Day 245: Paper Star #2

Paper StarLast Saturday, I finished my paper star. Here’s a summary of what I did to make this.

  1. Created a star-shaped paper frame using pieces of black construction paper glued together.
  2. Glued white paper to the back of the star and then trimmed it to also be the same star shape as the frame.
  3. Glued together strips of red paper to make long strips that would fit over the whole star. I did the same with pink strips of paper.
  4. Then, I glued the strips of paper onto the star, alternating between the red and pink sort of randomly.
  5. Finally, I trimmed off any of the excess paper so that the paper strips formed to the shape of the paper star.

Mine star is now hanging on my bedroom wall, and I love it! I would guess that the whole project took about 2.5 hours total over the two days.
