does anyone else remember lucky stars? those origami stars made by gently tying paper? bc I've never heard anyone else acknowledge them and i think I'm going mad
I swear I've seen them around but I don't know how to make them
you tear (or cut) off a strip of paper, and gently tie the end. you flatten the knot to make a pentagon, and then wrap the rest of the strip around that. then, you tuck the last bit into a fold. then you bend each side slightly under, to make the star shape.i suggest looking up the origami way tutorial, as that's how I learned it quickly in 5th grade
those look pretty cool
yes, i used to make a million some years ago, don't go mad, people just never paid attention but they were always around
>>593161There's a whole (and old) thread about it >>546816
I made a jar of them in middle school and occasionally still make them with straw wrappers. It was my first longterm paper project so it brings good memories
remember making tons of these when I first got into origami. theyre amazing
>>593161Love them, they were a huge deal back in the day. never found how to make them.>>593201
>>593161i used to love these back as a kid. they're pretty easy. kinda tedious to cut strips of paper but the colored precut papers are a blessing!
>>593646Here is how you make paper stars
>>593161I know on Amazon you can buy a thousand strips of paper for making lucky stars for like $10.
>>593161I knit to keep my hands busy. One day in the office in a meeting my boss said he didn't like it. I started making those stars instead and he'd take them home to his kids. Why that was any different, I'll never know.
