How To Make Easy Star Craft for Kids
Time needed: 15 minutes
- Cut a square from craft paper.
Take the construction papers and cut out a square sheet from each paper. We used glitter construction paper and cut out a 5 x 5 inch square. You can adjust the size of the square depending on how big or small you want to make the paper star.
- Fold horizontally
Fold the square paper horizontally to match the side. Unfold and do the same with the other side.
- Fold along the diagonal
Next, fold the paper along the diagonal to match the vertex and unfold. Repeat for the second diagonal as well. Now, you have creases dividing the square into 8 triangles.
- Make marks on the paper for folding
Using a ruler and a pencil, make marks almost halfway to the center of the square on the non-diagonal creases.
- Cut along creases
Using scissors cut along the non-diagonal creases upto the marks.
- Fold the paper to make triangles
Fold the cut end along the diagonal crease to make a triangle. Repeat it for all the points to make eight small triangles.
- Glue the sides of triangles
Slide one triangle underneath the other triangle of the same corner and glue them together. Repeat for all corners to make a 3D four pointer star. Glue a loop on one corner of the star.
- Repeat the steps to make another 4 pointer star and glue both the paper stars.
Make another star with other craft paper. Paste it on top of the other star to complete your cute 3D star paper craft.
