star strip out. Crease mountain or valley folds as indicated. The folds meet at the star centre. The last segment overlaps (you can glue this, if desired). On the back, glue the seal over the star centre to secure it in place. Easy.

Of course, you can reduce or enlarge the patterns to suit your craft-y purpose.
For an ornament, punch a hole in a star point and add a hanging loop.

Have a starry craft session! *
