It is December and Christmas will be here soon! Today, I have an origami tutorial to make paper stars wonderful as decorations for your house or classroom to get into that festive mood. Paper crafts are one of my favourite because it is economical and great way to use recycled material and for this tutorial, all you really need is paper (and maybe scissors).

You need 8 pieces of square paper. It can be origami paper, constructions paper or wrapping paper. To create patterned stars, use two different types of paper, 4 of each.

Step 10: To assemble the star, you have to combine all the eight parts. Do so by taking two pieces of bunny ears. Combine two bunny ears together by inserting the shorter ear inside the longer ear. Continue until you use up all 8. Do it in a pattern if you are using two different types of paper.
